Abstract

The construct validity of eight psychometric scales designed to measure the experiences that recreationists desire was investigated. A multitrait‐multimethod analysis was performed employing two Likert‐style formats, fractionation scaling and paired comparisons. The construct validity of seven of eight scales studied was verified. Implications are made concerning the use of these instruments in order to provide valid information for recreation research and planning.
