Abstract—This research developed and validated a Social Intelligence Inventory that could serve as an instrument in identifying the dominant type of social intelligence possessed by an individual. To some extent, this inventory would help teachers in assessing their students’ social inclination and social competencies.
This study is a research and development project (R and D). In conducting the study, efforts were made to present the study as objectively as possible and where a Social Intelligence Inventory was administered among the subject students for validation. Also established were its content validity and reliability. The subjects of this study were selected students from the Tarlac State University presently enrolled during the second semester of the school year 2005-2006. The subjects were taken as cross section sample from first year to fourth year level. Based on the findings of this study, it was concluded that the items constructed in the developed social intelligence inventory represented the different areas of social intelligence of college students. The items in the scale discriminated the students as to the indicators of social intelligence and they were all statistically valid. The experts rated the scale very satisfactory and it has a very high reliability index.
