CASSONI, Cynthia; ELIAS, Luciana Carla dos Santos; MARTURANO, Edna Maria  e  FONTAINE, Anne Marie. Analysis of the psychometric properties of the Parental Monitoring Questionnaire. Aval. psicol. [online]. 2019, vol.18, n.3, pp.248-255. ISSN 1677-0471.

Parental monitoring has been associated with academic performance, social competence, self-esteem, and adjustment in children and adolescents. The objective of the study was to study the psychometric properties of the Parental Monitoring Questionnaire (PMQ). In a prospective study performed in public schools, with students of the 5th (n = 415) and the 6th years (n = 379), the PMQ, the Brazil Test, the Self-Concept Assessment Questionnaire and the Multidimensional Life Satisfaction Scale for Children were applied, with two collections. Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) were carried out to evaluate the fit of the structural model. The EFA indicated two factors, paternal monitoring and maternal monitoring, confirmed in the CFA, with acceptable indicators of internal consistency and stability. The PMQ was associated with performance in Portuguese, self-concept and satisfaction with life, particularly regarding the family. Preliminary evidence of instrument reliability and associations suggestive of predictive validity justify further research to validate the PMQ.
