The Korean translations of Maudsley Obsessional-Compulsive Inventory(MOCI) and Padua Inventory(PI) were developed in this study. The MOCI and the PI were administered to 675 and 244 college students respectively, and their psychometric properties were evaluated. As compared with the MOCI, the PI was found to have higher internal consistency and temporal stability, have more stable factor structure, and include more comprehensive obsessional phenomena. On the contrary, the MOCI was found to have higher discriminant validity than the PI. Correlational analyses revealed that the subscales of two measures have good convergent/divergent validity. Finally, the nature and implications of 'doubting' and 'impaired mental control' subscales were discussed.
