      En el actual sistema educativo, existe una enorme preocupación por el bajo rendimiento en las diferentes áreas académicas, lo que promueve la búsqueda de nuevas fórmulas de actuación docente. Esta búsqueda exige que el alumnado deba aprender nuevas habilidades y capacidades con el fin de adaptarse a este proceso en continua evolución. Desde esta perspectiva, con preocupación por los escasos logros académicos, se pone de relieve la enorme importancia que pueden llegar a tener las emociones y su adecuado control para la mejora del mismo. Este trabajo tiene como objetivo validar un cuestionario para evaluar el miedo, utilizando como referencia el Fear Survey Schedule for Children II (FSSC-II) (Ascensio et al., 2012) y destinado a una muestra de estudiantes desde educación primaria hasta bachillerato en la ciudad de Ceuta. Para esto se contó con 961 participantes, procedentes de 8 centros distintos (4 Centros de Educación Infantil y Primaria [CEIP] y 4 Institutos de Enseñanza Secundaria [IES]). El 53.4% fueron mujeres, el 46.6% varones, el 66.3% musulmanes, el 33.7%, con edades comprendidas entre los 6 y los 18 años. Considerando la muestra por cultura, el 66.3% fueron musulmanes y el 33.7% cristianos. Como instrumento de evaluación se empleó el FSSC-II, adaptado al castellano por Ascensio et al. (2012). Se reflejan niveles de fiabilidad altos así como las dimensiones esperadas (5) para el cuestionario, apareciendo intercorrelaciones positivas entre los totales y las dimensiones que lo conforman. Este cuestionario se muestra como instrumento adecuado para evaluar estas capacidades en la población adolescente en un contexto diferente al del trabajo de referencia. In the current educational system, an enormous preoccupation by the low yield in the different academic areas exists, which promotes the search of new formulas of educational performance. This search cause that the pupils must learn new abilities and capacities with the purpose of conforming itself to this process in continuous evolution. From this perspective, with preoccupation by the little academic profits, the enormous importance is put of relief that can get to have the emotions and their suitable control for the improvement of himself. Socio-emotional states are starting to become more relevant and are now part of a reality in the field of Education. In this field there is high interest in emotional education programs, especially in earlier stages. These programs must be evaluated to check this efficiently. The objective of this paper is to validate a questionnaire to assess Fear, using as reference the Fear Survey Schedule for Children II (FSSC-II) (Ascensio et al., 2012) aimed at a sample of students from Primary to the end of Secondary Education. We focused on 961 participants from 8 different centers (4 schools and 4 high schools) that clearly reflect the city's pluricultural features. Considering age we focused on children from 6 to 18 years old. Considering gender, the 46.6% of them are boys and the 53.4% are girls. If we consider culture and custom religion, 66.3% are Muslims and 33.7% Christians. The technique used in this survey is a test developed to assess Fear (FSSC-II) adapted for its use in the Spanish language by Ascensio et al. (2012). The results show high levels of reliability. Our expectations about dimensions (5) were confirmed for the questionnaire. There are positive correlations between totals and the dimensions of the questionnaire. Therefore this questionnaire is an appropriate tool to evaluate the Fear in a teenager sample in our context.

      The aim of this study was to measure the eight Psychological Types proposed by Carl G. Jung in Mexican population. A cross-sectional, multicenter, exploratory study was carried out, for which a psychometric instrument based on Jungian typology theory was developed. The Psychological Type Indicator (ITP, for its acronym in Spanish) consisted of 8 subscales (one per psychological type). It was administered to a sample of 1194 participants and validated by the methodological and statistical procedure developed by Reyes Lagunes and García y Barragán. The participants were Mexican university students, ranging from 17 to 40 years (median=21, IQR=4; 63% female). The internal consistency of the instrument was determined, obtaining an alpha coefficient of 0.873. An exploratory factor analysis indicated a structure of 10 factors, which together explained 32.672% of the variance. Four of the found factors were consistent with Jungian typology (Introverted Feeling, Introverted Thinking, Extraverted Sensing and Extraverted Feeling). The rest of the factors grouped attributes of this theory, which enable a new way of assessing personality in Mexican population with reference on this model of personality.

  • Revisión psicométrica de tres escalas del perdón: midiendo
           la metamorfosis emocional

      Se ha reportado que una transgresión interpersonal puede hacer que los individuos mantengan el resentimiento y experimenten más afecto negativo, ira, estrés, y depresión (Stackhouse, Ross y Boon, 2016). Dado su impacto en la salud física y mental, es importante estudiar el perdón desde la psicología científica, para lo cual es necesario contar con instrumentos válidos y confiables. Sin embargo, hay pocos en español, y no han sido suficientemente estudiados, por lo que en esta investigación se revisaron las propiedades psicométricas de tres escalas del perdón: la Escala de Capacidad de Perdón (CAPER; Casullo y Fernández-Liporacce, 2005), la Escala del Perdón (Vargas-Núñez y Pozos-Gutiérrez, 2005), y la Escala del Perdón en la Relación de Pareja (Rosales-Sarabia, 2013). Para el análisis de la escala CAPER y la Escala del Perdón participaron 253 adultos, mientras que en el caso de la Escala del Perdón en la Relación de Pareja participaron 238 personas involucradas en una relación de pareja, todos residentes del área metropolitana de la Ciudad de México. Los resultados mostraron que solo la Escala del Perdón en la Relación de Pareja replicó su estructura factorial en una muestra distinta. Se discuten los hallazgos a la luz de la literatura científica internacional. It has been reported that suffering from interpersonal transgressions may cause individuals to maintain resentment and experience more negative affect, anger, stress, and depression (Stackhouse, Ross, & Boon, 2016). Given its impact on physical and mental health, it is important to study forgiveness from a scientific perspective, for which counting on valid and reliable measure instruments is highly important. However, there are just a few in Spanish, and haven’t been deeply studied, so in this research the psychometric properties of three scales of forgiveness were reviewed: The Forgiveness Capacity Scale (CAPER; Casullo & Fernández-Liporacce, 2005), the Forgiveness Scale (Vargas-Núñez & Pozos-Gutiérrez, 2005), and the Scale of Forgiveness in the Romantic Relationship (Rosales-Sarabia, 2013). For the psychometric analysis of CAPER and the Forgiveness Scale, 253 adults participated, while for the Scale of Forgiveness in the Romantic Relationship, 238 people involved in a relationship participated, all residents of the metropolitan area of the Mexico City. The results showed that only the Forgiveness Scale in the Romantic Relationship replicated its factorial structure in a different sample. Findings are discussed in the light of international scientific literature.

      El propósito de este estudio instrumental fue obtener las propiedades psicométricas de la Escala de Violencia de Pareja que se expresa a través de Medios Electrónicos (EVIME) en adolescentes mexicanos. Colaboraron 878 participantes, hombres y mujeres con edades de entre 12 y 19 años (M=16.58; DE=1.36 años). Dicha escala está compuesta por 32 reactivos agrupados en 5 factores y con formato de respuesta tipo Likert de 4 opciones. Se obtuvo la validez de constructo mediante análisis factorial de componentes principales con rotación ortogonal (varimax) que explican el 57.7% de la varianza (prueba KMO=0.93, p =0.00). La consistencia interna total tiene un valor alfa de Cronbach α=0.94. Las prevalencias de violencia en una muestra probabilística de 1,278 adolescentes para cada una de las dimensiones son: control, monitoreo intrusivo y vigilancia cibernética=44.3%; agresión verbal=15.5%; agresión sexual=11.9%; coerción sexual=7.7% y humillación=6.1%. La violencia de pareja que se manifiesta a través de medios electrónicos es un problema social y de salud pública emergente que posee cualidades específicas debido a la naturaleza de las herramientas tecnológicas que utilizan los adolescentes para interactuar con la pareja romántica. The aim of this study was to get the psychometric characteristics for the Social/Electronic Media Violence in Couples Scale (EVIME for its initials in Spanish) in Mexican teenagers. There were 878 participants, men and women with ages ranging between 12 and 19 years old (M=16.58; SD=1.36). This scale is composed by 32 items grouped into 5 factors with 4 Likert-type answer options. The construct validity was obtained through a factorial analysis of principal components with an orthogonal rotation (varimax) which account for the 57.7% of the variance (KMO test=.93, P =.00). The total internal consistency has a Cronbach's alpha of α=.94. Violence prevalence in a probabilistic simple of 1,278 teenagers for each dimension are: control, intrusive monitoring and cybernetic vigilance=44.3%; verbal aggression=15.5%; sexual aggression=11.9%; sexual coercion=7.7% and humiliation=6.1%. Violence in couples through social/electronic media is a social and public health growing problem with specific characteristics due to all the variety of technological tools teenagers use to interact with their couple.

      Researchers are making increasing use of the distinction between cultural logics emphasizing dignity, face, and honor. Students from eight nations including two from Latin America rated items tapping the extent to which they believed that most persons in their nation endorsed these types of mindset. Their ratings did not accord with prior beliefs as to which cultures exemplify dignity, face, and honor. However, the predictions that analytic cognition would be more prevalent in dignity cultures and contrasting types of holistic cognition would be more prevalent in face and honor cultures were supported. The belief that the logic of dignity was prevalent within one's nation was significantly associated with higher life satisfaction.

      La fatiga es una sensación de cansancio físico con consecuencias adversas en la calidad de vida de las personas, por consiguiente, es importante contar con instrumentos confiables y válidos para medirla. Una de las escalas más utilizadas es la Escala de Impacto de Fatiga, sin embargo, hay versiones con una y tres dimensiones en diversas culturas. Por lo que el propósito de este trabajo fue traducir, adaptar de manera culturalmente relevante y comparar las estructuras de una y tres dimensiones de la Escala de Impacto de Fatiga, para identificar la más adecuada en población general de la Ciudad de México. Se trabajó con tres grupos diferentes de participantes; el primero para la traducción y adaptación conformado por siete jueces expertos en el idioma, el segundo para la validación psicométrica con 205 participantes de población general y, el tercero, para el análisis factorial confirmatorio con 406 habitantes de la Ciudad de México. Se probó la distribución, discriminación, confiabilidad y estructura de la escala, en un análisis exploratorio y confirmatorio, quedando una escala final de 10 reactivos con tres factores: física, mental y psicosocial que explican el 59% de varianza con buen ajuste (X2[21.7] =20,762, p=0.522; CFI=1; RMSEA=0), con una confiabilidad α=0.93. Fatigue is a sensation of physical weariness with adverse consequences on the quality of life of people, therefore, it is important to have reliable and valid instruments to measure it. One of the most widely used is the Fatigue Impact Scale, however, there are one- and three-dimensional versions in several cultures. Therefore, the aim of this work was to translate, culturally relevant and compare the one and three-dimensional structures of the Fatigue Impact Scale to identify the most appropriate in the general population of Mexico City, with three different groups of participants. The first one for translation and adaptation made up with seven expert judges in the language; the second for psychometric validation with 205 participants from the general population, and the third, for confirmatory factor analysis with 406 inhabitants of Mexico City. The distribution, discrimination, reliability and structure of the scale were tested in an exploratory and confirmatory analysis, with a final scale of 10 items with three factors: physical, mental and psychosocial explaining the 59% variance with goodness of fit (X2[21.7]=20.762, p=0.522; CFI=1; RMSEA=0), with reliability α=0.93.

      El apoyo social es definido como la disponibilidad de personas en las que se puede confiar, que le hacen saber a un individuo que es valorado y amado. El objetivo del estudio fue elaborar una escala para evaluar el apoyo social en personas adultas mexicanas. En una primera fase, 200 adultos (M edad =25, DE =8.93) respondieron redes semánticas para obtener el significado del apoyo social. En una segunda fase, resultado de las redes semánticas y con los supuestos teóricos sobre apoyo social, se elaboró una escala Likert con 6 opciones de respuesta. Colaboraron 350 participantes (M edad =33, DE =9.38). En ambas fases la muestra se integró por residentes de la Ciudad de México y área metropolitana. Resultado de los análisis psicométricos realizados (sesgo, correlación ítem total, t de Student para grupos extremos, análisis factorial de componentes principales con rotación oblicua y alpha de Cronbach), la escala quedó integrada por 26 reactivos distribuidos en 4 factores: emocional (α=0.90), compañerismo (α=0.75), validación (α=0.82) y práctico/instrumental (α=0.80). La varianza explicada fue del 56.33%, con un índice de fiabilidad global de 0.937. Se obtuvo una escala válida, confiable y culturalmente relevante para evaluar el apoyo social en población mexicana. Social support is defined as the availability of people on whom someone can rely on, people who let an individual know that he is valued and loved. The aim of this research was to elaborate a scale to assess the social support in adult Mexican people. In the first stage 200 adults (M age =25, SD =8.93) answered and instrument using the technique of the natural semantic networks to obtain the psychological meaning of social support. In a second stage, using the results from the first one, a Likert instrument with six answer options was elaborated. In that part 350 participants collaborated (M age =33, SD =9.38). In both stages the samples were integrated by Mexico City and Metropolitan Area residents. Result of the psychometric analysis performed (skew, item-total correlation, Student t test for extreme groups, factorial analysis by principal components with oblique rotation and Cronbach's alpha), the scale became integrated for 26 items distributed in 4 factors: emotional (α=.90), fellowship (α=.75), validation (α=.82) and practical/instrumental (α=.80). The explained variance was of 56.33% with a global reliability index of .937. It was obtained a valid and reliable scale, culturally relevant to assess the social support in Mexican population.

      Mathematics competencies are critical in the development of the individual. There are several variables that can predict poor performance in this competition. These variables may be related to self-learner and teacher who instructs. Objective Analyse the risk of poor performance depending on several variables: attending early childhood education, learning strategies and strategies used by the teacher uses. Method No experimental or ex post facto. Data We used the database PISA 2012 for Spain provided by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sport. The generated data sample consists of 25,313 young Spaniards of both sexes, aged 15 years, belonging to 902 schools that are distributed throughout the national territory of Spain. Dependent or endogenous variable Performance in mathematics. Independent or exogenous variables Different variables were considered: attendance and duration of Early Childhood Education, student learning strategies and teaching strategies. Analysis of data Binary logistic regression. Results It shows that the factor that has greater predictive capability of risk of underperformance is attending Early Childhood Education [β =−.595; ρ <.001]. It is the variable that has more predictive capability of risk of all analysed. Discussion There are variables that increase the risk and others that reduce this risk. It is possible to prevent low performance in Mathematics competencies, for example, we need to pursue a teaching of quality Early Childhood Education knowing their long-term benefits and not only ensure access to it for all children.

      Con el objetivo de identificar, entre 317 municipios y delegaciones del país, aquellos que requieren con mayor prioridad servicios de tratamiento y prevención del consumo de drogas, se llevó a cabo un estudio transversal con base en el método Delphi, el cual constituye una metodología estructurada para recolectar sistemáticamente juicios de expertos sobre un problema, de manera que las apreciaciones individuales se transforman para elaborar un juicio colectivo sobre el tema, lo que sirve para aplicar un peso ponderado a las variables en estudio. En este caso se contó con un panel de 55 expertos que valoró el nivel de riesgo de 33 indicadores demográficos, de salud, económicos, de educación, vivienda, geográficos, turísticos, sociofamiliares, del tráfico de estupefacientes y del consumo de drogas ilegales que se encontraban vigentes. Las variables estudiadas fueron: proporción de concentración urbana, tasa media de crecimiento, edad promedio, proporción de población masculina, tasa de migración internacional, proporción de servicios de salud, viviendas con agua y energía eléctrica, viviendas con servicio de drenaje, viviendas con Internet, nivel de hacinamiento, nivel de ingreso, pobreza alimentaria, pobreza de capacidades, pobreza de patrimonio, personas de 3 años y más que no asisten a la escuela, personas de 12 años y más que no asisten a la escuela, nivel de escolaridad, ubicación en la frontera norte, formar parte de grandes metrópolis, afluencia de turismo nacional e internacional, proporción de embarazos tempranos, proporción de personas que profesan alguna religión, encontrarse ubicado en rutas de tráfico de marihuana, cocaína, metanfetaminas y/o heroína, la prevalencia del consumo de drogas en los jóvenes, las prevalencias del consumo de cocaína y de marihuana, la percepción de incremento del consumo de drogas y la proporción de la población a la que le han ofrecido drogas regaladas. Los resultados mostraron que de los 371 municipios y delegaciones con 50,000 habitantes o más considerados para este estudio, 85 de ellos formaron parte de grandes metrópolis, con más de un millón de personas; 73 fueron puntos turísticos y 73.5% de las localidades conformaron concentraciones urbanas. Se identificaron 59 municipios y delegaciones con nivel de riesgo macrosocial alto o muy alto y 105 municipios y delegaciones con un nivel de riesgo macrosocial mediano-alto, que requieren con mayor prioridad de servicios de prevención, tratamiento y rehabilitación del consumo de drogas. With the objective to identify, among 317 municipalities and delegations of the country, those requiring with higher priority drug abuse prevention and treatment services, it was made a cross-sectional study, based on the Delphi method, which is a structured methodology to systematically collect expert opinions on an issue, so that the individual assessments are transformed to produce a collective judgment on the subject that was carried out, and apply a weight to the variables under study. In this case we had a panel of 55 experts, whose assessed the risk level of 33 updated demographic, health, economic, education, housing, geographic, touristic, socio-familiar, drug trafficking and use of illegal drugs. The studied variables were: Proportion of urban concentration, average growth rate, average age, proportion of male population, international migration rate, Proportion of health services, Homes with water and electricity, Drawnig housing service, Internet housing service, Overcrowding level, Income level, Food poverty, Capability poverty, Patrimony poverty, Persons of 3 years and older who do not attend school, Persons aged 12 and over who do not attend school, school level, location on the northern border, are part of large metropolis, inflow of national and international tourism, proportion of early pregnancy, people who practice some religion, be located on routes of trafficking marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine and / or heroin, prevalence of drug use among young people, prevalence of cocaine and marijuana use, the perception of increased drug use, and the proportion of the population that has been offered drugs for free. The results showed that of the 371 municipalities and delegations with 50,000 inhabitants or more considered for this study, 85 of them were part of large metropolis with more than a million people; 73 were tourist spots and 73.5% of the localities made urban concentrations. Were identified 59 municipalities and delegations with a high or very high macro-social risk level and 105 municipalities and delegations with a medium-high macro-social risk level, requiring with highest priority services of prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of drug abuse problems.

      El individualismo y el colectivismo se han considerado síndromes culturales dicotómicos que caracterizan a los miembros de un país y que pueden estar reflejados en la identidad nacional. Una cultura individualista está caracterizada por promover la independencia y la autonomía; por otro lado, una cultura colectivista promueve la interdependencia entre personas y su grupo, en estas culturas las necesidades del grupo se consideran más importantes que las del individuo. Sin embargo, las fronteras geopolíticas entre países no contemplan las diferencias históricas, las normas sociales y las prácticas y particularidades culturales entre localidades y países. Por ejemplo, entre la Ciudad de México y Guanajuato, localidades que en teoría cuentan con tendencias políticas antagónicas, Guanajuato se considera una región de México ultraconservadora, mientras que la Ciudad de México es conocida por la apertura a la discusión de temas como el aborto, la legalización del aborto y el matrimonio igualitario; la Ciudad de México se relaciona con una ideología política de izquierda. En un contexto conservador, es más común estar de acuerdo con ideologías tradicionales sobre los roles de hombres y mujeres. En este sentido, hombres y mujeres pueden internalizar diferenciadamente el individualismo y colectivismo. El objetivo de este trabajo es determinar las características del individualismo y colectivismo en dos regiones, así como entre hombres y mujeres. Participaron 420 hombres y mujeres del Valle de México y del estado de Guanajuato. Los resultados muestran que la muestra total presenta características del individualismo y colectivismo; se encontraron diferencias significativas en tres de diez factores por región. En todos estos, las medias son superiores a la media teórica. En Guanajuato los participantes mostraron mayores puntajes de Independencia y Libertad, pero al mismo tiempo reportaron niveles más altos de familismo relacionado con la obediencia. Se encontraron diferencias por sexo, las mujeres de Guanajuato mostraron mayores niveles de individualismo en comparación con los otros grupos. Los hallazgos son discutidos con base en la literatura pertinente. Para estudios subsecuentes es importante incluir variables como nivel de escolaridad, socioeconómico y actitudes respecto al grupo de referencia y de comparación. Individualism and collectivism are considered dichotomous cultural syndromes that characterize members of a country and they can be reflected on national identity. An individualistic culture is characterized by promote independence and autonomy; by other hand, a collectivistic culture promotes interdependence between person and his/her reference group, in these cultures the group necessities are most important that the individual's ones. However, the geopolitical boundaries between countries not contemplate the differences between history, social norms and practices, or cultural particularities between localities and counties. For example between Mexico City and Guanajuato which have, in theory, antagonistic politic tendencies: Guanajuato is considered an ultraconservative region in Mexico, while Mexico City is known for the opening to discuss themes as abortion's legalization for free election or same-sex marriage; Mexico City is related with left political ideology. In a conservative context, is more common to be agree with traditional ideology about roles for men and women. In this way, men and women can internalized individualism and collectivisms different. The aim of this paper is determined characteristics of individualism and collectivism in two Mexican regions as well as in men and women. It was atended by 420 men and women of the Valley of Mexico and the state of Guanajuato. Results show that the Mexican population as a whole, shows characteristics of individualism and collectivism; there are significant differences on three of ten factors by region. In all of them, the mean is upper to theoretical mean. In Guanajuato, people show higher values of independence and freedom, but, at same time, they report high levels of familism related to obedience. About gender differences, the sample of women in Guanajuato shows higher levels of individualism in comparison with other groups. The findings are discussed on the relevant literature. For subsequent studies is important include variables as scholar level, socioeconomic level, and attitudes about their referential and comparison groups.

      El reconocimiento facial de la expresión emocional es la capacidad de todos los individuos de reconocer formas básicas de expresión afectiva, la cual aparece en los rostros de las personas. Investigaciones previas sugieren que existen diferencias en el reconocimiento facial de la expresión emocional entre carreras universitarias, sin embargo, hay pocos estudios en México, y es por ello que el objetivo del presente estudio fue determinar estas diferencias en estudiantes universitarios. Se utilizaron 70 imágenes del Facial Expressions of Emotion-Stimuli and Test. Para determinar las diferencias por carrera se llevó a cabo un análisis de varianza simple con pruebas post hoc de Tukey, obteniendo diferencias estadísticamente significativas en el reconocimiento facial de la tristeza, el asco y el enojo. Facial affect recognition is the capacity of every person to recognize basic forms of affective expression, which appears at human faces. Previous research suggests that facial affect recognition differences between university careers exist. There are few studies at Mexico that assess these. The purpose of this study was to determine career differences among university studies. To assess the variable 70 images from the Facial Expression of Emotion- Stimuli and Test were used. To determine career differences a single factor analysis of variance with Tukey post hoc test was made, obtaining statistically significant differences at facial affect recognition of sadness, disgust and angry emotions.

      La presente investigación evalúa las propiedades psicométricas de la adaptación al español del Inventory of Statements About Self-injury de Klonsky y Glenn (2009). Esta escala evalúa las diferentes motivaciones o funciones que las personas refieren para realizar autolesiones no suicidas. Se aplicó la escala en una muestra (N=435) de alumnos universitarios de ambos sexos con una historia de autolesiones no suicidas. El análisis factorial confirmatorio detectó 7 factores interpretables (autorregulación, venganza, búsqueda de sensaciones/fortaleza, evitando el suicidio, manifestando angustia, autodeterminación y embotamiento), 5 más que el instrumento original. La confiabilidad de la escala fue aceptable, con un alfa de Cronbach de 0.89 para la escala total y de 0.72 a 0.82 para cada factor. Se presenta la validez convergente a través de correlaciones positivas entre la escala y mediciones de depresión, ansiedad e impulsividad. El instrumento adaptado al español presenta propiedades psicométricas aceptables para la medición de autolesiones no suicidas en población universitaria mexicana. This research evaluates the psychometric properties of the Spanish language adaptation of the Inventory of Statements About Self-injury (Klonsky and Glenn, 2009). This scale assesses the motivations or functions that people with non-suicidal self-injuries report for engaging in self-injurious behaviors. The inventory was administered to a sample of 435 male and female university students with a lifetime history of non-suicidal self-injuries. A confirmatory factor analysis detected 7 interpretable factors (self-regulation, revenge, sensation seeking/toughness, avoiding suicide, marking distress, self-determination and numbness), 5 more than the original instrument. The scale had adequate internal consistency with a Cronbach's alpha of 0.89 and Cronbach's alphas of 0.72 to 0.82 for each factor. Positive correlations between the scale and measures of depression, anxiety and impulsivity suggest the convergent validity of the scale. Overall, the scale presents acceptable psychometric properties for the measurement of non-suicidal self-injuries in a Mexican university population.
