MONTEIRO, Marcia Cristina  and  SOARES, Adriana Benevides. Adaptation and validation of the Self-monitoring Scale for Brazilian Portuguese. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.2, pp. 169-175. ISSN 1677-0471.

This study aimed to adapt and validate the Self-Monitoring Scale. The sample consisted of 200 college students, 50% coming from private Higher Education Institutions and 50% from public ones. Data collection occurred in these places. The instrument used was a revised version of a Self-Monitoring Scale. The exploratory factor analysis indicated the extraction of two factors and the exclusion of eight items. Despite the scale's reliability, the results cannot be generalized to a wider audience than the one formed by college students. In addition, some items showed few significant values of correlation. Thus, future research could investigate the structure obtained for this range and determine if no significant changes when replicated in other samples.

Keywords : self-monitoring; self-regulation; interaction.
