The KKS assesses social competency understood as acquired skills determining effective human functioning in a variety of social settings. In addition to a global score, the KKS yields three sub-scores indicating level of social competency on the following dimensions: situations involving social exposure, situations demanding assertiveness and situations demanding close interpersonal contact.

DESCRIPTION: The KKS consists of 90 items – expressions of a variety of activities in the infinitive mood. Subjects rate these items on a four-point scale of effectiveness of execution of the activities. Sixty expressions apply to activities involving coping with various social situations which may be viewed as difficult (and only these are scored).

RELIABILITY: High internal consistency.

NORMS: For high school pupils (15-19 years), students and adults.

VALIDITY: Established mainly by means of factor analysis and between-group comparisons.

APPLICATIONS: The KKS may be used both in research and, as an auxiliary instrument, in diagnosis (clinical counseling, vocational counseling) and selection.
