A new look at the big five factor structure through exploratory structural equation modeling.
NEO instruments are widely used to assess Big Five personality factors, but confirmatory factor analyses (CFAs) conducted at the item level do not support their a priori structure due, in part, toExpand

Exploratory structural equation modeling: an integration of the best features of exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis.
Exploratory factor analysis (EFA) and confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), path analysis, and structural equation modeling (SEM) have long histories in clinical research. Although CFA has largelyExpand

Classical Latent Profile Analysis of Academic Self-Concept Dimensions: Synergy of Person- and Variable-Centered Approaches to Theoretical Models of Self-Concept
In this investigation, we used a classic latent profile analysis (LPA), a person-centered approach, to identify groups of students who had similar profiles for multiple dimensions of academicExpand

Classroom Climate and Contextual Effects: Conceptual and Methodological Issues in the Evaluation of Group-Level Effects
Classroom context and climate are inherently classroom-level (L2) constructs, but applied researchers sometimes—inappropriately—represent them by student-level (L1) responses in single-level modelsExpand

Passion: Does one scale fit all? Construct validity of two-factor passion scale and psychometric invariance over different activities and languages.
The passion scale, based on the dualistic model of passion, measures 2 distinct types of passion: Harmonious and obsessive passions are predictive of adaptive and less adaptive outcomes,Expand
