The purpose of this study was to determine whether theoretically relevant sources of coaching efficacy could predict the measures derived from the Coaching Efficacy Scale II-High School Teams (CES II-HST). Data were collected from head coaches of high school teams in the United States (N = 799). The analytic framework was a multiple-group confirmatory factor analysis with ordered-categorical indicators and observed cmiariates. Applying this framework to the conceptual model of coaching efficacy (CMCE) resulted, in a statistical model equivalent to a multiple-group multivariate regression with latent outcomes. Results provided evidence for the ability of measures derived from the CES II-HST to be predicted by theoretically -relevant sources of coaching efficacy and suggested modifications to the CMCE.
