The factorial structure of the Time Management (TM) scale of the Student 360: Insight Program (S360) was evaluated based on a national sample. A general procedure with a variety of methods was introduced and implemented, including the computation of descriptive statistics, exploratory factor analysis (EFA), and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). Overall, the results indicated that the TM scale measured multidimensional constructs of TM with 5 factors. The paper concludes with a discussion of several issues concerning the wording of items and residual dependencies, as well as future directions for research. Appended are: (1) Items and Subscales Layout; (2) Descriptive Statistics by Items; (3) Histogram of the Six Subscales; (4) Scree Plot for the Six Subscales Principal Component Analysis; (5) Measurement Models for Each of the Six Subscales; (6) Path Diagram and Parameter Estimates for the Time Management (TM) Scale (Diagonal Weighted Least Square [DWLS]); (7) Path Diagram and Parameter Estimates for the Time Management (TM) Scale (4-Factor, Diagonal Weighted Least Square [DWLS]); and (8) Path Diagram and Parameter Estimates for the Time Management (TM) scale (5-factor, Diagonal Weighted Least Square [DWL)]). (Contains 6 tables and 3 figures.)
