Reliability and Structural Validity of Cross Racial Identity Scale Scores in a Sample of African American Adults
Worrell, Frank C.; Vandiver, Beverly J.; Cross, William E., Jr.; Fhagen-Smith, Peony E.
Journal of Black Psychology, v30 n4 p489-505 2004
In this article, the authors examine the internal consistency and structural validity of scores on the Cross Racial Identity Scale (CRIS; Vandiver et al., 2000; Worrell, Vandiver, & Cross, 2000) in a sample of 105 adults. Exploratory factor analyses provided support for the six-factor structure of the CRIS. Reliability estimates for the scores were in the high to moderate range, and subscale inter-correlations were low. The authors conclude that the evidence supporting the CRIS is strong and recommend that the examination of CRIS scores be extended into other areas of construct validity.
