Statistical information of the test GalaEmo for the measurement of emotional intelligence.
The test has been standardized using a sample of 741 professional of various professional fields allover Greece and the World.
The test possesses good psychometric qualities.
More specifically, the internal consistency reliability (or alternatively known as the Kuder-Richardson formula) of the scale is:
Cronbach a = 0,8979
Guttman Split - half = 0, 8378
Equal Length Spearman Brown = 0, 8448
The reliability of the sub-scales is also satisfactory.
Subscale 1 : a= 0,72
Subscale 2 : a= 0,69
Subscale 3 : a= 0,70
Subscale 4 : a= 0,62
Subscale 5 : a= 0,68
The mean score of the sample
was Χ= 567, 30/875 and the standard deviation
Accordingly, the mean scores and standard deviations for the subscales are as follows:
For the subscale of Self-consciousness(Subscale 1): Χ = 119,51/175 και SD = 14,51
For the subscale of Self-regulation[/Self-control](Subscale 2): Χ = 109,75/175 και SD = 13,11
For the subscale of Motives of behaviour (Subscale 3): = 112,51/175 και SD = 10,23
For the subscale of Empathy (Subscale 4): Χ = 114,03/175 και SD = 11,78
And for the subscale of Social skills (Subscale
5): Χ = 111,51/175 και SD = 12,70.
the scale has satisfactory face validity, as it
has been designed according to Goleman's
theory (1995) and high criterion validity
(r= 0,85 ** , statistically significant at the
0,01 level) using a specific self-evaluated item
moment a validity analysis is conducted using
the original scale of Petrides & Furnham
(2001, 2003) as a criterion.
