Resumen

PALMA LUENGO, Maritza et al. Adaptation and validation of the Critical Thinking Tasks test in university students. Rev. estud. exp. educ. [online]. 2021, vol.20, n.42, pp.199-212. ISSN 0718-5162.  http://dx.doi.org/10.21703/rexe.20212042palma12.

There is an urgent need worldwide for an updated and comprehensive university-level critical thinking assessment tool. This paper reports on the adaptation and validation of an instrument to assess critical thinking in scientific knowledge tasks, developed by a State University, in a sample of 161 university students. The psychometric quality of the items, their reliability and their factorial organization were evaluated. An exploratory factor analysis (AFE) was performed to determine the existence of dimensions, assessing internal consistency and construct validity using Cronbach's alpha, and correlation between the items and the global scale. The AFE indicated three dimensions of the questionnaire, the internal consistency obtained an α = .67 and the correlation between the sum of the scale and the items, was shown with medium and significant strength (between r = .30 and r = .60; p < 0.001). It is concluded that the adaptation of the test has an adequate internal consistency, although somewhat below the ideal; the factorial structure of three variables is maintained, which are the ones that sustain the construct theoretically.

Palabras clave : Critical thinking; psychometric properties; evaluation; university training.
