AMBIEL, Rodolfo A. M.. Development of the Reasons for Higher Education Dropout Scale. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.14, n.1, pp. 41-52. ISSN 1677-0471.

The aim of this study is to report the construction and validation of the items and the internal structure of the Reasons for Higher Education Dropout Scale. The wording of the items was based on Brazilian papers, retrieved from digital databases, as well as the experiences of active and inactive higher education students. The items were evaluated by judges, who suggested writing changes and additions, and the first version had 81 items which were completed by 327 students from public and private institutions. Based on parallel analysis, seven principal components were extracted with alphas between .79 and .93. Then, the items were analyzed according to the Rasch model, and one item fit indices showed nonstandard, and was also excluded, leaving 65 items. The results are discussed in the light of studies on the subject, and highlighted its contributions, limitations and future research is needed.
