WAGNER, Gabriela Peretti; CAMEY, Suzi Alves; PARENTE, Maria Alice de Mattos Pimenta  and  TRENTINI, Clarissa Marceli. Adaptation of the Cognitive Estimation Test (CET) to brazilian portuguese. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.14, n.2, pp. 213-221. ISSN 1677-0471.

Cognitive estimation is an ability that involves searching for non-readily-available answers, requiring reasoning and problemsolving processes in order to find a response alternative. This ability can be investigated with the Cognitive Estimation Test (CET). The test exists in an English version and requires adaptations to be used in different languages. The aim of the present study was to adapt the CET to Brazilian Portuguese. The CET was translated from the original version in British English, then its items were submitted to theoretical and empirical analysis. The pilot study generated a 28-item scale with levels of internal consistency of 0.50 (Cronbach’s Alpha), 0.58 (split half), and 0.73 (Guttmann). The test defined during the pilot study was then tested in a new sample, producing internal consistency values of 0.57 (Cronbach’s Alpha), 0.60 (split half), and 0.74 (Guttman). A final version of the CET was produced and is now available in Brazilian Portuguese
