Resumen

El agotamiento emocional académico es la primera etapa del síndrome de burnout académico, y es necesario evaluarlo e intervenir temprano ya que las consecuencias son significativas para las personas. El objetivo de esta investigación es realizar un análisis psicométrico de la Escala de Cansancio Emocional (ECE) para evaluar su estructura interna, invariancia de medida y confiabilidad de consistencia interna, en una muestra de estudiantes universitarios ecuatorianos en el contexto de la pandemia COVID-19. Participaron 453 estudiantes universitarios de Ecuador (76.21 % mujeres) de entre 17 y 35 años (M = 22.76 años). Los resultados muestran que la estructura unidimensional tiene soporte estadístico, es invariante en cuanto al sexo y muestra una adecuada confiabilidad de consistencia interna. Se concluye que la ECE tiene propiedades psicométricas adecuadas que permiten su uso en estudiantes universitarios ecuatorianos.
