Project Evaluation: Validation Of A Scale And Analysis Of Its Predictive Capacity

Fernanda Francielle de OLIVEIRA

The objective of this study was to validate a scale for assessment of academic projects. As a complement, we examined its predictive ability by comparing the scores of advised/corrected projects based on the model and the final scores awarded to the work by an examining panel (approximately 10 months after the project design). Results of Confirmatory Factor Analysis (with 161 projects) indicated convergent validity and discriminant validity. Regression analysis revealed a positive and significant relationship between the scores of projects and final scores of the work, strengthening the claim of the usefulness of the model to minimize potential wear in advising processes.

KEYWORDS: Project Evaluation; Scale; Advising Processes.
