Objective − This study aims to develop a psychometric for assessing family care in adolescents using Indonesian local wisdom among Pandalungan families in the Eastern region of Java Island, Indonesia.

Methods − This was a cross-sectional study conducted with N=1,023 using questionnaires developed to identify the domain of inquiry into Pandalungan local wisdom, which is strongly related to spirituality, structure, function, and family development tasks. Multiple factors of the psychometric were examined using construct validity with exploratory factor analysis (EFA), confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), as well as content validity using Content Validity Index (CVI). Additionally, internal consistency was explored using Cronbach’s alpha coefficient.

Results – The EFA results showed eleven factors including family faith and beliefs, communication, values and norms, role, decision making, affective, socialization, economy, reproduction, health care, and development tasks with 52 items accounting for 62.13% of explained variance and the CFA fit for the construct validity of Caring Adolescent with Local Wisdom. Furthermore, the CVI indicated adequate content validity ranging from 0.80 – 0.10 and high internal consistency of 0.98.

Conclusion – The psychometric scale contains valid, reliable, and robust measures, but the domain of family healthcare exhibited slightly low internal consistency, thereby demonstrating the need for further investigations.
