ACUNA, Ignacio; MICHELINI, Yanina; GUZMAN, Juan Ignacio  y  GODOY, Juan Carlos. Assessment of convergent and discriminant validity in computerized decision-making tests. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.3, pp. 375-383. ISSN 1677-0471.

The objective of this study was to analyze the convergent and discriminant validity between impulsivity, executive functioning, and decision-making (DM) tests with and without emotional component and with agent-centered DM. Through an Instrumental design, 217 participants were evaluated, 64.5% women, between 18 and 30 years of age (M = 23.22 ± 2.44). The Principal Component Analysis showed four components that explained 83.88% of variance and grouped the tests as expected. In addition, the correlation study shows that the true DM tests were poorly correlated, suggesting partial convergence between them. No significant correlations were found between true DM testing and DM testing with agent focus, executive function and impulsivity. The results coincide with expectations and previous studies on the subject.
