Learning Behaviors Scale and Canadian Youths: Factorial Validity Generalization and Comparisons to the U.S. Standardization Sample
Canivez, Gary L.; Beran, Tanya N.
Canadian Journal of School Psychology, v26 n3 p193-208 Sep 2011
The factor structure of the Learning Behaviors Scale (LBS) was examined with a sample of 393 randomly selected Canadian youths in a large western city. An identical four-factor structure was observed for the Canadian sample as was obtained in the standardization sample of U.S. youths and with another American sample. Principal axis exploratory factor analysis with equamax rotations produced factor structure coefficients that were very similar to those from the standardization sample, and factor invariance estimates corresponded to estimates from the standardization sample. Also, LBS raw scores from the Canadian sample did not meaningfully differ from the U.S. standardization sample raw scores. (Contains 1 figure and 4 tables.)
