Tatlong Panukat: Filipino made Psychological Tests

"Tatlong Panukat: Development, Validation, and Applications of Filipino Personality Tests."


The Panukat ng Ugali at Pagkatao (PUP) had its beginnings in the early 1970s when Dr. Virgilio G. Enriquez sought to construct a test in Filipino that measured Filipino-oriented traits, behaviors, and attitudes, primarily to identify inventive talent, the main objective of a National
Science and Development Board (NSDB)-sponsored research project. The resulting test, the Panukat ng Ugali at Pagkatao (PUP), was presented in 1981 at the International Conference on Personality Assessment, after which work on the test continued over the years. In its
present form, the 160-item PUP is in Filipino with English translations for all of its items, 141 items of which are organized into 24 trait scales, 2 validity scales, plus 19 items designed to assess culturally-relevant behaviors and attitudes for use as criterion variables in personality
research such as gambling and drinking behavior. The test may also be administered with its Ilocano, Cebuano, Bicolano, Ilonggo, Kapampangan translations as guide.

The Panukat ng Pagkataong Pilipino (PPP) is a personality test which assesses nineteen (19) traits. The test is intended for the age-range of 13 years and above, although usage has mostly been with adults. At present, the PPP is available in the original Pilipino version as well as in
English. The 19 traits of the PPP have been clustered into three forms as follows: Porma K/Form K – includes those traits that are salient for interpersonal relations, Porma S/Form S – consists of personal traits, and Porma KS/Form KS – an intelligence-creativity cluster. There are
two types of norms for the PPP namely: percentiles and standardized scores.

The Masaklaw na Panukat ng Loob (Mapa ng Loob) is a 188-item personality inventory that operationalizes the Five-Factor Model with Filipino trait constructs. It is made up of four facets per factor, two interstitial scales (N and A, A and C), and a Social Desirability scale. Each
of the scales, except for the SD scale, is made up of 8 items. The inventory, constructed from 2010 to 2013 by the Personality Research Laboratory of the UP Department of Psychology, is available in both online and pen-and-paper formats. Preliminary norms based on 384 college students from Metro Manila and a Luzon university, and 190 adults from Metro Manila, are available. Reliability, validity, and factor structure evidence for the scales are adequate.
