This study examined whether the original factor structure of the Parent Success Indicator (PSI) could be replicated with scores from generational views on both the English- and Mandarin-language versions of the instrument. The 60-item PSI was evaluated using responses from 840 Taiwanese parents (n = 429) and their 10- to 14-year-old adolescents (n = 411), along with 1,618 parents ( n = 794) and their 10- to 14-year-old adolescents (n = 824) from the United States. The six-factor solution set resulting from varimax and oblimin rotation accounted for between 46% and 54% of the total variance in the four analyses, confirming the original conceptual intent of the instrument. The pattern of item-to-factor correlation suggests a goodness of fit ranging from 51 to 56 of the 60 items for the four respondent groups. (Contains 3 tables.)
