CRISPIM, Ana Carla; CRUZ, Roberto Moraes; OLIVEIRA, Cassandra Melo  y  ARCHER, Aline Battisti. Core affect and the circumplex approach: Evidence for construct validity. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.2, pp. 145-152. ISSN 1677-0471.

Core affect is a feeling of pleasure or displeasure that varies in terms of activation, and it is constantly experienced by people. The aim of this study was to verify the validity and reliability evidence of a measurement instrument to assess core affect in a population of athletes. The sample was composed of 330 athletes (87.6% are male), with a mean age of 21.8 years (SD=5.36). The measurement instrument used for data collection included 26 pairs of adjectives based on a circumplex representing a possible model for core affect. Data analysis was performed using descriptive statistics, factor analysis, and Cronbach's alpha. Moreover, partial validity evidence was found for a 3-factor solution. In conclusion, further studies are recommended to search for evidence of validity and precision regarding core affect in the Brazilian population.
