Jenkins-Guarnieri, Michael A.; Vaughan, Angela L.; Wright, Stephen L.
Measurement and Evaluation in Counseling and Development, v48 n4 p266-284 Oct 2015

Confirmatory factor analysis and item response theory analyses with data from 525 adults supported a 3-factor model with 13 items most sensitive for lower to middle range levels of the autonomy, competence, and relatedness constructs.
