Paper Title :
Factorial Structure of Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale in Arab Populations: The Effect of Negatively Worded Items

Author :Hamzeh Dodeen

Article Citation :Hamzeh Dodeen , (2023 ) " Factorial Structure of Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale in Arab Populations: The Effect of Negatively Worded Items " , International Journal of Management and Applied Science (IJMAS) , pp. 5-7, Volume-9,Issue-7

Abstract : This study analyzed how negatively worded items affect the factor structure of the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSES) in Arab Populations. A sample of 480 students from a medium-sized public university in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) participated in the study. The statistical analysis used exploratory factor analysis (EFA) with Principal Axis Factoring (PAF) as an extraction method, confirmatory factor analysis (CFA), and internal reliability analysis. The results showed that the scale has two factors (bidimensional): The first one has an eigenvalue of 2.56 and could explain 25.58% of the total variance while the second factor has an eigenvalue of 1.60 and could explain 16.03% of the total variance. The inter-factor correlation between the two factors was .15. Examining the items and their loadings on each factor revealed that the first factor consists of the positively worded items while the second factor consists of the negatively worded items. The internal reliability of the whole scale (10 items) was less than the reliability of the negatively worded items (5 items). The study concluded that negatively worded items undesirably impact the RSES factor structure and internal reliability. Keywords - Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale, Negatively Worded Items, Factor Structure, Factor Analysis, Reliability.
