This study aimed to evaluate construct validity and reliability of the Escala de Auto-eficácia para Escolha Profissional (EAE-EP; Professional Choice Self-efficacy Scale). The participants were 223 high school students from a São Paulo state public school, with average age from 14 to 18 years-old (M=15,6 years old; SD=0,95), and 112 (50,2%) were women. The instruments used were EAE-EP and Inventário de Levantamento das Dificuldades de Decisão Profissional (IDDP; Decision Difficulties Inventory), and the results indicated that the EAE-EP general score negatively correlated with two IDDP factor, Lack of information (r=-0,15; p<0,05) and Inconsistent information (r=-0,20; p<0,05), while the EAE-EP Difficulty Level Section was positively correlated with the same factors, with r=0,28; p=0,000 e r=0,15; p<0,05. Reliability was measured by Cronbach's Alpha, and the coefficient was 0,96. These preliminary results indicated that other studies with the EAE-EP must be encouraged, looking for its full development.
