Description Objectives. The study deals with the basic psychometric characteristics of the Czech versions of generativity methods: Loyola Generativity Scale (LGS), Generativity Behavioral Checklist (GBC), Current Generative Concerns (Gen-Current), Generative Concerns on the Life Review (Gen-Life) and Past Parental Generative Concerns (Gen-Parental). Subjects and settings. The methods were submitted for self-assessment in six samples of respondents aged 18-93 years; a total of 1,259 respondents participated in the research. Statistical analysis. Cronbach alpha and McDonald omega coefficients were used for reliability estimation; item structure in Gen-Current, Gen-Life, and Gen-Parental was verified by confirmatory factor analysis. Intercorrelation of Gen-Current, Gen-Life, and Gen-Parental subscales and their correlation with LGS was assessed using Pearson's correlation coefficient. Results. The scales have adequate reliability: LGS from 0.77 to 0.84; GBC from 0.78 to 0.93; Gen-Current from 0.90 to 0.91; Gen-Life 0.90 and Gen-Parental 0.86. Mean of factor loading of LGS items loading relevant factors was 0.56, in Gen-Current it was 0.64; in Gen-Life it was 0.63, and in Gen-Parental it was 0.60. Intercorrelation between LGS subscales was from 0.50 to 0.72; Gen-Current subscales was from 0.38 to 0.90, between Gen-Life subscales it was from 0.54 to 0.74, and between Gen-Parental subscales it was 0.80. Correlation with LGS was strongest in Gen-Current (significant for all subscales) in Gen-Life was insignificant in Ecological generativity. Gen- Parental did not significantly correlate with LGS in any subscale. Limitation. The methods used are limited mainly in cultural portability of some items.
