ALMEIDA, Leandro S.; SOARES, Ana Paula C.  y  FERREIRA, Joaquim Armando. The Questionário de Vivências Acadêmicas (QVA-r): assessment of the adjustment of university students. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2002, vol.1, n.2, pp. 81-93. ISSN 1677-0471.

The underachievement and dropouts of students in higher education reach preoccupying levels in most developed countries. Therefore, it's important to know their causes and to implement the measures, above all preventive ones, that can reduce the cost individual, familiar and institutional of such situations. This paper presents the construction and procedures of validation of reduced version of Questionário de Vivências Acadêmicas (QVA, Almeida & Ferreira, 1997). The substantial reduction of the number of items in the abbreviated version of the scale (QVA-r; Almeida, Ferreira & Soares, 2001), tries to overcome the inherent difficulties to the administration of an integral version of the questionnaire, formed by 170 items distributed by 17 subscales. This abbreviated version of QVA is formed by 60 items distributed by five dimensions of students´ adaptation: personal, interpersonal, vocational, study-learning, and institutional. Results show adequate psychometric characteristics on internal consistency and validity.
