The purpose of this study was to assess the structural validity of the Leisure Satisfaction Scale proposed by Beard and Ragheb (l980) as applied to Chinese adults. A Chinese version of the Leisure Satisfaction scale (short form) was used to measure the levels of leisure satisfaction of 455 Chinese adults in Hong Kong. Confirmatory factor analysis was conducted using structural equation modeling (LISREL 8.7) to test the six-factor model structure. The six dimensions of leisure satisfaction were Psychological, Educational, Social, Relaxational, Physiological, and Environmental Satisfaction factors. The findings of the study suggested that the six-factor structure proposed by Beard and Ragheb fit the data of the Hong Kong adults. However, one item "I engage in leisure activities because I like doing them" has a very weak factor loading on the Relaxation factor and did not seem to effectively represent relaxation satisfaction.
本研究之目的是評估由Beard and Ragheb (1980)設想及制定的休間滿意量表在結構上之可靠性。是次研究以休間滿意量表(中文版)來量度四百五十五名香港成年人對休間的滿意程度，並以結構方程式(LISREL 8.7)驗證六個休閒滿意因素的結構模式。此六個休閒滿意因素分別為：與心理相關的滿意因素、敎育相關的滿意因素、社會相關的滿意因素、鬆弛相關的滿意因素、生理相關的滿意因素及環境相關的滿意因素。是次研究發現，Beard and Ragheb 所提出的六個休閒滿意因素的結構與香港成年人的數據吻合。然而，「我參與休間活動是因為我喜歡投入那些活動」這一項在與鬆弛相關的因素中之因素負載量極低。因此，這項目 似乎未能有效地反映與鬆弛相關的滿足感。
