La evaluación del afrontamiento es objeto de controversia, no habiendo al día de hoy consenso sobre su dimensionalidad. Se presenta una versión abreviada para adolescentes y universitarios del Coping Responses Inventory-Youth Form de Moos. El estudio psicométrico realizado con 1.160 estudiantes argentinos incluyó: a) estadísticos descriptivos, b) análisis factorial confirmatorio, y c) estudio de consistencia interna. Se compararon tres modelos (unifactorial, bifactorial y tetrafactorial) en dos submuestras aleatorias y en 500 submuestras diferentes obtenidas mediante un procedimiento de Bootstrap. Además se establecieron sucesivos modelos anidados con restricciones progresivas en submuestras segmentadas por sexo y edad. Los resultados indican un mejor ajuste del modelo tetrafactorial, así como su estabilidad en distintos grupos.

Dimensionality of the Coping Inventory for adolescents and college students. Assessing coping has been a controversial subject and to this day, there is no consensus about its dimensionality. A short version for adolescents and college students of Moos’ Coping Responses Inventory-Youth Form is presented. Psychometric analyses performed with 1,160 Argentinean students included: a) descriptive statistics, b) confirmatory factor analysis, and c) internal consistency. Three models (1-factor, 2-factor and 4-factor) were compared in two randomized samples, and by a bootstrap procedure carried out in 500 different samples. Nested models with progressive restrictions were also established successively in samples split by sex and age. Results indicated a better fit of the 4-factor model as well as its stability across different groups.
