Actitudes hacia la estadística en estudiantes de Ciencias de la Educación. Propiedades psicométicas de la versión española del Survey of Attitudes Toward Statistics (SATS-36)


Resumen


El estudio de las actitudes hacia la estadística es un tópico que ha suscitado el interés de investigadores en diferentes países y niveles de enseñanza. En el trabajo aquí presentado se expone un análisis de las propiedades psicométricas, en términos de validez estructural y consistencia interna, de la aplicación, en el contexto universitario nacional, del conocido Survey of Attitudes Toward Statistics (SATS), en su versión de 36 ítems. Los resultados obtenidos a partir de los 409 participantes, indican falta de ajuste para el modelo de seis factores propuestos por los autores del SATS, sobre todo, en comparación con el modelo de cinco factores con errores corregidos que proponen los autores de este trabajo. Estos resultados coinciden con lo defendido por otras investigaciones en cuanto a la reducción del número de componentes actitudinales medidos con el SATS


Palabras clave


Psicometría; análisis factorial; actitudes de los estudiantes; estadística; universidad
