ZALAZAR-JAIME, Mauricio Federico; CUPANI, Marcos  e  AZPILICUETA, Ana Estefania. Adaptation of three contextual variables in argentine university students. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.4, pp. 436-443. ISSN 1677-0471.

One of the difficulties presented by studies aimed at identifying the causes of university failure is the lack of consideration of social/contextual variables that, as literature has shown, are related to the process of career progression. To evaluate these variables, the first step is the adaptation of tests that allow their measurement. The purpose of this study was to adapt the Openness to Diversity, Perception of Prejudice and Discrimination, and Academic Experiences scales. This study involved 1,295 students attending different colleges at the National University of Cordoba (Argentina). The results indicated satisfactory values of internal consistency (ρ> .80) and it was possible to replicate the internal structure of each instrument through a confirmatory factor analysis. The validity study indicated that the correlations observed between the different scales were as expected at the theoretical level. The limitations are highlighted and new lines of study are suggested.

Palavras-chave : adaptation; openness to diversity; perception of prejudice and discrimination; academic experiences; university students.
