Abstract: The objective of this work is to verify the statistical significance and one-dimensional structure of the variables of the revised and short version of the smart phone addiction scale (sas-sv), which is suitable for Mexican college students. Methods a questionnaire survey was conducted among 244 students with Bachelor of management degree from Potosi Autonomous University in St. Louis, Mexico; Between August and December 2018, 174 women and 70 men aged 17 to 30 years. Confirmatory factor analysis was performed, and the variable parameters were checked by maximum likelihood method and Bayesian analysis. The reliability of the instrument is verified by Cronbach alpha. As the final analysis, the nonstandard weights are estimatedhe maximum likelihood method were compared against Bayesian a posteriori distribution estimates. Results. As a result, the model was found to adequately describe the sample data, presenting very small standard error estimates, and it was validated with Cronbach’s alpha of 0.885. In both Bayesian and maximum likelihood analysis, it is consistently evident that the construct is unidimensional. However, for the sample studied, it was observed that 3 of the variables did not reach a significant weight for the model. Conclusion. It concludes that the variables that measure smartphone addiction on the SAS-SV scale adapted to Spanish, indeed, form a unidimensional construct when applied to Mexican university students, which is consistent with results from previous studies. However, it is identified necessary to conduct further studies, in order to explain the low significance obtained for 3 variables of the model.
