Testing Structural Invariance of the Achievement Goal Questionnaire in American, Chinese, and Dutch College Students
Sun, Huaping; Hernandez, Diley
Measurement and Evaluation in Counseling and Development, v45 n4 p257-269 Oct 2012
This study investigates the structural invariance of the Achievement Goal Questionnaire (AGQ) in American, Chinese, and Dutch college students. Using confirmatory factor analyses (CFA), the authors found evidence for the four-factor structure of achievement goals in all three samples. Subsequent multigroup CFAs supported structural invariance of the AGQ across the samples. (Contains 5 tables.)
