Factor Structure Analysis of the Schutte Self-Report Emotional Intelligence Scale on International Students
Ng, Kok-Mun; Wang, Chuang; Kim, Do-Hong; Bodenhorn, Nancy
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v70 n4 p695-709 Aug 2010
The authors investigated the factor structure of the Schutte Self-Report Emotional Intelligence (SSREI) scale on international students. Via confirmatory factor analysis, the authors tested the fit of the models reported by Schutte et al. and five other studies to data from 640 international students in the United States. Results show that although Gignac, Palmer, Manocha, and Stough's modified hypothesized nested model fit the sample data, this model was not parsimonious. As a result, this study proposed a new model that also fitted the data. Results further indicate convergent and concurrent criterion-related validities and reliability of the model. The findings support the use of the modified SSREI for international students. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
