The Emotional Quotient Questionnaire for Youth Version (EQ-i:YV) was tested and validated using a sample of 1655 Spanish students. A detailed psychometric analysis provided evidence in support of the reliability of the EQ-i:YV and the robustness of its proposed five-factor structure. Using different subsamples of participants, the associations between the EQ-i:YV and a series of relevant constructs (general intelligence, personality traits, self-concept, and academic performance) were examined, which also included data on another trait EI measure (TEIQue-ASF). Overall, the EQ-i:YV showed expected relationships to all other constructs. Finally, the standard score provided can help to interpret the emotional skills, competences and facilitators of Spanish children and adolescents.
