ETCHEZAHAR, Edgardo; CERVONE, Nélida; BIGLIERI, Jorge  and  QUATTROCCHI, Paula. Adaptation and validation of the reduced version of the right  wing authoritarianism scale (RWA) in argentinean context. Anu. investig. [online]. 2011, vol.18, pp.237-242. ISSN 1851-1686.

This paper presents an adaptation and validation of a shortened version of right-wing authoritarianism scale (RWA) to the argentinian context. Were conducted three studies (n =1273), with samples of university students. The reduced scale showed a reliability of α = 0.74, showing good it indices in conirmatory factorial analysis. The validity of the scale is observed through its relationships with other constructs tested, including the social dominance orientation, the ideological self-positioning, religiosity, interest in politics and the big ive personality factors. We concluded in a small tool for evaluation of right-wing authoritarianism in the argentinian context, valid and reliable.

Keywords : Right-Wing Authoritarianism; RWA; Reliability; Validity; Social dominance orientation.
