Replication of the Learning Behaviors Scale Factor Structure with an Independent Sample
Canivez, Gary L.; Willenborg, Erin; Kearney, Amanda
Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, v24 n2 p97-111 2006
This study reports on the replication of the four-factor structure and the internal consistency of the Learning Behaviors Scale (LBS) with an independent sample of 241 students in Grades 1 through 7. Internal consistency estimates were as high or higher than those obtained with the standardization sample. Substantial replication of the four LBS factors (Competence Motivation, Attitude Toward Learning, Attention/Persistence, and Strategy/Flexibility) was found. Most items in the study were associated with the identical factor found with the standardization sample. Coefficients of congruence tested the factorial invariance and resulted in "good" to "excellent" matches to the exploratory factor analysis results based on the LBS standardization sample. Furthermore, three of the five LBS items that cross-loaded in this study were also items that cross-loaded in the standardization sample and did so on the same factors. Substantial evidence was found for the internal consistency and construct (factorial) validity of the LBS. (Contains 5 tables.)
