Validation Of the Ambivalent Sexism Inventory in a Russian Sample
2018
The main goal of this study was to validation of ambivalent sexism inventory (ASI) in a Russian-language sample. The sample comprised 709 participants (58% of women and 42% of men) aged 13 to 67 years (M = 22.3, SD = 6.3). The psychometric properties of the inventory were tested in the framework of the IRT theory, as one of the methods of validation. As the best model for data analysis, the Rating Scale Model (RSM) model with a sequential approach has been selected. Psychometric analysis showed a high suitability of the inventory for evaluating ambivalent sexism. The verification of the factor structure by means of confirmatory factor analysis confirmed the hypothesis of a two-factor structure of the inventory (factors of benevolent and hostile sexism), in which the factor of benevolent sexism consists from 3 subfactors. The invariance of the questionnaire was estimated in 5 demographic groups. Part of the tasks observed incorrect functioning (DIF) in relation to different groups of participants.
