This study examined the validity of a Chinese version of the Social Achievement Goal Orientation Scale (C-SAGOS), a measure testing the trichotomous framework of achievement goal orientations in a social domain. A total of 208 college students (51% female) aged 18 to 23 participated in the study. Factor analyses showed that the three-factor model best fits the current sample and is invariant across gender groups. Results indicate that the C-SAGOS has acceptable psychometric properties, and the framework of social achievement goal is applicable to a Chinese culture.
