Liliana Pitacho, Patrícia Palma and Pedro Correia publish a new paper in Análise Psicológica
The construction and psychometric study of a Work Orientation Questionnaire was the main theme of a new publication from CAPP researchers in the journal Análise Psicológica.
In this new paper, Liliana Pitacho (CAPP), Patrícia Palma (CAPP) and Pedro Correia (CAPP) set out to create and develop a psychometric study of a work orientation questionnaire. To this end, a qualitative study was carried out with 9 participants to construct the questionnaire. In its final version, the new measure included 38 items divided by three independent scales: calling, career and job. The psychometric study, in turn, counted on 747 respondents, 433 females and 307 males, with an average age of 40.38 years, distributed by different sectors and areas of activity. The authors concluded that the results obtained prove the existence of three independent dimensions, career, job and calling, as well as the internal consistency and unidimensional of the scales presented.
The paper is available on the publication's website.
