This study aimed to adapt the Pictorial Scale of Perceived Movement Skill Competence for Young Children (PMSC) in Greek and assess its reliability and face, construct and concurrent validity in 5-9 year-old Greek children. Face validity was conducted with 20 children, whereas a larger sample (N=227) was used to examine construct validity. Two subsamples (n=38; n=142) were used to investigate PMSC-GR test-retest reliability and concurrent validity with the Pictorial Scale of Perceived Competence and Acceptance for Young Children (PSPCSA)- physical competence subscale (PCS), respectively. The panel of experts confirmed the clarity and concept integrity of the Greek version. Temporal stability was confirmed for PMSC-GR total score and both Locomotor (LOC) (ICC .80, 95% CI .62, .89) and Object Control (OC) (ICC .91, 95% CI .82, .95) subscales. Appropriate internal consistency was found for the total score as well as for the LOC and OC scores (polychoric correlations: PMSC-GR .80; LOC .60; OC .76). Confirmatory factor analysis supported the construct validity of a one-factor and twofactor model. Scores of the PMSC and the PSPCSA-PCS were correlated to a low level. The PMSC-GR is valid and reliable for Greek children and appears to measure a different construct to general physical perceived competence.
