Abstract

This article employs confirmatory factor analysis to evaluate the factorial validity and the cross-national comparability of the UTAUT constructs with respect to mobile learning in higher education in four Caribbean countries. Except for the measurement of one factor, the UTAUT constructs exhibit adequate reliability and validity. Though full metric invariance is not achieved, cross-national comparisons of the regression relationships among the factors are still possible. In addition, non-invariant item intercepts also affect the comparisons of the factor means. Partial scalar invariance is required.
