Examining the Psychometric Properties of the Epistemic Belief Inventory (EBI)
Teo, Timothy
Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, v31 n1 p72-79 Feb 2013
The psychometric properties of the scores on the Epistemic Belief Inventory were examined using an exploratory factor analysis (principal axis factor) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) on a total sample of 1,242 elementary school teachers. Results of the EFA supported the hypothesized five-factor model but the items had loaded on different factors. Overall, the results showed that the five-factor model did not fit the data and that the EBI was not interpretable with the sample in this study. (Contains 2 tables.)
