Conceptualization and Utility of University Mattering: A Construct Validity Study
France, Megan K.; Finney, Sara J.
Measurement and Evaluation in Counseling and Development, v43 n1 p48-65 2010
The purpose of this study was to gather validity evidence for the University Mattering Scale. Theoretically based factor structures were tested, resulting in the four-factor conceptualization of mattering being championed. As predicted, university mattering related positively to academic motivational and relatedness constructs and negatively to maladaptive help seeking and social adequacy concern. (Contains 5 tables and 2 notes.)
