The Me and My School Questionnaire (M&MS) is a brief self-report measure of elementary school students’ social, emotional, and behavioral challenges. This study examined its factor structure and measurement invariance for elementary school students in the United States (U.S.; N = 784) and the U.K. (N = 538). Results replicated the two-factor structure. Convergent and discriminant validity, test-retest reliability, and measurement invariance for girls and boys were examined in the U.S. sample. Partial measurement invariance was established when comparing factor structures of the U.S. and U.K. samples. Implications for mental health monitoring, and for comparative international research are discussed.
