AMARAL, Ana Carolina Soares; CONTI, Maria Aparecida; FERREIRA, Maria Elisa Caputo  e  MEIRELES, Juliana Fernandes Filgueiras. Psychometric Evaluation of the Sociocultural Attitudes Towards Appearance Questionnaire-3 (SATAQ-3) among Adolescents. Psic.: Teor. e Pesq. [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.4, pp.471-479. ISSN 0102-3772.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0102-37722015042419471479.

The objective of this study was to obtain estimates of the psychometric properties of the Sociocultural Attitudes Towards Appearance Questionnaire-3 in a sample of Brazilian adolescents. The sample consisted of 600 adolescents (254 boys), who participated in different stages of the research: assessment of verbal comprehension, construct validity, convergent validity and reliability, and evaluation of the reproducibility (test-retest). The adolescents showed adequate verbal comprehension of all items. The scale presented a factor structure composed of seven factors (α > 0,40), with acceptable values of the fit indices of the model, significant positive correlation for the measures of body satisfaction (r = 0,41, p < 0,001), and reproducibility. The psychometric quality of the SATAQ-3 among adolescents was partially confirmed, and its use is indicated for this population.
