Confirmatory factor analysis of the University Resident Environment Scale (URES) using items parcels and two independent samples of university students illustrates a general procedure for verifying the subscale structure of multiscale inventories. Analyses by LISREL VI of 30 parcels representing 10 URES subscales validated all scales except Student Influence, which was not supported in either sample. Features of the proposed confirmatory strategy, as well as some problems that may occur, are discussed briefly.
