  1. χ2 = Chi square test of model fit; TLI = Tucker-Lewis index; CFI = comparative fit index; RMSEA = root mean square error of approximation; Note that self-efficacy and practical relevance have only two manifest indicators, wherefore no multilevel confirmatory factor analytic measurement model was set up and no model-fit indices are reported
