Adaptation of Will-to-Work Questionnaire to a sample of Spanish undergraduate students
AbstractThe aim of the present study was to assess the psychometric properties of the Will-to-work scale both in its self-reported and peer forms in a sample of Spanish undergraduate students. Participants of this study were 194 students from the University of Barcelona, who completed the following questionnaires: Will-to-work scale (WW), peer Will-to-work scale (PWW), and the Perseverance and Distortion subscales from the Big Factor Questionnaire. Results of this study suggested the need of deleting two of the items from the WW and PWW. Adequate item-total correlations were found, as well as acceptable values of internal consistency coefficients in both scales. The confirmatory factor analysis confirmed the one-factor structure of both scales. Relationships between WW and other criteria measures were also adequate. Finally, we can conclude that WW and PWW questionnaires obtained adequate psychometric properties after considering their refinement.
