Abstract

Greenspoon and Saklofske [(1998). Confirmatory factor analysis of the multidimensional Students' Life Satisfaction Scale. Personality and Individual Differences, 25, 965-971] present the results of a confirmatory factor analysis of the multidimensional Students' Life Satisfaction Scale. In this paper, we argue that the results of this analysis do not demonstrate, as the authors claim, that the proposed model is able to satisfactorily account for the data. Recommendations are made regarding more appropriate methods of assessing model fit in confirmatory factor analysis. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
