Examining the Psychometric Properties of the Homework Management Scale for High School Students in China
Yang, Fuyi; Xu, Jianzhong
Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, v33 n3 p268-277 Jun 2015
This study reports on the psychometric evaluation of the Chinese version of the Homework Management Scale (HMS). The HMS was designed to assess students' homework management strategies. Based on a randomized split of 884 high school students in China, we conducted exploratory factor analysis on Group 1 (n = 442) and confirmatory factor analysis on Group 2 (n = 442). The factor structure of the Chinese version of the HMS was consistent with the original one developed in the United States (i.e., the existence of five separate, yet related, subscales). Reliability coefficients of the HMS and its subscales were in the adequate to good range. Finally, the HMS and its subscales, as predicted, were related to relevant homework measures in the theoretically expected directions. These findings suggest that the Chinese version of the HMS is a valid multidimensional measure for homework management. Suggestions for its application and future research are provided.
