PILATI, Ronaldo  and  ABBAD, Gardênia. Confirmatory factor analysis of a scale for impact of training at work. Psic.: Teor. e Pesq. [online]. 2005, vol.21, n.1, pp.043-051. ISSN 0102-3772.

Training impact at work is the main indicator of training effectiveness at the individual level. In the training evaluation models, impact is a measure of behavior change on the job. The conceptual delimitation of similar constructs, as transfer of learning, is important to research. The main objective of this study were to test the empirical structure of the training impact at work's scale with a confirmatory factor analysis and the adequacy of the construct. In this study, participated 2.966 workers of seven organizations, divided in three sub-samples. The results indicated model modifications, and the analysis was corroborated on the three sub-samples. Thus, the measurement should be improved. However, the conceptual proposition of training impact at work was corroborated.

Keywords : training impact at work; transfer of learning; confirmatory factor analysis.
