LOBOS PENA, Karla; DIAZ MUJICA, Alejandro; BUSTOS NAVARRETE, Claudio  and  SAEZ DELGADO, Fabiola. Scale of strategies for stimulating academic self-concept. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.17, n.2, pp. 213-222. ISSN 1677-0471.

The objective of this study was to elaborate and evaluate behavioral psychometrics of a scale for stimulating academic self-concept strategies associated with observable teacher-student interaction behaviors. A total of 819 elementary students from 16 schools with high social vulnerability in the Chilean city of Concepción. The scale was constructed after a theoretical revision, the application of two pilot studies with the students, and an inter-judicial validation. Exploratory analysis results indicate that the final scale, with 15 questions, has a structure of three first-order factors (capacity, work procedures and participation strategies), which explain 66% of the variance, with a factor of second-order with a hierarchical omega of 0.89. This structure is corroborated by a confirmatory factor analysis. Concurrent validity is observed with the school self-esteem subscale of Coopersmith's Self-Esteem Inventory.

Keywords : teacher-student interaction; self-concept; test construction; educational psychology.
