Zusammenfassung: The Questionnaire for the Content-differentiated Assessment of Attitudes toward the Computer (QCAAC) is a recently developed multi-dimensional instrument differing from most of the instruments in the field which are constructed inductively on the basis of quite heterogenous item pools. In contrast, the eight scales of the QCAAC are based on three a-priori distinctions: (1) With regard to potential manners of computer use the computer as an instrument for learning and working is differentiated from the computer as an instrument for entertainment and communication. (2) Evaluations referring to personal experience with the computer are separated from evaluations referring to the consequences for society which are attributed to the computer technology. (3) Finally, the distinction between the evaluative aspects "computer as a beneficial tool (useful technology)" and "computer as an autonomous entity (uncontrollable technology)" is adopted from Brock & Sulsky (1994). Each of the eight scales of the QCAAC relates to one of the 2 x 2 x 2 = 8 classes of beliefs that can be derived by combination of the three distinctions mentioned above. Previous studies have provided evidence for the reliability and validity of the German version of the QCAAC. The QCAAC exists in a paper-and-pencil-form as well as in an online-version, which have proven to be psychometrically equivalent. The aim of the present online study (N = 148) was to test if the reliabilities and the factorial structure of an English version of the QCAAC parallel those of the German version. Reliabilites were the same for both English and German versions, and multi-sample confirmatory factor analyses revealed no differences in the factorial structure. Thus, the assumption of psychometric equivalence of both versions was corroborated.
