BRANT, Sandra Regina Corrêa; PILATI, Ronaldo  and  BORGES-ANDRADE, Jairo Eduardo. Implementation strategies for learning : An Item Response Theory (IRT)-Based Analysis. Psicol. Reflex. Crit. [online]. 2015, vol.28, n.1, pp.1-10. ISSN 0102-7972.

This study aimed to analyze the psychometric features of the "Strategies for Implementation at Work of Learning at Training" scale through the Item Response Theory. With a secondary database composed of 1,241 participants, eighteen items were calibrated by using the gradual response model. Ten items belong to the Behavioral Strategies subscale and eight to the Cognitive-affective Strategies subscale. The results suggest good accuracy for both subscales, especially in their valid ranges, with an informational level from moderate to high. The instrument shows appropriate evidence of construct validity. It may be used in future research, especially in the field of organizational and work psychology.

Keywords : Item Response Theory; transfer of training strategies; learning transfer to work.
