The American psychologist Harter developed a few scales to evaluate the self-concept. Starting point in her method are multidimensionality and the increasing differentiation in the competence fields according to age. A Croatian translation of Harter’s questionnaire “The Self Perception Profile for Adolescents” (SPPA) was used in 30 visually impaired (B2 classification) adolescents. Reliability, in terms of internal consistency was evaluated and the results were compared to those of foreign studies with the sighted adolescent population. Differences between the results of boys and girls were discussed, and differences between profiles of a visually impaired adolescents and their normally sighted peers. Also, the differences between cultures can be detected because the questionnaire was used in several international studies. The aim of this study was to construct a Croatian version of the Self-Perception Profile for Adolescents (SPPA) with visual impairment. The research focuses on the reliability and validity of the Croatian version. The presented research investigated the reliability and validity of a Perceived Competence Scale based on the American (Harter’s) original – SPPA. It was established to assess the adolescent’s perception on school, social, athletic, physical, job, romantic, behavior, close friendship and global selfworth domains. The subjects (N=30) were tested twice in order to investigate the stability between test and retest. The results indicate high test-retest correlations and high internal reliabilities. The correlations among subscales were moderate good. It is concluded that SPPA is a reliable and valid instrument for determining the perception of adolescents on all domains mentioned above. Further research is needed to make the construct of competence more useful for visually impaired adolescents, because the feeling of competence will encourage the adolescent to learn new skills.
