MANAS-RODRIGUEZ, Miguel Ángel; ALCARAZ-PARDO, Luis; PECINO-MEDINA, Vicente  and  LIMBERT, Caroline. Validation of the Spanish version of Soane's ISA Engagement Scale. Rev. psicol. trab. organ. [online]. 2016, vol.32, n.2, pp.87-93. ISSN 2174-0534.

The interest in the study of engagement in the academic field can be seen through the increasing number of results in Google Scholar and in Scopus, going from barely 20 results between 2000 and 2005 to more than 500 in Scopus and more than 1100 in Google Scholar between 2011 and 2015. Soane et al. (2012) propose a unified theoretical framework as the basis of the psychological mechanism of engagement, grounded on the approach of Kahn (1990). The aim of this paper is to analyze the psychometric properties of the Spanish version of the ISA engagement scale in a sample of 477 employees of the administration and services sector in a Spanish public university. Keeping the original design of the English version of the scale, the proposed factorial structure is validated with the good fit of the data according to the revised goodness of fit indices; reliability and the results of the analysis of construct validity.
