Nasser, Fadia; Takahashi, Tomone
Applied Measurement in Education, v16 n1 p75-97 2003
Examined the impact of using item parcels on ad hoc goodness-of-fit indexes in confirmatory factor analysis using the Arabic version of Sarason's Reactions to Tests scale. Data from 421 and 372 Arabic speaking students at an Israeli high school show that lower skewness and kurtosis and higher validity occur for parcels than for individual items. (SLD)
