El objetivo del presente trabajo consistió en obtener una versión adaptada al español del inventario de ansiedad competitiva CSAI-2, revisado recientemente. Se llevó a cabo la traducción de la escala y se estudiaron sus propiedades psicométricas con una muestra de 149 deportistas. Los datos se sometieron a procedimientos de análisis factorial exploratorio y confirmatorio. Como resultado se obtuvo una forma del CSAI-2R con 16 ítems, distribuidos en las tres subescalas hipotetizadas: Ansiedad somática, Ansiedad cognitiva y Autoconfianza. El ajuste del modelo fue satisfactorio, con índices CFI y NNFI de 0.97 y RMSEA igual a 0.045. Los valores de consistencia interna de los factores se situaron entre 0.79 y 0.83. Se concluye que esta versión posee propiedades, en términos de dimensionalidad y de consistencia interna, adecuadas, y se sugieren pautas para trabajos futuros sobre su validez como medida del estado de ansiedad en situaciones de competición.

Psychometric properties of the Spanish version of the Revised Competitive State Anxiety Inventory-2 with athletes. The aim of this work was to develop a Spanish adaptation of the Revised Competitive State Anxiety Inventory-2. The scale was translated and its psychometric properties were analyzed with data from a sample of 149 athletes. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses were performed which supported a 16-item CSAI-2R assessing the three hypothesised dimensions of anxiety: Somatic anxiety, Cognitive anxiety, and Self-confidence. Overall fit of the model was good with a value of .97 for Comparative and Non-Normed Fit Indexes, and .045 for Root Mean Square Error of Approximation. Cronbach alpha coefficients for the factors ranged from .79 to .83. It is concluded that this version shows adequate properties, in terms of its dimensionality and internal consistency. Guidelines are also provided for future research on its validity as a measure of state anxiety in competitive situations.
