Validation of Goal Orientation Measure in PALS among Latino Adolescents Participating in a College Outreach Program
Rinthapol, Nida; Duran, Richard
Online Submission, US-China Education Review A 6 p825-830 2011
The study will incorporate psychometric methods to examine the validity and reliability of the GO (goal orientation) measure which called PALS (pattern of adaptive learning survey) among immigrant youth. Previous research has not focused on the reliability and validity of the PALS for using with Latino students. Internal consistency reliability estimates of three different goal orientation measures assessed by the PALS using Cronbach's alpha. Factor analysis was used to verify that the three goal orientation measures represented separate dimensions. The verification of cultural validity in GO measurement helps us learn about how students participating in the program learn and process information and how we can further improve the program by tailoring it to the needs of students from historically underrepresented groups and enhance their access to higher education.
