STRELHOW, Miriam Raquel Wachholz  and  SARRIERA, Jorge Castellá. Validity evidence of the duke religion index (P-DUREL) among adolescents. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.17, n.3, pp. 330-338. ISSN 1677-0471.

The purpose of this study was to verify psychometric properties of the Brazilian version of the Duke Religion Index (P-DUREL) among adolescents. Through an online platform, 1,248 Brazilian adolescents of both genders, between 12 and 18 years of age (M = 15.09, SD = 1.77) participated, 57.3% of whom were female. The factorial structure was verified through exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses. The one-dimensional model presented satisfactory fit indexes, as well as adequate reliability (α = 0.874). Multigroup analyses by sex and age indicated that the factorial structure and factorial weights are similar for the groups tested. The scale presented a high positive correlation with the Module "Spirituality, religiousness and personal beliefs" (WHOQOL-SRPB). It is concluded that the instrument is suitable for the evaluation of religiousness among Brazilian adolescents, and may be used in future studies with this population.
