A Path Analysis of Social Problem-Solving as a Predictor of White Racial Identity
Carr, Amanda G.; Caskie, Grace I. L.
Journal of College Student Development, v51 n6 p622-636 Nov-Dec 2010
This study examined (a) whether a developmental model or a model in which all subscales' measurement errors are correlated best explains the relationships among White racial identity (WRI) statuses, and (b) social problem-solving (SPS) skills as a predictor of WRI. Path analysis was conducted with a sample of 255 White undergraduate students from a private university. Results showed that a correlated errors model had better fit than a developmental model of WRI. SPS was examined as a predictor of WRI statuses, using a correlated errors measurement model. Three of the hypothesized relationships between SPS and WRI were significant. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
