It is necessary to rely on tools that evaluate suicidal ideation, given that it is one of the first factors that lead to suicide. This research performed an adaptation process of the Positive and Negative Suicidal Ideation (PANSI) so that it can be used in Peruvian university students. Two samples were studied, one before and one during the COVID-19 pandemic. At the methodological level, a rational procedure was followed with expert judges and individuals from the population to achieve cultural and conceptual equivalence of the tool; while, at the statistical level, three theoretical models were tested: Unidimensional, orthogonal and oblique. The two-factor correlated model revealed better fit indexes for both samples, with optimal levels of reliability. We completed a new version of the PANSI and discussed its theoretical basis for improving inferences from this tool.
