This research analyzes the internal structure of the Evaluation of Teaching Competence Questionnaire, the product of a rigorous methodological process of accumulation of evidence of validity and reliability. The questionnaire is based on the Evaluation of Teaching Competencies Model (MECD--acronym in Spanish). Unidimensionality tests were replicated (n=128,791) and AFE (n=67,111), with the results showing that 32 items assess the same construct. Meanwhile, the internal structure revealed two factors: planning and management of the teaching-learning process; and directing and valuating the teaching-learning process. A total variance of 75.02% and Cronbach's alpha of .98 were obtained. The structure was tested with structural equation modeling (n=462), which resulted in RMSEA=.07, SRMR=.02, CFI and TLI=93. The study concludes that the questionnaire integrates the components of teaching competence that are significant for students and demonstrated its representativeness with the MECD dimensions.
