Abstract

Introduction and objective: Self-concept is an important field of study in Psychology due to the fact that it encompasses an individual's personality. The aim of this work was to standardize the self-concept test form 5 (AF5) for college students aged between 16 and 24 years at Manizales, Caldas, Colombia. Methodology: Our sample comprised 604 students of the Universities of Caldas and Manizales. Validity was analyzed by expert judgment; the content validity by using principal components factor analysis with rotation oblimin Kaiser and maximum number of interactions for convergence 25. The concurrent validity was treated by the Spearman correlation coefficient. Cronbach's alpha coefficient was used to measure the internal consistency; in terms of consistency related to the time of application, the hit ratio of a group of 50 students was measured, which were administered the test again 4 months after its first application. Results: The 5-dimensional model proposed by the authors of the self-concept test was confirmed, and so were the psychometric properties of the test. Conclusions: Further progress is required in the study of the cultural relevance of the items involved in the social and family dimensions of each of these dimensions.
