An Exploratory Assessment of the Validity of the Community College Survey of Men (CCSM): Implications for Serving Veteran Men
De La Garza, Thomas; Wood, J. Luke; Harris, Frank, III
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v39 n3 p293-298 2015
The Community College Survey of Men (CCSM) assesses predictors of student success for historically underrepresented and underserved men in community colleges. The instrument is designed to inform programming and service-delivery for male students (Wood & Harris, 2013). While the instrument was designed for community college men in general, this validation study sought to determine the utility of this instrument as a needs assessment tool for veteran men as well. Analyses identified five constructs with strong factor loadings and internal consistency, they included action control, locus of control, degree utility, self-efficacy, and intrinsic interest. The CCSM is recommended as a tool to better address the needs of veteran men.
