Cross-Cultural Adaptability 1 Running Head : Cross-Cultural Adaptability Inventory Examining the Psychometric Properties of the Cross-Cultural Adaptability Inventory

  title={Cross-Cultural Adaptability 1 Running Head : Cross-Cultural Adaptability Inventory Examining the Psychometric Properties of the Cross-Cultural Adaptability Inventory},
  author={Susan L. R. Davis and Sara J. Finney and James},
The current study examined the factor structure of the Cross-Cultural Adaptability Inventory (CCAI) to better understand the psychometric properties of this instrument. Subsequent to the current study, the CCAI, which was developed to provide a selfinventory of an individual’s cultural adaptability, had limited study of its measurement characteristics. Therefore, the structure was examined using data collected from a group of university students. Confirmatory factor analysis indicated poor fit… Expand

Theoretic Fit and Empirical Fit: The Performance of Maximum Likelihood versus Generalized Least Squares Estimation in Structural Equation Models.
This study uses simulation to compare the ability of Maximum Likelihood and Generalized Least Squares estimation to provide theoretic fit in models that are parsimonious representations of a true model and finds that empirical fit using GLS was actually superior to that obtained when parameters in the incomplete model were constrained to the true values of the generating model.
