General Description

This self-report instrument is composed of two sections, being the first one related to the frequency that, in the last month, the professors used certain competences to communicate with their students about sexuality and sexual education. The second section of the instrument is related to general communication strategies that, in the last month, the professors used to approach sexual education with their students. The results of the dimensionality analysis of the first section of the scale, revealed a three-dimensional structure, composed by three factors:

  • F1 – Communication competences based on information sharing (items 8, 9, 11, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 and 21) (α=.93);
  • F2 – Communication competences based on personal exposure (items 5, 10, 12 and 22) (α=.72);
  • F3 – Communication competences based on environment management (items 1, 2, 3 and 24) (α=.81).

The results of the dimensionality analysis of the second section of the scale, revealed a two-dimensional structure, composed by two factors:

  • F1 – Assertive communication strategies (items 4, 9, 10, 12, 13 and 14) (α=.89);
  • F2 – Manipulative communication strategies (items 1, 2, 3, 5, 6 and 8) (α=.87).
