ZANINI, Daniela Sacramento; PEIXOTO, Evandro Morais  y  NAKANO, Tatiana de Cássia. The social support scale (MOS-SSS): standardizing with item references. Temas psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.26, n.1, pp. 387-399. ISSN 1413-389X.

The Social Support Scale (MOS-SSS) aims to assess the extent to which the person has the support of others to face stressful situations. It is a widely used scale, but there is a shortage of studies evaluating its interpretative rules. This study aims to establish standards and cutoffs for MOS-SSS. The study included 998 people of both sexes, aged between 12 and 73 years (M = 27.18, SD = 9.90), from different sampling strata (61.7% college students, 14.7% of patients in treatment infertility; 10.1% of patients in treatment for eating disorder and obesity, 8.7% of patients after bariatric surgery, and 4.8% of patients treated for burns). The model of partial credits was used to establish standards relating to items by the procedure item-persons map. Rules have been established based on the processing procedure of the total score theta, which will enable the practical application of the results. The data will serve as a reference standard for the scores obtained in different studies for professionals who use this scale.
