Abstract


The purpose of this research is to assess the fitness of a measurement model using Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA). A survey methodology using simple random sampling was carried out covering the 300 students. A structured questionnaire using the entrepreneurial intention as a subject was then distributed to 300 students. Then the confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) in structural equation modeling was employed to assess the fitness of a measurement model. The results implied that the fitness indexed of a measurement model achieved the required level. Based on this study, it revealed that all the fitness indexes achieved the level of acceptance. The measurement model is accepted. The model is fit to the data. It can be assembled into the structural model for further analysis.

Author Keywords: Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA), Measurement Model, Structural Equation Modeling (SEM), Fitness Indexes, Entrepreneurial Intention.
