However, the Spanish language version lacks psychometric studies online applications. The aim of the study was to analyze the psychometric characteristics of the Spanish language version of the IAT.

The results showed a high internal consistency of the test. Three factors were extracted (consequences of Internet use, cognitive-emotional dimension and time control) that correlated positively with hours of daily access to the network and negatively with age.
