What do students feel in school and how do we measure them?: Examining the psychometric properties of the S-AEQ-F

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlespeer-review

Abstract

The objective of this study was to examine the reliability and construct validity of the Short Version of the Academic Emotions Questionnaire for Filipinos (S-AEQ-F) which is an adaptation of the Academic Emotions Questionnaire (AEQ; Pekrun, Goetz, & Perry, 2005). The S-AEQ-F measures eight discrete academic emotions in the learning context: anger, anxiety, boredom, enjoyment, hope, hopelessness, pride, and shame. Filipino high school students (N = 1,121) completed the S-AEQ-F. Responses to this questionnaire were shown to have good internal structure and support was affirmed for its construct validity in terms of its factorial structure and correlations with other educational outcomes. Results of the confirmatory factor analysis supported the original two higher order factor structures with eight underlying discrete emotions. Taken together, this study sustained the utility of the S-AEQ-F for Filipino respondents. Copyright © 2010 KITE E-Learning Solutions.
