La estructura de muchos constructos bipolares se estudia habitualmente mediante escalas contrabalanceadas tipo Likert. Las respuestas a estas escalas son sometidas a análisis factorial, pero con frecuencia, la estructura factorial descubierta no es bipolar, sino que cada dimensión supuestamente bipolar se descompone en dos factores monopolares. Est...

Les critiques portent sur la formulation des items qui constituent ces echelles, ce qui fait que l'interpretation des echelles depend totalement de la formulation des items.

Burnout researchers have proposed that the conceptual opposites of emotional exhaustion and cynicism (the core dimensions of burnout) are vigor and dedication (the core dimensions of engagement), respectively ( [11] and [24]). We tested this proposition by ascertaining whether two sets of items, exhaustion–vigor and cynicism–dedication, were scalab...

Ambiguous response formats predict correlations from -.467 to -1 between opposite items, depending on whether the respondent's interpretation of the format is unipolar or bipolar. The authors present a procedure to investigate the proper interpretation in each case. It consists of applying nonparametric and parametric item response theory models (t...
Article
The structure of bipolar constructs is often studied using counterbalanced Likert-type scales. Answers obtained by means of these scales have been submitted to factor analysis, and contrary to expectations, the results frequently have shown that the obtained factor structure is not bipolar, but made up by two monopolar factors. Recently, Van Shuur...
