Comparing the goodness of fit between the original and reconfigured model (Table 7), the same goodness of fit values analyzed in the original model including chi-square, probability, comparative fit index, Tucker-Lewis index, root mean squared error of approximation (RMSEA), CMIN/ (degrees of freedom), and squared multiple correlations (R2) were assessed.

________________________________________________________________

The overall chi-square for the model significantly decreased from 1162 to 635, indicating a strengthening of the goodness of fit. The comparative fit index increased significantly from .80 to .88 while the Tucker-Lewis Index also significantly increased from .77 to .86, both indicating an increase in the goodness of fit with the reconfigured model. The root mean squared error of approximation dropped .2 from .91 to .89. CMIN/ (degrees of
