Revisión sistemática de instrumentos de actitudes hacia la ciencia (2004-2016)

Radu Bogdan Toma

Resumen

Se realiza una revisión sistemática de las propiedades psicométricas que poseen 15 instrumentos de actitudes hacia la ciencia publicados entre los años 2004 y 2016, identificados en las bases de datos Web of Science Core Collection y Science Direct siguiendo los criterios PRISMA. En conjunto, los resultados revelan que la calidad de la mayoría de los instrumentos actuales sigue siendo preocupante dada la ausencia casi generalizada de adopción de un marco teórico para el desarrollo de los ítems y debido a un deficiente e inadecuado análisis de sus propiedades psicométricas. Estos hallazgos cuestionan la validez y fiabilidad de los instrumentos analizados y ponen de manifiesto la necesidad de adoptar diseños metodológicos más rigurosos para el desarrollo de instrumentos de actitudes hacia la ciencia.
