The purpose of the study was to examine the psychometric properties of the Prosocial and Antisocial Behavior in Sport Scale (PABSS) developed by Kavussanu and Boardley  to measure moral behaviors in Singapore’s context. A total of 574 (boys = 296, girls = 278) school team athletes were recruited for the study. Results showed that internal reliability, convergent validity and discriminant validity of the PABSS were supported. Evidence of configural, metric and scalar invariance of the PABSS across school and gender groups were also found. The findings suggest that the PABSS can be used to measure prosocial and antisocial behaviors among school athletes in Singapore. Copyright © 2015 Multi-Science Publishing.
