La presente investigación tuvo como propósito evaluar las propiedades psicométricas del Cuestionario de Ciberbullying (CBQ) en una muestra de adolescentes argentinos. Se evaluó una muestra de 898 adolescentes (43 % varones, edad media 15.2). Los participantes respondieron a dicho cuestionario, a la escala victimización y agresión del cuestionario de Olweus y a medidas de problemas emocionales (depresión y ansiedad). Los análisis factorial exploratorio y confirmatorio indicaron una subescala de Ciberagredir y dos subescalas de Cibervictimización; las alfas de Cronbach fueron adecuadas. Se observó validez convergente de la subescala Ciberagredir con la escala agredir de Olweus y de las dos subescalas de Cibervictimización con la escala victimización de Olweus. También se observó la validez convergente del instrumento con los puntajes de depresión y ansiedad y estas con un modelo de ecuaciones estructurales.
