GONCALVES NETO, João Moreira  e  BORGES-ANDRADE, Jairo Eduardo. Scale of Perceived Overqualification: Adaptation and Validity Evidences. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2018, vol.23, n.3, pp. 224-235. ISSN 1413-294X.

Perceived overqualification is the situation in which an individual perceives that they have qualification higher than that required by their job. Such situation has been found related to negative attitudes and undesirable behaviors at work context. In Brazil, there are no instruments for measuring perceived overqualification. This study aimed to adapt a scale of perceived overqualification and to analyze for its validity evidences of. The scale was translated and back-translated, and applied to 222 workers. Exploratory factor analysis found a hierarchical solution (two first-order factors and one second-order factor). Confirmatory factor analysis, in a sample of 265 workers, supported the hierarchical solution, although with poor fit. The Brazilian version showed validity and reliability evidences for measuring perceived overqualification. Other studies were suggested in order to test the factor structure in other samples.
