Abstract

This research used quantitative descriptive study. Using purposive sampling technique, the target population for this research consisted of a linguist and four (4) voice practicing and language pathologists. This study aimed to construct a comprehensive Tagalog self-reported voice complaint questionnaire for teachers that incorporated the concept of the World Health Organization's International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF). This questionnaire was constructed based on existing voice assessment tools, voice research literature, and researcher-formulated questions. Quantitative data was analyzed using the Content Validity Index (CVI). The study concluded that the 62-item questionnaire developed was deemed content validity by the voice experts. However, this tool cannot be used just yet for clinical practice but provides a head start for tool development and initial content validation of a voice assessment tool custom-made for teachers. Further psychometric evaluation needs to be performed for this tool to produce guaranteed valid and reliable results. Future applications of this tool will benefit patient health, service delivery, and government policy-making.
