Abstract:
The purpose of the study was to examine the factor structure of the Social Skills Scale of the Social Skills Rating System-Parent (SSRS-P) (Gresham & Elliott, 1990) on a group of Navajo American parents. The SSRS-P Social Skills Scale was administered to a parent or a close relative of 218 Navajo children aged five through 8 years to assess children's social skills at home setting. The four-factor structure of the scale administered Gresham and Elliott (1990) was tested on this data using Confirmatory Factor Analysis. The estimation results demonstrated that the four-factor structure was not supported by the data. Modifications to the four-factor structure models resulted in five factors. The estimation results indicated that the five factors fit the data very well, suggesting that the factor structure of the scale may differ for this population.
