A Questionnaire for Evaluating Unemployed Adults' Ability to Adapt to Professional Changes: Preliminary Implementation and Psychometric Properties

By Laura Arnau Sabatés

Abstract

El presente artículo desarrolla una primera versión del instrumento Ce-PAC. El análisis de validez interna revela la existencia de tres factores que explican el 56.58% de la varianza y que se corresponden con las dimensiones de las actitudes postuladas teóricamente (cognición, conducta y emociones) y sobre las que se debe incidir si se quiere mejorar la predisposición a actuar. La aplicación del cuestionario, utilizando un diseño pretest-postest, a una muestra de personas desempleadas, demuestra que es posible cambiar su predisposición actitudinal hacia la adaptabilidad, especialmente en aquellas menores de 35 años. === === ABSTRACT === === This article develops an initial version of the instrument Ce-PAC. The internal validity analysis reveals the existence of three factors which explain 56.58% of the variance; which have to do with the dimensions of theoretically-postulated attitudes (cognition, conduct and emotions); and which must be stressed if one wishes to improve the willingness to act. The application of the questionnaire, using a pretest-posttest design, to a sample of the unemployed, shows that it is possible to change the attitudinal predisposition of these persons towards adaptability, especially in those younger than 35 years
