Necesidad de evaluación: Propuesta para su medición en castellano

Universidad Autónoma de Madrid y * Universidad a Distancia de Madrid

Las personas juzgamos los objetos de nuestro entorno en términos evaluativos (bueno-malo); pero algunas están más motivadas que otras para hacerlo. La Necesidad de Evaluación (NE) se refiere a estas diferencias individuales. Para su medición, Jarvis y Petty desarrollaron el test de Necesidad de Evaluación. El objetivo de la presente investigación ha sido adaptar al castellano este test y examinar su fiabilidad y validez. En el primer estudio se comprobó que la adaptación del test mostraba una buena consistencia interna y una adecuada validez factorial. En el estudio 2 se analizó la fiabilidad temporal y la validez discriminante del test, encontrándose que la NE correlacionó moderadamente con la Necesidad de Cognición y la Necesidad de Cierre y no mostró una relación significativa con la Deseabilidad Social.

Need to evaluate: An assessment proposal in Spanish. Everybody evaluates objects in terms of good and bad. Besides this general tendency, some individuals are more motivated than others to make evaluative judgments. Individual differences in this need to evaluate can be reliably assessed with the Need to Evaluate (NE) Scale development by Jarvis and Petty. The purpose of the present work was to adapt the NE test to Spanish, and to assess its psychometric properties of reliability and validity . The first study revealed that the Spanish version of the NE test had a good internal consistency. A second study confirmed that the test also showed good properties in terms of discriminant validity. The NE correlated moderately with Need for Cognition and Need for Closure, and but not with Social Desirability.
