BALBINOTTI, Marcos Alencar Abaide  and  TETREAU, Bernard. Career education questionnaire: psychometric properties of the brazilian version and cross-cultural comparison. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2006, vol.7, n.2, pp. 49-66. ISSN 1984-7270.

The purpose of this study was to present some psychometric properties of the Brazilian version of the Career Education Questionnaire, and to compare the results with those for the Canadian and Spanish versions. The study with a Brazilian sample of 890 high school students (391 male and 499 female) was used to establish the psychometric properties of this version. Results of item analysis, inter-scale correlations, and exploratory factorial structure obtained from that sample strongly corroborated the results obtained from the Quebec and Spanish samples. Future studies are needed to create norms for clinical use of this version in Brazil.

Keywords : Career education; Psychometric properties; Questionnaire; Adolescents.
