PURPOSES/AIMS: To develop and test psychometric characteristics of Korean version of the Index of Self-Regulation (KISR) in order to measure the level of self-regulation in maintenance of physical activity among Korean immigrant elderly in the U.S.
RATIONALE/CONCEPTUAL BASIS/BACKGROUND: The theory of self regulations has been widely applied to understanding and promoting the maintenance of physical activity. The reliability and validity of the Index of Self-Regulation for physical activity have been reported for racially diverse populations. However, a standardized Korean version of the scale has yet to be developed.
METHODS: The KISR scale was completed by bilingual researchers through person-to-person interviews at baseline (Time 1; n = 68) and 3 months following the initial interviews (Time 2; n = 30). The construct validity of the scale was assessed, using a convenience sample of 68 community-dwelling older Korean immigrants in the U.S. Internal consistency, test-retest reliability, concurrent validity, and factor analysis were conducted. Data analyses were performed using SPSS software (version 16).
RESULTS: The internal consistency of the KISR was high at both time points with Cronbach's alphas of .94 and .95, respectively. The test-retest reliability was .67. There was evidence of concurrent validity of the KISR by demonstrating significant correlations with the concepts of self-efficacy (r = .35 at Time 1; r = .47 at Time 2) and self-readiness for exercise (r = .60 at Time 1; r = .55 at Time 2). Factor analysis yielded a two-factor structure (cognitive awareness, 4 items; behavioral implementation, 5 items), explaining 89% of the common variance. All individual items had a factor loading of over .45 and a difference between an itemÆs loading on the primary factor and any other factor was at least .20.
IMPLICATIONS: The KISR was found to be reliable, valid, and culturally applicable to measure the level of self-regulation in maintenance of physical activity among Korean immigrant elderly.
