Abstract: 
This study examined the psychometric properties of the Dispositional Flow Scale-2 (DFS-2; 2 Jackson and Eklund, 2002). One thousand five hundred and seventy-eight secondary school 3 students (One thousand and seventy four males, four hundred and eleven females, ninety-three 4 missing) from six schools in Singapore completed the questionnaires. Confirmatory factor analysis 5 (CFA) was used to evaluate the factorial structure of the DFS-2. A nine-first-order factor model was 6 compared to a higher order model with a global flow factor. Support was found for the higher order 7 factor. Multigroup analysis demonstrated invariance of the factor forms, factor loadings, factor 8 variances, and factor covariances across age and sex. The DFS-2 subscales were found to have 9 acceptable reliability estimates, and convergent validity. We conclude that DFS-2 is a valid 10 instrument for assessing global flow experience in Internet gaming.
