NOBILE, Gislaine Gasparin; BARRERA, Sylvia Domingos  and  REBUSTINI, Flávio. Literacy Assessment: Preparation and content validation of IBALEC content. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2021, vol.38, n.117, pp. 333-345. ISSN 0103-8486.

Health professionals often receive children with complaints of learning difficulties, however, in general, they do not have brief instruments to assess the child's lags in relation to reading and writing skills. In this sense, the Instrument for Brief Assessment of Reading, Writing and Understanding (IBALEC) was built, aimed at assessing the performance in basic reading, writing and comprehension skills of students in Cycle I of Elementary School. The objective of this work is to present the structure and content validation process of IBALEC. After its preliminary construction, the instrument was submitted to a panel formed by nine specialists in the area of learning the written language, who evaluated the items of the instrument as to their suitability for the proposed objectives, including aspects such as clarity, organization, objectivity and pertinence. The Content Validity Ratio (CVR) was applied as a validity index for the selection of items, which indicated a critical value of 0.95, being above the expected value (0.77). The following CVR were also obtained: pertinence 0.96; objectivity 0.98; organization 0.98 and clarity 0.95. The indexes obtained suggest the suitability of the instrument for its purposes. It is essential to proceed to the stages of evidence of internal structure and relationship with other variables to increase the reliability of the instrument.
