Abstract:

Proactive coping and preventive coping are oriented on certain future rewards and challenges that are not appraised as threats. The objective of the study is to answer the question whether the coping scales are both uni-dimensional constructs as measured by the Proactive Coping Inventory. The underlying factor structure was empirically assessed using exploratory factor analysis in university students enrolled in a traditional face-to-face course delivery format in a medium-sized public university in the Czech Republic. Moreover, item analysis and correlations with other personality variables were carried out. The present study opens discussion about construct validity that has not been tested in the presented educational environment.
