VALENZUELA URRA, Cristián; VALDENEGRO EGOZCUE, Boris; OLIVEROS CASTRO, Sergio  and  ALVARADO, Marlene. Adaptación del Information Competency Assessment Instrument y su aplicación a estudiantes de pregrado de las universidades de Magallanes y Playa Ancha. Palabra clave [online]. 2021, vol.10, n.2, pp.128-128. ISSN 1853-9912.

This article analyses the adaptation, application, behavior and analysis of psychometric qualities of the information competency assessment instrument (ICAI), developed by Rodney Marshall of Eastern Illinois University (2006), through the application on a stratified sample of students (n = 381) of the upper levels of the University of Playa Ancha and the University of Magallanes. Due to the low internal consistency of the original instrument, an exploratory factor analysis was developed to determine the emergent structure from the application, performing an analysis of the confirmatory coefficient to weight the adjustment level of the new emergent structure. The results propose an instrument to measure informational competences in Chilean university students composed of 27 items and a distribution of five elements emerging, showing adequate levels of reliability (except for one of the subscales) and absolute, incremental and parsimony adjustment. Although the factorial structure differs from that proposed by the author, it is considered to be a recommendable instrument for the evaluation of informational competences in Chilean university students.

Keywords : Informational competences assessment; Competency assessment instruments; Informational competences; University Students; Chile.
