Resumen


Se analizan las características psicométricas de la prueba Time Management Behavior Questionnaire (TMBS), adaptada para el alumnado universitario colombiano. Se exploran: la validez de constructo mediante el modelo Rasch; la validez discriminante frente a una prueba de procrastinación académica, y la validez concurrente con el rendimiento promedio. Se analiza también la confiabilidad, la longitud de la escala y el comportamiento diferencial de los ítems (DIF). La muestra estuvo constituida por 494 universitarios de nueve carreras y dos universidades. Los resultados indican un buen ajuste al modelo Rasch, valores adecuados de confiabilidad, ítems sin funcionamiento diferencial y que las categorías de la escala Likert podrían reducirse de cinco a cuatro. Se obtuvieron asociaciones negativas y significativas con la procrastinación y asociaciones positivas significativas con las calificaciones. En las conclusiones se plantean recomendaciones para el uso de la prueba en el contexto latinoamericano.
