SICILIA, Alvaro; FERRIZ, Roberto; TRIGUEROS, Rubén  and  GONZALEZ-CUTRE, David. Spanish Adaptation and Validation of the Physical Activity Class Satisfaction Questionnaire (PACSQ). Univ. Psychol. [online]. 2014, vol.13, n.4, pp.1321-1332. ISSN 1657-9267.

The purpose of this study was to validate the Spanish version of the Physical Activity Class Questionnaire (PACSQ) into the physical education (PE) context. The sample consisted of 858 students, aged between 15 to 21 years, and the psychometric properties of the PACSQ were examined through different analyses. The results supported both the first- order nine -factor model and the higher-order model. The structure of both models was invariant across gender. Correlations among the subscales indicated a related factor model supporting construct validity of the scale. Alpha values over 0.7 and suitable levels of temporal stability were obtained. The findings of this study provided validity evidences for using the PACSQ in a Spanish context.
