ESTEFANIA, Caicedo Cavagnis  and  ZALAZAR-JAIME, Mauricio Federico. Cognitive interviews: review, guidelines for use and application in psychological research. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.17, n.3, pp. 362-370. ISSN 1677-0471.

Cognitive interviews are a method of identifying and correcting problems when responding to an item in a questionnaire. The basic idea is to understand why and how a person responds to a question. That is, he provides validity evidence based on the response process. However, there are differences on how these interviews should be developed. Therefore, a guide is presented to clarify the steps that make up this process and facilitate decision-making in its development. It is expected that this guide will be useful to future researchers either in the creation or adaptation of instruments as well as in instances preceding data collection.

Keywords : cognitive interviews; psychological evaluation; application; guide.
