BIENEMANN, Bheatrix  e  DAMASIO, Bruno Figueiredo. Development and validation of an attitude scale in relation to science in psychology. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.16, n.4, pp. 489-497. ISSN 1677-0471.

The history of psychology is marked by a crisis of scientification. In many domains within the field there is indifference and even antipathy related to scientific practice. The present study presents the development and psychometric properties of an Attitude Scale in Relation to Science in Psychology (ASRS-P). The ASRS-P assesses how students and professionals in psychology think, feel and seek to behave in relation to science in psychology. After refinement procedures using exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis techniques, the final scale was composed of 41 items divided into a two-factor structure: Personal Initiative, and Beliefs and Affects, with adequate adjustment indexes. It has been shown that attitudes in relation to science relate to a need for personal development, a need for knowledge, as well as the personality factor Conscientiousness. Initial evidence suggests adequacy of the ASRS-P for use in the Brazilian context.
