The purpose of this study was to develop a reliable measure of BSE

competence. Comparisons among the few studies to date that address

competence are difficult because of variability both in the

criteria for determining competence and in the data collection

methods. Many studies have relied solely on various types of

self-reports, and only 2 of 29 reviewed reported data concerning

reliability or validity of the measures used. This study sought to

determine the stability of 3 self-report measures (a check-list,

open-ended probes, and a structured, pictorial format), to

determine the congruence of data obtained with the 3 measures, and

to compare self-report data with assessment of competence made by

direct observation of the subjects. The sample consisted of female

employees of a large midwestern university. To date, 516

questionnaires have been returned, and nearly half of these

subjects agreed to be contacted for either a test/retest or an

alternate form of the questionnaire. Measures of association

appropriate to the nature of the data will be used to determine

test/retest reliability, congruence among the 3 formats, and

congruence between self-report data and data obtained by direct

observation. ANOVA will be used to determine differences among the

formats. A valid, reliable tool is essential for evaluation of BSE

education programs. Women must perform BSE regularly and

competently before the efficacy of BSE can be assessed.
