We tested measurement invariance for the Short Almost Perfect Scale between Hong Kong (N=272) and American (N=351) 6th graders. Results supported metric invariance for indicators of both Standards (perfectionistic strivings) and Discrepancy (perfectionistic concerns). Additional analyses evaluated different response options for the scales and associations with two Grit factors. Copyright © 2018 Association for Psychological Science.
