El propósito de este estudio es presentar las propiedades psicométricas de un nuevo instrumento desarrollado por los autores para medir la percepción que tienen los trabajadores de una Organización con respecto a los comportamientos cívicos de sus compañeros, de su equipo de trabajo y de su jefe.  Para esto,  340 colaboradores de una Institución de Superior de Educación  en Ecuador respondieron a la Escala de Comportamientos Cívicos (ECC) y a través de un análisis factorial confirmatorio y un modelo de ecuaciones estructurales se demostró que el instrumento presenta una alta fiabilidad (α=0.96) y una validez convergente y discriminante que puede ser usada por otros investigadores y profesionales para evaluar los comportamientos cívicos en entornos educativos.
