Abstract

The goal of the current study is to evaluate psychometric properties of the Distraction Scale based on 866 teachers. Our findings from confirmatory factor analyses (CFA) supported the existence of two separate, yet related subscales for the Distraction Scale: conventional distraction and tech-related distraction. Regarding the concurrent validity evidence of the Distraction Scale, results indicated that, in line with theoretical expectations, these two subscales were positively related to avoidance and performance goal orientations. Furthermore, these two subscales were negatively associated with mastery goal orientation, interest in learning and using information technology, expectancy belief, and value belief.
