The Research Outcome Expectations Questions (ROEQ) is a measure of outcomes one might expect to occur as a result of engaging in research activities. Though the ROEQ has good internal consistency, the underlying factor structure of the ROEQ had not yet been examined. Exploratory factor analyses were completed on 183 doctoral students in counseling psychology and counselor education. A one-factor model was identified. The one-factor model was submitted to confirmatory factor analyses using an independent sample of 284 doctoral students and was found to be a good fit of the data. The predictive validity of the revised-ROEQ appears to be adequate. Implications for using the ROEQ in future research studies are discussed.
