Revision of the Infant Temperament Questionnaire.


The Infant Temperament Questionnaire, originally published in 1970, has been revised to improve its psychometric characteristics. The number of items was increased from 70 to 95, rating options were increased from three to six, more items have high-low reversals, and they are randomized as to content area. The new form was standardized on 203 4- to 8-month-old infants. Good test-retest reliability was maintained and internal consistency of the nine categories was raised to a higher level, thereby assuring a greater reliability of the instrument. These improvements should enhance the questionnaire's use in clinical and research applications.
