Abstract

Background

Lacking valid and reliable instruments for identifying social and emotional delays in young children is a worldwide issue. The Ages & Stages Questionnaire: Social-Emotional, First Edition (ASQ:SE-1), developed in the United States, was translated to Chinese and validated on the Chinese population.

Objectives

The current study examines the convergent validity of the Chinese ASQ:SE-1 by comparing its total score with the domain and composite scores on an age-appropriate comparison instruments commonly used in China. Across six ASQ:SE-1 age intervals, a total of three comparison measures were used, according to children’s ages (i.e., Chinese Infant Toddler Social Emotional Assessment [CITSEA]; Child Behavior Checklist [CBCL], 2–3 and 4–18 year versions).

Methods

A regional sample of 618 children ages from 15 to 65 months, as well as their caregivers participated. Sample size in each ASQ:SE-1 age interval ranged from 71 to 203. Pearson correlation coefficients were analyzed.

Results

Statistically significant correlations were found between the Chinese ASQ:SE-1 and the comparison measures across age intervals. The absolute values of total score correlations ranged from .44 to .68. Some correlations approached the minimal standard for the discriminant range, especially with the sub-domains of the comparison measures.

Conclusions

Findings provided partial evidence for convergent validity between the ASQ:SE-1 and the competence scale of the CITSEA for 24- and 30-month olds. This study adds to the knowledge of evidence in support of strengths-based, parent-friendly screening instruments for use in China, as well as a need for caution in selection of instruments.
