TO BETTER IDENTIFY AND UNDERSTAND HIGH SCHOOL FAILURES. FINAL REPORT.
LAFORGE, ROLFE; POLK, KENNETH
STATISTICAL MODELS WERE USED TO STUDY THE NATURE OF HIGH SCHOOL "FAILURES". THE STUDY (1) COMPARED THE DEGREE TO WHICH FAILURE COULD BE PREDICTED BY MULTIVARIABLE AND CONFIGURAL MODELS AND (2) CONSTRUCTED SCALES BY MEANS OF TRADITIONAL PSYCHOMETRIC ITEM ANALYSIS AND CROSS-VALIDATION AND BY MEANS OF STRUCTURAL ITEM ANALYSIS. THE SAMPLE CONSISTED OF 819 MALES. ANALYSES INCLUDED (1) RELATIONSHIPS AMONG CRITERIA, (2) RELATIONSHIPS AMONG INDEPENDENT VARIABLES AND CRITERIA, (3) SUPPRESSOR VARIABLES, (4) MODERATOR VARIABLES, (5) CONSTRUCTION OF COMPOSITE SCALES, (6) LINEAR MULTIPLE REGRESSION ANALYSES, (7) SELECTOR VARIABLES, AND (8) CONFIGURAL MODEL ANALYSIS. THE RESULTS INDICATED THAT CONFIGURAL EFFECTS INVOLVING SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS DID EXIST. ALSO THE STABILITY OF THE REGRESSION MODEL UNDER CROSS-VALIDATION WAS GREATER THAN EXPECTED FOR A CONFIGURAL MODEL. (RS)
