This study aimed to examine the consistency of the structural relationship model in which developed from related theories, previous studies, and empirical data, respectively. The study also investigated factor loading of main components, subcomponents, and indicators. The population in this study was primary school principals under Office of the Basic Education Commission in Thailand. Collected data were used by multi-stage random sampling to get 660 samples. The data were analyzed by using statistical application and AMOS program. The results were consistent with hypothesis. The model of which developed from related theories and previous studies were consistent with empirical data based on the following values, e.g. relative Chi-square (CMIN/DF), Root Mean Square Error of Approximation (RMSEA), Goodness-of-Fit Index (GFI), Adjusted Goodness-of-Fit Index (AGFI), Comparative Fit Index (CFI), and Normed Fit Index (NFI). Both first and second order confirmatory factors were also analyzed. Fator loading of main components was 0.90-1.47 which was higher than 0.70. Factor loading of sub-components was 0.73-2.13. Floading of indicators was 0.74-2.77 which was higher than 0.30, respectively.
