Testing Measurement Invariance of Synthesizing Mind Model of Thai Students: Multi-group Analysis

Abstract

Nowadays, information flows quickly without any limitations on distance. Humans possessing synthesizing mind do not waste time when synthesizing the deluge of data, are able to select useful data and avoid data causing danger. This study aimed to examine the consistency of the synthesizing mind model with empirical data and to study invariance of the synthesizing mind model of students classified in accordance with the demographical variable of gender. The research sample consisted of 580 lower secondary school students. The research instrument was a 30 item self-report survey on synthesizing mind developed according to the 4 factors of synthesizing mind including access, synthesize, evaluate, and create. An analysis of Second Order Confirmatory Factor showed that the synthesizing mind model is consistent with empirical data. There was no invariance of the synthesizing mind model between the groups of male and female students.
