ANTUNES, Ana Pereira; MORAIS, Maria de Fátima  e  MARTINS, Fernanda. Inventory of psychological characteristics associated with academic performance: university student validation. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.4, pp. 387-396. ISSN 1677-0471.

This study aimed to adapt and validate a self-report questionnaire to study students of academic merit for a Portuguese population. The Inventory of Psychological Characteristics Associated with Academic Performance was originally developed by Dutch researchers. The sample consisted of 1,366 students (771 women, 597 men) in their first semester of their higher education in Portugal, belonging to three areas of study: Science and Technology, Social and Human Sciences, and Arts and Humanities. Exploratory factor analysis pointed to a six-factor structure related to the dimensions: Cognitive-Creative, Motivation and Learning Strategies, Persistence, Social Interaction, Search for Excellence, and Cultural Interest. Fidelity indexes (Cronbach's alpha) for each of these dimensions are adequate. The results are discussed and guidelines are presented for future studies.
