The Spanish translation, validation and adaptation of the Tennessee Self-Concept Scale (RSCS: Roid & Fitts, 1988/1991/1994), carried out by Rosado (EACT-R: 1992), was used to study the factor structure of this instrument with two populations. The comparative analysis of the adjusted samples was performed with adolescents students (n=264) and adult employees (n=544). The EACT-R defined one factor in the Personal Self (both samples), in the Family Self and Self-Criticism (adults) and, in the Physical Self (adolescents). The structural validity of the EACT-R was not confirmed by the results obtained in this study. These findings are consistent with previous studies of the TSCS that have not validated its construct nor its multidimensional design.

En este trabajo utilizamos la traducción al español, adaptación y validación del Tennessee Self-Concept Scale (TSCS: Roid & Fitts, 1988/1991/1994), efectuada por Rosado (EACT-R: 1992), para examinar la estructura factorial de este instrumento con dos poblaciones. Realizamos el análisis comparativo de las muestras ajustadas con estudiantes adolescentes (n=264) y personas empleadas adultas (n=544). No definimos la EACT-R unifactorialmente más que en el Yo Personal (ambas muestras), en el Yo Familiar y Autocrítica (personas adultas) y en el Yo Físico (adolescentes). La validez estructural de la EACT-R no se confirmó a base de los resultados obtenidos. Estos hallazgos son consistentes con estudios previos del TSCS en los que no se validó el constructo ni el diseño multidimensional de este instrumento.
