The main purpose of this study was to examine psychometric properties and construct validity of the Academic Self-Regulation Questionnaire (ASRQ). Subjects were Italian pupils who took part in PIRLS 2011 Field-Trial. A multi-group confirmatory factor analysis (MCFA) was performed to test the scale theoretical structure and the measurement invariance across gender. Moreover, construct validity was assessed examining the structure of latent correlations among the subscales and by means of structural equation modeling. Results of MCFA were consistent with the hypothesized scale structure and showed measurement invariance across gender, moreover evidence from SEM supported the construct validity of the ASRQ. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
