FREITAS, Ivanaldo Martins de  and  SILVA, Gustavo Henrique Gonçalves e. Assessment Instruments in Sport Psychology with Evidence of Validity in Brazil. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.spe, pp. 1-14. ISSN 1983-8220.

Sport Psychology has gained prominence in the construction of Psychology as a science and profession in Brazil. However, the Federal Council of Psychology has not approved any measures for professional use, causing professionals to use tests with no validity and reliability. Thus, this study aimed to identify sports assessment instruments with evidence of validity in Brazil. For such purpose, an integrative review was performed, with a survey in the BVS-Psi, using the descriptors: psychometry AND sport. It was identified 39 productions that passed the following inclusion criteria: empirical article, publication between 2009-2019, text in Portuguese, complete available and Brazilian sample; and exclusion: duplicity and study without adaptation/validation objective. Seven productions were selected, which allowed to identify measures of motivation, self-efficacy, affectivity, fulfillment of needs and satisfaction with life. The instruments, although not approved for professional use by the Federal Council of Psychology, have validity indicators for Brazil.

Keywords : Sport Psychology; Psychometry; Psychological assessment.
