FONSECA, Patrícia Nunes da et al. School Adjustment Scale: fatorial structure and demographic correlates. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.1, pp. 1-11. ISSN 1677-0471.

This study aimed to test the factorial structure of the School Adjustment Scale (SAS) to the Brazilian milieu. Participants were 249 students from public (49%) and private (51%) school from João Pessoa (PB). Most of them were women (54.6%), with ages ranging from 11 to 20 years (m=14.6; sd=2.11). They answered the School Adjustment Scale and demographic questions. Results supported the four-components model (training difficulties, academic difficulties, general school aspects and relationship with teachers and students) for the SAS. A MANOVA analysis indicated difference in the participants' scores in the components II (academic difficulties) and IV (relationship with teachers and students) according to grade and type of school, respectively. In conclusion, the SAS is a psychometrically adequate instrument, being better represented by a four-components model.
