An attempt at revisiting the factor structure of the Dysexecutive Questionnaire in the Chinese setting
MetadataShow full item record
This study examined the factor structure of the Chinese version of the Dysexecutive Questionnaire (DEX) in a large nonclinical sample of college students (n = 1,586). All participants completed the self‐report version of the DEX. An exploratory factor analysis was first performed on a sub‐sample (randomly split, n = 766) and produced a four‐factor model (Volition, Intentionality, Inhibition, and Abstract Problem‐Solving), which was similar to previous models reported in Western samples. In addition, a series of confirmatory factor analyses was conducted on the remaining sample (n = 820). The findings suggested that a four‐factor solution of the self‐report DEX might better explain the latent structure in the present healthy Chinese sample.
