General Description

The Padua Inventory short version (PI-SV) aims to assess obsessive-compulsive symptoms severity. The PI-SV encompasses 21 items, grouped into five subscales: “Doubt”, “Magic Thinking”, “Dirt/Contamination/Washing”, “Repeated Checking”, and “Order/Symmetry Need”. A confirmatory factor analysis of the five factor model was conducted in a sample of 338 participants. This model revealed a good fit. The PI-SV showed to be a reliable measure  (α = .91).
