The Children’s Florida Obsessive Compulsive Inventory (C-FOCI) is a promising self-report measure of the presence and severity of obsessive–compulsive symptoms in children and adolescents. Although initial research showed it to have adequate psychometric properties, only one study has been published to date, which dealt exclusively with children. The aim of this report was to examine the psychometric properties of the C-FOCI across clinical and community samples of children and adolescents. The sample consisted of 94 Spanish-speaking patients with obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) and 1068 healthy community controls, aged 8–19 years. Factor analysis supported two single and independent factors (severity and symptoms), as well as metric invariance across groups for the symptom checklist and the Severity Scale. Results also indicated good reliability in terms of internal consistency and temporal stability, significant and high correlations with other OCD measures, and acceptable sensitivity and specificity for detect OCD. In summary, the C-FOCI is a promising, brief measure of 22 items for screening OCD symptoms and severity in children and adolescents.
