LATORRE-ROMAN, Pedro A.; CAMARA-PEREZ, José C.; PANTOJA-VALLEJO, Antonio  and  IZQUIERDO-RUS, Tomás. Psychoeducational factors that determine the propensity to school sports accidents: design and validation of an assessment questionnaire. Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2013, vol.29, n.2, pp.462-469. ISSN 1695-2294.

The purpose of this study has been the design and validation of a propensity scale of sports injuries in schools. The sample for the study has been formed of 254 children (M = 14.20, DT = 1.3). Psychometric properties of the scale were obtained through a process of content validity and a factorial analysis of main components. As a result, we obtained a questionnaire of 27 items consisting of 5 factors and adjusted to validity topics and scientific reliability. Significant differences were found in all factors of the scale in relation to sex, whilst significant differences were only observed in relation to the sensation seeking factor when considering the age of the subjects. This scale is an essential tool for preventing accidents and injuries in school sport by allowing the identification of sports accident-prone students.

Keywords : Psychoeducational factors; children; sports accident; validation.
