Abstract: The goals of this research were to translate and analyze the psychometric properties of the Learning Climate Questionnaire (LCQ) and to develop a short form. The LCQ is a 15-item self-report measure that assesses autonomy support in educational settings. A total of 422 students (60 men and 362 women) took part in this study. Results showed evidence of construct validity and adequate reliability for the LCQ. The short form consists of five items that showed sound psychometric properties. Results of Pearson correlation and Gower index showed high agreement between the long and short forms. In conclusion, both forms can be considered as preliminary versions of the original questionnaire to assess autonomy support in educational settings.
Los objetivos de este trabajo fueron traducir al español, analizar las propiedades psicométricas del Learning Climate Questionnaire (LCQ) y desarrollar una forma corta. El LCQ es un cuestionario de 15 items que evalúa el apoyo a la autonomía en el contexto educativo. Los participantes fueron 422 estudiantes (60 hombres y 362 mujeres). Los resultados mostraron evidencias de validez de constructo y una fiabilidad adecuada. La forma corta del LCQ que consta de cinco items mostró adecuadas propiedades psicométricas. Los resultados de la correlación de Pearson y del índice Gower mostraron una alta concordancia entre las formas larga y corta. En conclusión, ambas formas pueden ser consideradas como versiones preliminares del cuestionario original para evaluar el apoyo a la autonomía en el contexto educativo.
