To test for discriminant validity, we correlated the TECSE subscales with political extremism and trust in media.
Construct validity was examined by testing the already well-documented association between SE and polarization using the new TECSE scales.
In this study, convergent validation was tested by comparing the current approach (our TECSE scale) with the retrospective reports approach (Clay et al., 2013), on the one hand, and with an observed behavior indicator, on the other.
The first noteworthy finding is that, contrary to expectations, our proposed TECSE scale seemed to be composed of two dimensions--one focusing on ideologically congruent SE and the other on selective avoidance of incongruent materials.
The second study was meant to demonstrate that when faced with a choice between two ideologically opposed articles, people selecting the article that is congruent with their own views would rank higher on TECSE than those selecting the incongruent article.
In the third part, they were requested to complete the TECSE items.
The TECSE items were identical to those used in Study 1 (Cronbach's alpha = .72, M = 2.57, SD = 0.80).
