STOCKER, Joana  e  FARIA, Luísa. Perceived competence in secondary school: From concept to evaluation through a composite questionnaire. Psicologia [online]. 2012, vol.26, n.2, pp.113-140. ISSN 0874-2049.

Perceived competence in the academic achievement domain is described as students’ judgments on their personal capacities and competences that influence their own motivation and achievement. This construct will be analysed in the scope of a comprehensive conceptual model that integrates different motivational dimensions: personal conceptions of intelligence, causal dimensions, academic self­‑concept and self­‑efficacy and emotional competence, together with a new composite evaluation measure with 162 items, the Perceived Competence Composite Questionnaire (PCCQ). The construction and adjustment phases - pilot study with 385 students and validation study with 1794 students, all from secondary -, and the results of psychometric analyses with PCCQ will be presented. PCCQ extracted 44% of total variance, revealed alphas between .73 and .94, positive correlations between the majority of its dimensions, and an acceptable local and global adjustment, after re­‑specification of the structural model that better represents empirical data.

Palavras-chave : perceived competence; academic motivation; academic achievement; secondary education; structural equation modeling.
