New paper on measurement invariance testing
The paper “Assessing the Measurement Invariance of the Four-dimensional Cultural Intelligence Scale Across Countries: A composite model approach” authored by Christopher Schlägel and Marko Sarstedt (both OvGU), has been accepted for publication in European Management Journal. In their paper, the authors assess the measurement invariance of the commonly used four-dimensional cultural intelligence scale across five countries (China, France, Germany, Turkey, and the U.S.) by means of a composite model logic, using partial least squares structural equation modeling (PLS-SEM). The results question the scale’s dimensionality concerning China and France, and reveal an item set that is invariant across the other countries. The findings indicate that researchers should be aware of the potential lack of measurement invariance regarding the standard measurement of cultural intelligence.
