MARINHO-ARAUJO, Claisy Maria et al. Adaptation of the Academic Expectation Scale of Freshman University Students. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.14, n.1, pp. 133-141. ISSN 1677-0471.

The purpose of this study was to adapt and to obtain evidence of validity of a Portuguese scale of academic expectations of freshmen university students, for the Brazilian context, identifying factors associated with students’ academic participation and involvement. Three hundred and thirty-nine university students participated in the research. The Brazilian version of the instrument consisted of 62 items to be answered in a 6-point scale varying from totally disagree to totally agree. The factor analysis generated seven factors: Academic Training of Quality, Social and Academic Commitment, Extension of Interpersonal Relationships, Opportunity for Students’ Interchanges and Internationalization, Professional Success and Perspectives, Self-image Concerns, and Development of Transversal Competencies. The alpha reliability indices ranged from .71 to .90. The results indicated that the scale is useful for evaluating expectations of 1st year students, and may subsidize higher education institutions concerning the review of pedagogical curricula of undergraduate courses, the development of programs and support services for students
