CHINOME TORRES, Julián David; RODRIGUEZ BARRETO, Lucía Carlota  and  PINEDA-ROA, Carlos Alejandro. Scales of Neuropsychological Maturity Questionnaire in children living in Boyacá-Colombia. Ter Psicol [online]. 2020, vol.38, n.1, pp.85-101. ISSN 0718-4808.

The objective of this study was to analyze the psychometric properties and obtain the scales for the Boyacá Colombia population of the School Neuropsychological Maturity Questionnaire CUMANES. A descriptive quantitative study of psychometric character was carried out, 400 school children were evaluated, with ages between 7 and 11 years, M = 8,94 and SD = 1,812 years. To quantify the internal consistency, Cronbach's Alpha and McDonald's Omega were estimated obtaining acceptable scores. To identify the internal structure of the test, Exploratory Factor Analysis was implemented, which suggests a dimension of the construct and confirmatory factor analysis allowed to show good adjustment of the found factor. No statistically significant differences were found by the sex variable but by age. More research is needed in the Latin American population to corroborate possible cultural differences in the execution of the subtests of CUMANES. Finally, scales are presented for Colombian students according to age.
