An-Najah University Journal for Research - B (Humanities)


This study aims at investigating validity and reliability indicators of the cognitive complexity test amongst under graduated students at Yarmouk University. The scale was translated to Arabic language, and edited to the Jordanian environment. It was applied to a random sample of (294) Yarmouk university students through which validity and reliability were investigated. The results of the study revealed relevant psychometric properties. The factor analysis also reveals three factors which explain (%53.243) of the total variance. It showed also no difference in the factorial structure of the Jordanian scale compared with the original one. The study ended with some recommendations, such as: conducting more studies on other environments to investigate its psychometric properties on other populations and using this form to reveal the cognitive complexity amongst other samples, and with other variables.
