The model was in good consistency with the empirical data. The values consisted of 1) CMIN/df. = 1.669, 2) Comparative Fit Index: CFI = 0.986, 3) Goodness of Fit Index: GFI = 0.935, 4) Adjusted Goodness of Fit Index: AGFI = 0.927, 5) Root Mean Square Error of Approximation: RMSEA= 0.039, 6) Norm fit index: NFI= 0.973, 7) Incremental fit index: IFI = 0.988, and 8) Root Mean Square Residual: RMR = 0.026.
