Validity and Sex Differences in the Structure of Adolescent Values.
Jaeger, Richard M.; Tittle, Carol Kehr
Two perspectives provide the theoretical framework for this study. The first provides confirmatory maximum likelihood estimates of factor loadings and factor intercorrelations; the second, and more important, provides statistical tests of hypotheses that factor structures and patterns of values are invariant for female and male adolescents. The confirmation of different factor structures and patterns of adolescents' ratings of values regarding career decisions, as well as different factor intercorrelations, has implications for the construct interpretation of value measures, and for their use in counseling and guidance.
