Abstract

This study investigated the psychometric properties of the Perceived Social Support-Family and -Friends Scales, the Family Valuing of Education Scale, and the Mentoring Scale with Latina/o and non-Hispanic White college freshmen. When scores for 112 Latina/o and 597 non-Hispanic White freshmen were examined, strong reliability was found for the Perceived Social Support Scale scores and acceptable reliability for the Family Valuing of Education and Mentoring Scale scores for both groups. Evidence of concurrent validity was found for the Perceived Social Support-Friend and Mentoring Scale scores for Latina/o students. Evidence of construct and concurrent validity was found for both of the Social Support scales and the Mentoring Scale scores for non-Hispanic White students.
