FERREIRA, Maria Cristina et al. The core self-evaluations scale: psychometric characteristics in Brazilian samples. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2013, vol.12, n.2, pp. 227-232. ISSN 1677-0471.

The present research aimed to find validity and reliability evidences of the Core Self-Evaluations Scale in Brazilian samples. The participants were 393 employees from both genders, which answered to the Core Self-Evaluation Scale, to an Emotional Exhaustion Scale and to a Job Satisfaction Scale. Factor analysis results showed that the Core Self-Evaluations Scale presented a one-dimensional structure, as well as an adequate internal consistency. Otherwise, the correlations between the three scales used in the study revealed that positive and significant correlations between core self-evaluations and job satisfaction and negative and significant correlations between core self-evaluations and emotional exhaustion were obtained. It was concluded that the Core Self-Evaluation Scale has good psychometric properties and can be used in situations of diagnostics and research in the organizational context.

Keywords : core self-evaluations; self-esteem; self-efficacy; locus of control; emotional stability.
