The psychometric properties of the d2 Selective Attention Test are analyzed in two samples of premature (n= 63) and born-at-term (n= 78) children. The reliability coefficients (internal consistency) reached values of around .90. Principal components analysis revealed a three-factor structure, which accounts for 58% of the variance, and thus coincides with the number of factors presented in the manual of the Spanish adaptation of the test but not with their composition. Results suggest that the d2 test has adequate psychometric properties both for the global sample and for each sub-sample.

Características psicométricas del test de atención selectiva d2 en niños prematuros y nacidos a término. Se analizan las propiedades ricas del test de atención selectiva «d2» en dos grupos de niños: prematuros (n= 63) y nacidos a término (n=78). Los coeficientes de fiabilidad, calculados por métodos de consistencia interna, se han situado en valores en torno a 0,90. El análisis de componentes principales ha mostrado una estructura de tres factores explicando el 58% de la varianza, coincidiendo con el número de factores presentados en el manual de la adaptación española de la prueba pero no en cuanto a la composición de los mismos. Se concluye que la prueba d2 tiene un comportamiento psicométricamente adecuado tanto para el grupo global como para cada una de las submuestras empleadas.
