Through Rasch-Masters Partial Credit Mode it was described the item parameters and participants’ characteristics (difficulty levels/theta and adjustment indices infit/outfit), as well as the item parameters invariance according to the participants gender, which demonstrated the instrument suitability for evaluation of the construct in the matter.
