The objective of this study was to examine the psychometric properties of the Filipino version of the Academic Delay of Gratification Scale (ADOGS; Bembenutty and Karabenick, "Learn Individ Differ" 10:329-346, 1998). This instrument measures the degree to which students postpone immediately available opportunities to satisfy their impulses in order to pursue important goals that are temporally remote but ostensibly more important. Filipino high school students (N = 425) completed the ADOGS. Both within-network and between-network approaches to construct validation were used. Responses to this questionnaire were shown to have good internal consistency reliability and support is provided for its construct validity in terms of its correlations with other theoretically relevant educational constructs such as cognitive and metacognitive strategies. Multigroup tests showed strong invariance across year levels and partial invariance across genders. Implications for cross-cultural research are discussed.
