ORTIZ-BARRADAS, Abraham Manuel. Design and Validation of a Scale for Propaedeutic Interests in Mexico. RIDE. Rev. Iberoam. Investig. Desarro. Educ [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.19, e024.  Epub May 15, 2020. ISSN 2007-7467.

Having the objective of designing and validating a Likert-type scale to the propaedeutic interest valuation of the high school diploma students in México, a study was brought about involving 56 volunteers. In order to run this test three groups have been put together. The first one, chosen with the purpose of establishing the expert’s discernment, was compounded by six education professionals with experience in vocational orientation and evaluation; the second one was integrated by 10 students leading to a pilot testing end, and the third group was constituted by 40 high school diploma students with the purpose of obtaining the study outcomes. The applied scale was built on a study program guideline basis stated on the documents published by Secretaría de Educación Pública (SEP) in force up to 2017. The outcomes were analyzed through statistics programs where a Cronbach’s alpha at a rate of 0.870 is suggested. This indicates a consistency and stability scale trustworthy index.
