GODOY, Maria Tereza Tomé de  e  MENDONCA, Helenides. Adaptive competence inventory: adaptation and evidence of validity with brazilian workers. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2020, vol.20, n.1, pp. 906-913. ISSN 1984-6657.

Adaptive competence is the ability of the worker to develop new knowledge and skills from the ones they already have, achieving efficient results with high performance in new and unknown situations. The purpose of this paper was to adapt and analyze the evidence of the validity of internal structure, convergent validity, and internal consistency of the adaptive competence inventory (ACI) with Brazilian workers. The empirical research was carried out with 383 Brazilian workers from all regions of the country, from various branches of activity. In the confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), the results were tested in 4 models and the proposed structure of 4 dimensions and 14 items presented the best indices of fit. The convergent validity of the ACI with self-determination was assessed. In the discriminant validity, the ACI showed a positive and significant correlation with the level of education of the participants. The statistical analysis carried out allows us to substantiate the validity of the ACI with Brazilian workers and to present a diagnostic tool for adaptive competence.
