HERRERO, Juan. Confirmatory Factor Analysis in the study of the Structure and Stability of Assessment Instruments: An example with the Self-Esteem Questionnaire (CA-14). Psychosocial Intervention [online]. 2010, vol.19, n.3, pp.289-300. ISSN 2173-4712.

This research presents a study of the factor structure and temporal stability of the Self-Esteem Questionnaire (CA-14) using Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) techniques. The paper pretends to offer a potential guide to researchers, paying special attention to data requirements, estimation methods suggested in the literature, recommended fit indices and other circumstances that need to be taken into account when estimating CFA models. Also, various methodological strategies are shown during the implementation of CFA models: correlated errors, use of parameter constraints, multigroup analysis, etc

Keywords : Confirmatory Factor Analysis; multigroup analysis; self-esteem; adult general population.
