    measurement model, confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) was performed. The measurement properties resulted from CFA are summarized in Table 3. In this study, the chi-square statistic indicated the overall model was not fit very well (x^2 = 527.397, p < .001). However, The value of the normed chi-square static to sample size, showed that the model fit the data well with x^2/df at 2.028, which was lower than the recommended threshold of 3. In addition, the RMSEA value is .057 and CFI value is .955 in our model. According to Hu & Bentler (1999), The RMSEA ranges from 0 to 1, with smaller values indicating better model fit. A value of .06 or less is indicative of acceptable model fit. Also, CFI (Compratative fit index) values range from 0 to 1, with larger values indicating better fit; a CFI value of .90 or larger is generally considered to indicate acceptable model fit and satisfactory fits were achieved. Because our model’s fit index value is not exceeding the thresholds, we could say that our measurement model has a good fit to the data. The results of standardized factor loadings, reliability, and convergent validity are presented in Table 3. Overall, the seven variables showed good fit. The standardized loadings for all 29 items ranged…

    Self-Perception of Adequacy in and Predilection for Physical Activity (CSAPPA) scale. The CSAPPA is a 20-item, self-report questionnaire that has demonstrated a high test-retest reliability as well as strong predictive and construct validity (Cairney, J., et al, 2007).

    Introduction The Bem Sex Role Inventory (BSRI; Bem, 1974) explores and measures the concept of androgyny using two factors: masculinity and femininity. The instrument has three subscales to measure the construct of androgyny: masculinity, femininity and social desirability (Bem, 1974). The original scale had 20 items each for these three subscales for a total of 60 items. Bem (1979) reduced the number of scale items to 10 for each subscale, maintaining two factors. Other researchers found…
