MUNOZ, Francisco; ZUECK, María C; GASTELUM, Gabriel  y  GUEDEA, Julio C. Factor structure of a self-efficacy scale in the sociocultural ambit on university students of engineering. Form. Univ. [online]. 2012, vol.5, n.5, pp.39-50. ISSN 0718-5006.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-50062012000500005.

The present study analyses the psychometric properties of the self-efficacy scale in the sociocultural ambit on university students of engineering. The total sample comprised 592 participants; 143 female and 449 male students of engineering, with a mean age of 18.5 years. The factor structure of the questionnaire was analyzed through two separate exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis. Psychometric analysis showed that a two-factorial structure was viable and adequate; with appropriate indicators of adjustment, reliability and validity. In addition, factor analysis conducted with subsamples 1 and 2 indicated the presence of strong evidence of factor structure stability, until proven otherwise.

Palabras clave : psychometry; validity of tests; student's beliefs; student's attitudes; psychological tests.
