Abstract

Exploratory structural equation modeling (ESEM) solutions have been proposed to represent the factor structures of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in recent literature, yet no studies have assessed those structures in Chinese children. The primary aim of this study was to comprehensively examine the factor structures of the Chinese version of the ADHD Rating Scale-IV (ADHD RS-IV): Home Version. Data on 458 Chinese children aged 3–8 years (boys: 246; 54%) were used to test and compare eleven factor models: confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) models (one-factor, two-factor and three-factor), second-order CFA model, bifactor CFA models (two and three specific factors), ESEM models (two-factor and three-factor), second-order ESEM model, and bifactor ESEM models (two and three specific factors). The results showed that, overall, ESEM models displayed better fit than CFA models. Specifically, the second-order ESEM model with three first-order factors best represented of the ADHD factor structure in our sample. In addition, measurement invariance testing results showed that scalar invariance was established across gender, age and informant groups. Implications for future research are discussed.
Voetnoten
1
Target rotation allows researchers to specify the target loadings in a confirmatory manner (Asparouhov and Muthén 2009). The cross-loadings on non-targeted factors were freely estimated but the estimates were specified to be as close to zero as possible.
 
2
Note that the specific factor loadings are partial regression coefficients reflecting the relationships between the symptoms and their own specific factor while accounting for the g-factor, the negative factor loadings do not necessarily imply that those symptoms are negatively associated with ADHD.
