RUIZ-JUAN, Francisco. Psychometric properties of the Spanish version of the Achievement Goals Questionnaire. Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.30, n.2, pp.745-755. ISSN 1695-2294.

In this instrumental paper, the aim was the adaptation and testing of the psychometric properties of the Achievement Goals Questionnaire (AGQ) in Spanish. To this end, we conducted two independent studies. The aim of the first was to present the first preliminary psychometric data (pilot sample of 247 students). Explained the process of translation, adaptation and content validity of items, we carried out a statistical analysis of these, an exploration of dimensional structure and analysis of the reliability of the instrument. In the second study (sample of 2168 students), the aim was to analyze the internal structure of the instrument with confirmatory procedures in three Spanish-speaking countries: Spain, Mexico, and Costa Rica. The Spanish version of the AGQ showed acceptable levels of internal consistency, temporal stability, correlation score between the items and the total score in each of the components. We also provides evidences of construct validity. Sex differences were obtained. These findings support the use of the Spanish version of the AGQ to assess achievement goal orientations with students in physical education classes.
