Abstract

The notion of portability of constructs measured by psychometric instruments is introduced. Psychometric investigations by means of Principal Components Analyses, Item Analyses and calculation of Cronbach Alpha on the items of two generally used instruments are described. The results indicate that the constructs measured by the Kanungo Job Involvement Questionnaire and the Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire as well as the instruments themselves seem to be robust as far as portability between the Unites States of America and South Africa is concerned.
