Measuring student responsibility in Physical Education: Examinantion of CSR and PSR Models

WT Hsu, Y-H Pan, H-S Chou, FJ-H Lu

Abstract


The Contextual Self-Responsibility Questionnaire (CSRQ) and Personal and Social Responsibility Questionnaire (PSRQ) were developed to meausre student responsibility within the field of physical education. In the present study, the factor structure of the CSRQ and PSRQ was examined. Unlike previous structure examination studies, it was hypothesised that two models would not fit the data due to the existing limitations of the CSRQ and PSRQ. The results of the confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) showed an extremely poor model fit to the data. In conclusion, supportive psychometric evidence of these two models could not be provided. It is, therefore, necessary to develop a new instrument for measuring student responsibility within the field of physical education.


Key words: Contextual Self-Responsibility Questionnaire (CSRQ); Personal and Social Responsibility Questionnaire (PSRQ); Factor structure scale; Validity
