Goodness-of-Fit Indices From the Multigroup Confirmatory Factor Analysis of Undergraduate Males and Females Model [chi square] (df) [chi square]/df Model 00: baseline model without invariance constraints 34.
Testing for the equivalence of factor covariance and mean structures: The issue of partial measurement invariance.
A scalar invariance model was explored for both groups to examine whether intercepts and latent means could also be considered equivalent in addition to the factor loadings.
The confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) and analysis of factorial invariance across gender were performed on AMOS (version 18), and multiple indicators of adjustment were taken into account, such as: [chi square] (chi-square), ratio to the model's degrees of freedom ([chi square]/df), GFI (Goodness of Fit Index), AGFI (Adjusted Goodness of Fit Index), CFI (Comparative Fit Index), TLI (Tucker-Lewis Index), RMSEA (Root Mean Square Error of Approximation) and its 90% confidence interval (90% CI), SRMR (Standardized Root Mean Square Residual), [DELTA]CFI and [DELTA]RMSEA (factorial invariance) (Byrne, 2010; Cheung & Rensvold, 2002; Hooper, Coughlan, & Mullen, 2008; Tabachnick & Fidell, 2013).
2011), additional CFAs were performed to test for measurement invariance across samples and gender.
Progressive factorial invariance was performed separately for men and women (Table 3) in order to evaluate the scale's construct validity and establish the factorial equivalence between versions of Spain and Colombia.
That is, identifying whether the measurement invariance confirms that the latent construct can be generalized and is open to analogical interpretation between specific groups (Milfont and Fischer 2010).
1999); (b) the measurement invariance across age and gender; (c) the reliability of the PA and NA; and (d) its criterion validity and convergent/discriminant validity.
Translation invariance, homogeneity, and monotonicity are not difficult to satisfy.
However, there is a question of whether random item effects and the associated approximate measurement invariance can adequately compensate for differences in the scales raters use.
