ABSTRACT
In order to complete the validation process of the Cuestionario de Expectativas sobre el Alcohol para Adolescentes [Expectations Questionnaire on Alcohol Intake for Adolescents -CEA-A for its Spanish acronym] initiated at an earlier stage, a confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was conducted. A sample of 343 adolescents aged 13 to 18 from public high schools participated in the present study. The Expectations Questionnaire on Alcohol Intake for Adolescents was used to assess the effects that adolescents anticipate from drinking alcohol. Data were assessed by means of a fit model whereby expectations are divided into three scales corresponding to the positive effects of alcohol intake and another three referring to the negative ones. The indices used were the following: CIMIN/df, GFI, CFI, RMSEA.Results confirmed the previously found structure of three scales for positive expectations on alcohol intake and three scales for negative expectations. According to that, the CEA-A is a valid and reliable measure to assess alcohol expectations of Argentinean adolescents.
