Objectives:The purpose of this study was to assess the factor structures related to the Maudsley Obsessive-Compulsive Inventory (MOCI) in middle school students. Methods:A total of 1,175 7th grade students from four middle schools in Paju city completed the MOCI, Center for Epidemiological Studies-Depression scale (CES-D), and Self Esteem Scale (SES). An exploratory factor (maximum likelihood method with oblique rotation) and correlation analyses were subsequently performed. Results:The two main factors related to the MOCI were ‘intrusive thought’ and ‘contamination’. ‘Intrusive thought’ was positively correlated with the CES-D and negatively associated with the SES. ‘Contamination’ had a negative correlation with self-esteem as measured by the SES. Conclusion:The results of this study revealed a two-factor structure of obsessive and compulsive symptoms in middle school students.
