Adaptation, rscala involves the offered family resources when assistance is necessary; Partnership, regarding the reciprocity in family communications and problem solving; Growth, related to the availability of the family to the changes of roles and emotional development; Affection, which includes intimacy and emotional interactions in family context; and Resolve, associated to the decision, determination or resoluteness in a certain family unit 67.

Investigations that proposed a psychometric analysis of the qualitative measurement instruments are important, once their reliability and validation are essential aspects to estimate the scientific quality of standardized instruments 13 Only after the verification that an instrument has satisfactory psychometric characteristics within a certain context of application it can guarantee that its usage is appropriate 13 The discrimination power of the Anxiety, Depression and Family Apgar Scales was evidenced through the area under the ROC curve, which were signiicantly higher than 0,5.

Apgsr, with this specific public there was the confirmation that the instrument must be used only for smilksteln, to estimate family functionality, as it does not allow escapa complete evaluation of the construct.

Furthermore, despite being transculturally adapted with a sample from the Southeast region of Brazil 8Family APGAR has only five evaluation items, described by short sentences, easy to comprehend, without regional expressions, and with simple and clear answering options, allowing to support the adequacy of the instrument, as well as to be used with samples from other parts of the country.

The items on the scale show an adequate level of dis crimination regarding the high and low scores of the scale, except for items 10, 12 and 17, which show areas under the curve lower than 0,7, but significantly different from 0,5. The correlations between the scales showed the right direction, confirming the con vergent and divergent validity of the anxiety, depression and family functionality scales.

Analysis of psychometric properties of family APGAR with elderly in northeast Brazil

METHOD This is a methodological research, that deals with the development, validation and evaluation of research tools Furthermore, it is seen that during the use of Family APGAR by Brazilian researchers, by journals in general, were aimed to classify family functionality 45 Only the item 6 of the depression test was eliminated since it did not show an adequate discrimination level.


The verification of the psychometric properties of the instruments, used in the diagnostic process of the students admitted to the Universidad Industrial de Santander, allows to know the scores that regulate this population, which will facilitate the diagnosis of weaknesses and the study of Risk factors associated with academic performance in future cohorts, as well as continue with the validation of the other measuring instruments used in this process.

Confidential levels of 0,85, 0, and 0, were observed for anxiety, depression and Family Apgar Scales, respectively. The factor identified is the offered family support to the elder Table 2. The aim of the research was to analyze the psychometric properties of Family APGAR, in a sample of elders in the municipality of Fortaleza, Brazil.

In contrast, for women, the internal consistency of the depression scale was 0, while in men it was 0, Qualidade de vida e fatores associados em idosos dependentes em uma cidade do interior do Nordeste.

July 31, ; Revised: Considering a set of 36 questions, equivalent to the 18 defining characteristics, the total score could vary from 0 to 72 points, generating the following classification regarding family functionality: The discrimination power of the items that make up each of the scales was calculated using the area under the Receiver Operational Characteristic ROC curve, using the non-parametric adjustment due to the large volume of data.

I am satisfied with the way my family demonstrates affection and reacts to my emotions, such as anger, regret or love. To answer these questions the following objectives were proposed: The ones responsible to collect the data were previously trained to apply the research instruments. Family Apgar items show an excellent discrimination level with respect to the total score, with areas under the ROC curve significantly higher than 0,5, at a significance level of 0,01 See Table 4.

Test results were compared with the depression clinical diagnosis, finding a sensitivity of I am satisfied, because I can count on my family in the case I need help when there is a disturbance or preoccupation. It consists of five affirma tions with a Likert response scale that ranges from never 0 to always 4.

To determine the reliability of Family APGAR, the method of Cronbach’s alpha was used, through the coefficient of discrimination of the items, considering as a satisfactory result if values were above 0. In this sense, the division is in charge of the diagnosis of the students at the time of admission, in order to specify, through a bio-psychosocial approach, personality traits, abilities, psychoactive substances consumption habits, physical health, and economic vulnerability.

The maximum significance level for the contrast of the statistical hypotheses was 0, Family APGAR proposes an evaluation of family functionality that is independent of the stage of life of the members of this same family. Literature demonstrates that it has been used with families with children, teenagers and elders 58 – They were visited, as well as the residence of the users of the Centers located up to nine blocks away from it, in a clockwise direction, to identify the homes of the elders.


The questionnaires were applied as part of a comprehensive assessment of admitted students, oriented apgaar an early diagnosis of risk factors that may influence their academic performance. The Zung Depression Scale has been used for a large number of studies in Colombian population. For this reason, this question is eliminated from the Zung Depression Scale for applications in Colombian samples.

To know the functionality of families with elders from the perception of the elder himself is a relevant issue, as it permits to visualize the value this individual gives to his most elemental source of psychosocial support, permitting to evaluate in which level is the family capable to satisfactorily attend the elder’s caring demands 25 Furthermore, a new validation of this instrument over a specific group will help the scientific research in gerontology.

Hence, to know the dynamics in how the family system works is an essential part in elderly care, over the many different scenarios of professional care. The Pearson Chi-square test for contingency tables was used to measure the independence between clinical diagnoses and their incidence per year.

As a consequence, there was no agglutination of answers in one single category. The psychometric instruments used to determine levels of anxiety and depression were designed by Zung. Pascarella and Terenzini mentioned four factors to be taken into account in the academic success or failure of university newly admitted students: Tesis de pregrado, Universidad de Cuenca. However, to implement such interventions, it is suggested a simultaneous use of instruments that gather all dimensions to evaluate family functionality.

The participants were explained about the objectives of the study. The socio-demographic characteristics of the elders that composed the sample showed that: This reinforces the idea that when using Family APGAR, it is necessary the support of other instruments, or even other types of professional evaluation to justify and implement effective interventions related to the dynamics of family functioning in a clinical context 67 Despite being validated in a state of a distinct geographical region 8another new situation of administration requires a new psychometric analysis, as an instrument is not validated by its measurement, but by its application
