Objectives: the present study aimed at examining the gender invariance of factorial structure of the academic expectations stress inventory. Methods: a sample of 327 male and 353 female high school students were administered the AESI. Multi group confirmatory factor analysis was used to examine the cross gender validity and invariance of factorial structure of AESI. The results of single group confirmatory factor analysis revealed that the two factor model of AESI. Results: the results of multi group confirmatory factor analysis confirmed the cross gender invariance of factorial structure factor loadings and factor variances and covariances of the AESI across both samples.
