RUEDA, Fabián Javier Marín  and  MUNIZ, Monalisa. Evidence of convergent validity of Psychology Battery Tests of Attention - BPA. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2012, vol.3, n.2, pp. 162-181. ISSN 2236-6407.

This article aimed at seeking evidence of convergent validity for the BPA - Bateria Psicológica para Avaliação da Atenção, which evaluates focused, divided and alternating attention. In order to do that, the BPA was administered with Teste de Atenção Concentrada (TEACO-FF), Teste de Atenção Dividida (TEADI) and Teste de Atenção Alternada (TEALT) to 209 subjects, ages between 10 and 64 years old, mostly females (64%). The results show significative and positive correlations, above 0.509 that indicate evidence of convergent validity to BPA.

Keywords : attention assessment; psychological assessment; validity.
