An Empirical Examination of the Construct Validity of Goal Commitment in the Persistence Process.
Allen, David; Nora, Amaury
Research in Higher Education, v36 n5 p509-33 Oct 1995
In a study of the construct validity of goal commitment in college student persistence, goal commitment was decomposed into multiple indicators of the same latent construct. Predictive validity of each subcomponent on different outcomes related to persistence was established. Only one factor was found to have a significant direct effect on student intent to persist and actual persistence behavior. (Author/MSE)
