Concurrent Validity between the California Psychological Inventory-Revised and the Student Adaptation to College Questionnaire
The present study examined the concurrent validity of the newest version of the California Psychological Inventory (CPI) with the Student Adaptation College Questionnaire. The sample consisted of 142 college students at a midwestern, technically oriented university. Significant differences in the expected directions were found between higher and lower adjusted students with regard to Gough's (1987) new control (p < .001), flexibility (p < .003), and consensuality (p < .005) factors and also with respect to the new norm-favoring (p < .01) and self-realization (p < .008) thematic vectors of the revised CPI.
