Invariância de medida e evidências de validade externa da Peer Aggressive Behavior Scale (PAB-S)

Juliane Callegaro Borsa, Diogo Araujo DeSousa

Resumo


Os comportamentos agressivos são comuns na infância, o que exige o uso de instrumentos adequados para mensurá-los. O objetivo deste estudo foi testar a invariância de medida da Peer Aggressive Behavior Scale (PAB-S) e investigar evidências de validade baseadas na relação com variáveis externas. Participaram 237 cuidadores (M = 38,5; DP = 7,02; 70,6% mães) e 1.370 crianças,
com idades entre 7 e 13 anos (M = 9,87; DP = 1,28; 53,1% meninas), estudantes de escolas de ensino fundamental de três estados brasileiros. A Análise Fatorial Confirmatória Multigrupo demonstrou invariância configural escalar e métrica da PAB-S. Já a Modelagem de Equações Estruturais indicou evidências de validade concorrente e convergente. Os resultados apontam para as adequadas propriedades psicométricas da PAB-S, sugerindo sua adequação para uso no contexto brasileiro. Novos estudos deverão ser conduzidos para agregar outras evidências de validade e confiabilidade da PAB-S.
