AUDIBERT, Alyane  y  TEIXEIRA, Marco Antônio Pereira. Career adapt-abilities scale: evidences of validity in brazilian university students. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2015, vol.16, n.1, pp. 83-93. ISSN 1679-3390.

This study aimed to review the Brazilian version of the Career Adapt-Abilities Scale (CAAS) obtaining validity and reliability evidences for it. The scale has four dimensions: concern, control, curiosity and confidence. Nine hundred and ninety college students participated in the study (64.2% women), with an age mean of 25.8 years old. The instruments used in this study were a sociodemographic questionnaire and the CAAS. Data were collected both online and on a face-to-face basis. As expected, confirmatory factorial analysis results indicated a satisfactory adjustment for a hierarchical model with four factors (and with one factor of second order). Reliability indices were also appropriate. Limitations of the study are discussed and possibilities for future investigations are suggested.

Palabras clave : career adaptability; career counseling; psychological assessment; university students.
