Abstract This research examined,construct validity evidence for the College Self-Efficacy Inventory by investigating the dimensionality of the measure, assessing the generalizabilityof the dimensionality, and examining external validity evidence. Four theoretically-based models were first tested using two freshmen samples; none fit. Model modifications yielded an adequately- fitting 15-item, three-factor model. Model-data fit was then replicated in an independent, upperclassmen,sample; local misfit was not as problematic. External validity evidence for the CSEI was also gathered by examining the relationships between CSEI subscale scores and theoretically-related criteria. Data supported most hypothesized relationships. Continued refinement of the CSEI and the construct is recommended.
