MARTINS, Lara Barros; ZERBINI, Thaís  and  MEDINA, Francisco José. Course reaction scale in e-learning: adaptation and factor structure. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2018, vol.20, n.1, pp. 223-234. ISSN 1516-3687.

This paper aims to adapt and analyze the factor structure and psychometric properties of the Reaction to Instructional Proceedings Scale in Distance Education (ERPI-EAD) and its relation with the effectiveness of training at work. In total, 3,600 employees from a Brazilian public bank participated in this study by answering the ERPI-EAD after taking part in an online course. We measured training transfer with a self-evaluation scale. Internal consistency, confirmatory factor analysis, and multiple regressions were conducted. A one-factor structure and a high level of fit for the model were found. The participants' satisfaction with the course was related to the effectiveness of training. We suggest using the ERPI-EAD as a reliable and valid measure that predicts the effectiveness of training, can contribute to collect relevant information to improve instructional aspects and ensure better performance results in the workplace.

Keywords : distance education; evaluation; satisfaction; scale; effectiveness of training.
