OLIVEIRA-SILVA, Lígia Carolina  and  PORTO, Juliana Barreiros. Goal Achievement at Work Scale: Adaptation and validity evidence. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.1, pp. 1-10. ISSN 1677-0471.

This study aimed to translate, adapt and identify validity evidence for the 2×2 Framework of Goal Achievement at Work Scale. Participants comprised of 358 workers who responded to the 23-item instrument. Results from confirmatory factor analyses indicated that the 18-item scale presented better model fit than the four-factor model (mastery approach, mastery avoidance, performance approach, performance avoidance), which is consistent with previous studies. Model fit indices were: CMIN/DF=2.12; SRMR=0.06; GFI=0.92; CFI=0.90; RMSEA=0.05. The instrument presents appropriate indices for use in research on the topic and permits analysis of the different forms in which workers seek to achieve goals and which goal orientation permeates their actions at work
