Compulsive activity checklist and the maudsley obsessional compulsive inventory psychometric properties of two measures of obsessive compulsive disorder

Compulsive activity checklist and the maudsley obsessional compulsive inventory psychometric properties of two measures of obsessive compulsive disorder

Behavior Therapy 21(1): 117-128

The psychometric properties of two measures of obsessive-compulsive symptoms are described in this study. The Compulsive Activity Checklist (CAC) and the Maudsley Obsessional-Compulsive Inventory (MOCI) were administered to a nonclinical American sample of 579 college students. Original American norms are presented for the CAC and the MOCI. Both measures demonstrated good internal consistency and test-retest stability over a 6-7 month interval. Principal components analysis extracted three CAC factors: washing, checking and personal hygiene. Four factors were extracted for the MOCI: washing, checking, doubting and strictness. Both measures showed good convergent and divergent validity with the nine subscales of the SCL-90-R, though the results were slightly stronger for the MOCI. The results also provide additional evidence that the CAC and MOCI are measuring different aspects of obsessive-compulsive symptoms.
