Adjustment Scales for Children and Adolescents: Factorial Validity Generalization with Hispanic/Latino Youths
Canivez, Gary L.; Sprouls, Katie
Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, v28 n3 p209-221 2010
Replication of the Adjustment Scales for Children and Adolescents (ASCA) core syndrome factor structure with a sample of 124 randomly selected Hispanic/Latino youths is reported. The six ASCA core syndromes produced the identical two-factor solution observed in other samples. Principal-axis exploratory factor analysis using multiple factor extraction criteria and varimax, direct oblimin, and promax rotations produced nearly identical factor structure coefficients. Consistent with earlier studies, the ASCA was observed to measure two independent dimensions of youth psychopathology (Overactivity and Underactivity) that are similar to the conduct problems/externalizing and withdrawal/internalizing dimensions typically found in the child psychopathology assessment literature. (Contains 1 figure, 3 tables and 2 notes.)
