Batson, Schoenrade, and Ventis (1993) conceptualized their 12-item Religion as Quest Scale (Q Scale) as a multidimensional construct measured with three subscales. Flere, Edwards, and Klanjsek (2008) conducted a confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) of the scale and found support for the notion of Batson and colleagues that the Q Scale is composed of three separate dimensions or factors. But because of both inconsistencies in their results across samples and their alteration of placement of scale items across dimensions of the Q Scale, further research is needed to replicate and/or verify, and also extend their findings.
