Abstract

 This study was launched aiming at evaluating the psychometric features (validity and reliability) of the NEED FOR CLOSURE Scale (NFCS) in high school students. For this purpose, 392 students (168 male and 224 female) of Shiraz high schools were selected by multi stage cluster sampling method.They, then, responded to the self-report NEED FOR CLOSURE scale developed by DeBacker & Crows on. To assess the construct validity of this scale, confirmatory factor analysi sand INTERNAL CONSISTENCY was used. Moreover, Cronbach's alpha coefficient was used to evaluate the reliability of the scale.Generally, the goodness of fit indices of the confirmatory factor analysis model indicated a relatively good fit of the data with factor structure of the NEED FOR CLOSURE scale, after deleting some items, confirming the existence of preference for structure and preference for certainty as two components of NEED FOR CLOSURE. Also, INTERNAL CONSISTENCY method indicates the construct validity of the scale. The Cronbach's alpha coefficient indicates the stability of the measurement of the scale. Based on these results, one can use the NEED FOR CLOSURE scale developed by DeBacker& Crow son as an acceptable measurement tool in the study of high school students inside the country.
