Aggressiveness, Anger, Hostility, Partial Least Square, Physical Aggression, Verbal Aggression.



The purpose of this study is to examine the aggressiveness scale measurement model, to test the construct validity and constructively scale of aggressiveness, and to find the forms that form the construct scale of aggressiveness. Aggressiveness is measured in four forms, namely physical aggression, verbal aggression, anger and hostility. The data collection method uses an aggressiveness scale. The subjects in this study were 90 students of class IX in SMK X and SMK Y. This study was analysed using the Smart PLS 3.2.0 program with reflective constructs through the 2nd order CFA. Based on the results of the analysis of the construct validity and the construct reliability, the forms and indicators that make up the aggressiveness are declared valid and reliable. This shows that all existing forms and indicators are able to reflect aggressiveness. The most dominant form of aggression that can reflect aggressiveness is physical aggression and the lowest reflects aggression is anger. Thus the model can be accepted because the theory that describes aggressiveness is in accordance with empirical data obtained.
