FLORES, Francisco J; PEINADO, Jesús E; ORNELAS, Martha  y  LOPEZ, Lepoldo. Factor Structure of a Self-Efficacy Questionnaire in Health Care Behavior in Engineering Students. Form. Univ. [online]. 2012, vol.5, n.3, pp.43-54. ISSN 0718-5006.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-50062012000300006.

The present study analyses the psychometric properties of a self-efficacy questionnaire behavior of health care. The total sample comprised 592 participants; 143 women and 449 men, all of them freshmen at Universidad Autónoma de Chihuahua in Mexico in the area of engineering, with a mean age of 18.16 years. Psychometric analysis showed that a four-factorial structure is feasible and adequate according to the established psychometric requirements. The factor structure of the questionnaire was analyzed using confirmatory factor analysis. The structure of the four factors, following statistical criteria, showed adequate fitting indicators, reliability and validity. In addition, factor analysis conducted with subsamples 1 and 2 indicated the presence of strong evidence of factor structure stability.
