AbstractA new instrument, the Chinese Adolescent Self-Esteem Scales (CASES), was developed to measure the self-concepts of the young people in Hong Kong in seven aspects: social, academic, appearance, moral, family, physical/sport, and general selfesteem. LISREL procedures were utilized to test the extent of factorial invariance for age and gender based on the responses to CASES of 551 Hong Kong adolescents. It was found that CASES possesses the necessary invariance properties for between-group measurement in terms of the number and pattern of the underlying factors, item factor loadings, and inter-factor relations, but not in terms of item uniqueness. Implications of these findings are discussed in terms of the use of CASES and of empirical support for the equivalence of self-concept factor structure for age and gender groups for both Western and non-Western adolescents. Dans cet étude, un nouvel instrument, le CASES (Chinese Adolescent Self-Esteem Scales), est développé pour mesurer sept aspects du concept de soi chez de jeunes personnes de Hong Kong: l'aspect social, l'aspect scolaire, l'apparance, l'aspect moral, la famille, le sport/activité physique et l'estime de soi générale. Des procédures LISREL servent à tester, à partir des réponses données au CASES par 551 adolescents, l'étendue de la variance factorielle pour l'âge et le sexe. Les résultats indiquent qu'en termes de nombre et de patron de facteurs sous-jacents, de poids factoriel des items et des relations entre facteurs mais non en termes d'unicité des items, le CASES possèdent les propriétés d'invariance nécessaires pour la mesure inter-groupe. La discussion examine ces résultats en relation avec l'utilisation du CASES et avec l'appui empirique qu'il fournit à l'équivalence de la structure des facteurs du concept de soi pour l'âge et le sexe, chez les adolescents occidentaux et non occidentaux.
