  •  Jakub Hladik    


The study focuses on designing a Multicultural Competence Scale in Helping-Profession Students. The aim was to create an assessment tool of multicultural competence in students of helping professions as such a tool has been non-existent so far in the Central Europe. The scale construction was inspired by the four following instruments: CBMCS, MAKSS, MSPCCS and IIMCS. Through content validation, exploratory factor analysis and confirmatory factor analysis, the original 58 scales were reduced to a 20-item final version of the MCSHPS, which includes scales of the following five factors: Knowledge, Understanding of terms, Activity, Awareness and Communication skills.
