BANDEIRA, Patrícia Bock et al. Adaptation and Validity Evidences of the Kaleidoscope Career Parameters Scale. Rev. bras. orientac. prof [online]. 2019, vol.20, n.1, pp. 103-114. ISSN 1984-7270.

The Kaleidoscopic Career Model describes how individuals alter the design of their careers and make professional decisions according to the parameters of Authenticity, Balance and Challenge. This study aimed to adapt and present validity evidence of the Kaleidoscopic Career Parameter Scale in a sample of 272 Brazilian professionals, using the procedure of confirmatory factorial analysis, with a maximum likelihood estimation method. The final version of the instrument presented 19 items, distributed in the predicted factors, with the omega reliability indicators: Authenticity (ω =, 66), Balance (ω =, 78) and Growth (ω =, 79). Finally, the results were compared according to the sociodemographic characteristics of the participants, reinforcing the possibility of applying the theory for career counseling.
