En este estudio se ha desarrollado un cuestionario de agresividad proactiva/reactiva en castellano para niños. Debido a las dificultades para administrar autoinformes en niños, dicho cuestionario se diseñó para ser rellenado por sus profesores. Para ello se partió de distintos cuestionarios en lengua inglesa y mediante criterio de jueces se seleccionaron 8 ítems. El análisis factorial exploratorio realizado sobre una muestra de 267 niños mostró la existencia de dos factores, uno correspondiente a la agresividad proactiva y otro a la reactiva formado por cuatro ítems cada uno. Ambas escalas presentaron una elevada fiabilidad y se relacionaron con un criterio externo, en este caso el rendimiento académico.

Development of the proactive/reactive questionnaire for teachers: factor structure and psychometric properties. The main purpose of this study was to develop a proactive/reactive aggression questionnaire for children in Spanish, reported by teachers. To develop the questionnaire, we selected eight items from the most widely used questionnaires in English using the criteria of a group of experts. Exploratory factor analysis on a sample of 267 children yielded two dimensions, one of proactive and the other of reactive aggression, consisting of four items each. Both scales showed good reliability and were related to an external criterion such as academic performance.
