dc.description.abstract The current study examined the factor structure and the internal consistency of the Schutte Self-Report Emotional Intelligence (SSREI) scale in two samples of Greek pre-service Physical Education (PE) teachers (Sample 1 n = 516; Sample 2 n = 335). Method: Data were collected through a pencil-paper survey. Multiple confirmatory factor analyses were conducted to test several proposed factor models from previous studies, as well as measurement invariance across gender. Reliability of the scale was measured with Cronbach a coefficients. Results: The analysis showed that the Ng et al. (2010) two-level factor model fit the current data best, while the exclusion of the scale's reverse coded items made the current model structure more stable and interpretable, ultimately resulting in a higher order model with four factors. Conclusion: The proposed emotional intelligence model was complex with a high order factor. We further suggested either to rephrase the three items including negations to a positive meaning, or to remove these from the scale, to increase the validity and reliability scores. Implications of the study and usefulness of SSREI scale among pre-service PE teachers are further discussed. en
