Abstract

Aims: To verify the psychometric qualities of the Portuguese version of the Body Shape Questionnaire (BSQ) when applied to female college students and evaluate the invariance of the model when applied to independent samples and according to nutritional status of the student. Methods: The research sample will consist of all students, female, enrolled in undergraduate courses Pharmaceutical Sciences (n = 202) and Sciences and Linguistics (n = 747) of the Universidade Estadual Paulista - UNESP Campus Araraquara (SP) in 2012/2013 who consent to participate. The content, construct (factorial, convergent and discriminant) and concurrent validity and internal consistency will be estimated. Confirmatory factor analysis will be performed using X2/df, CFI, GFI and RMSEA. The invariance of better factorial model, estimated based in the information theory index (AIC, BCC, BIC), will be calculated. The invariance will be estimated by multigroup analysis in two stages: i. for independent samples and ii. according to nutritional status of the students. Convergent validity will be estimated by the average variance extracted (AVE) and composite reliability (CR). The discriminant and concurrent validities will be evaluated by correlational analysis. Internal consistency will be estimated by standardized Cronbach's Coefficient Alpha.
