Development and Psychometric Evaluation of the Scale of Attitudes toward Social Justice in Education (EAJSE)
This paper presents the production and evaluation of the Attitudes toward Social Justice in Education Scale (EAJSE) developed by the Research Group
Educational Change for Social Justice
, Autonomous University of Madrid. The scale is built based on a multidimensional concept of Social Justice, composed by three elements: Redistribution, Recognition and Representation. It consists of three subscales: Attitudes toward Social Justice, Role of education in Social Justice and Personal Commitment to Social Justice. After its initial development and subsequent single case validation by experts, an experimental validation for improvement and psychometric evaluation was conducted. A 518 sample responds to the scale: Graduate student of Early Childhood and Elementary Education, and professors of Secondary Level. After adjustment, the final scale was developed with an overall reliability of 0.83; and 0.83, 0.75 and 0.87 for each subscale. Also both construct validity as converging and diverging has been verified. The Annex presents the final version scale.
