SALESSI, Solana  and  OMAR, Alicia. Work-related flow inventory: internal structure and criterion validity evidence. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.17, n.3, pp. 378-388. ISSN 1677-0471.

The objective of this study was to adapt and validate the Work-related Flow Inventory from Bakker's study in Argentina. A cross-sectional empirical instrument design was used in a non-probabilistic sample of 442 workers (53% women, Mage = 33.5 years, SD = 19.6). Analyses of exploratory structural equations indicated adequacy of a tri-factorial model with 10 invariant items between different occupations. The values of the mean extracted variance and its square root, the heterotrait-monotrait ratio, the ordinal alpha coefficient and the composite reliability coefficient demonstrated adequate convergent-discriminant validity and reliability. Positive correlations with passion, work satisfaction and engagement indicated appropriate concurrent validity. Results show that the Argentine version of the instrument presents adequate psychometric properties.

Keywords : positive organizational psychology; psychometry; statistical validity.
