Psychometric Properties of Pressure Management Indicator Scale (PMI):
the Preliminary Study on a Polish Sample
INTRODUCION: The aim of this article is to present another step in the process of validation of the Polish version of the Pressure Management Indicator (PMI) scale by C.R. Cooper, H. Kahn and S. Williams that was adapted by J. F. Terelak and J. Lewandowska in the year 2000.
METHODS: We present psychometric methods that were used for the analysis of the discriminative power of particular PMI items, reliability of its subscales and validity of the whole tool.
RESULTS and DISCUSSION: Our validation analysis, performed in a group of 309 workers from the public sector, allows us to state that the results are satisfactory in terms of both reliability and validity of PMI. We found it necessary to perform further research in a larger sample to carry out factor analysis of the validated test.
CONCLUSION: The current version of PMI is characterized by good reliability and validity.
