ITEM RESPONSE ANALYSES OF THE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES SURVEY 9TH GRADE STUDENT QUESTIONNAIRE.
WEINFELD, FREDERIC D.; AND OTHERS
THIS REPORT PRESENTS THE ANALYSIS OF QUESTIONNAIRE ITEM RESPONSES FROM THE NINTH-GRADE STUDENT QUESTIONNAIRE ADMINISTERED AS PART OF THE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES SURVEY. THE ANALYSES WERE PERFORMED TO DOCUMENT SOME OF THE BASIC DATA FROM THE SURVEY, TO MAKE THEM AVAILABLE TO INTERESTED EDUCATIONAL RESEARCHERS, AND TO REWORK THE BASIC DATA FOR SUBSEQUENT ANALYSES. THE ANALYSES PRESENT IN TABULAR FORM THE NUMBER AND PERCENT OF NINTH-GRADE STUDENTS WHO RESPONDED TO EACH QUESTIONNAIRE ITEM ALTERNATIVE, TOGETHER WITH THE AVERAGE COMPOSITE TEST SCORE FOR THAT GROUP. THESE DATA PRESENT AN OVERVIEW OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE NINTH-GRADE STUDENT. SEVERAL MAJOR PROBLEMS WERE ENCOUNTERED IN ANALYZING THE DATA WHICH HAD TO BE SOLVED BEFORE ANY NEW ANALYSES COULD BE MADE. THIS REPORT ADDRESSES ITSELF TO THE SOLUTION OF THESE PROBLEMS--(1) REDUCING THE NUMBER OF CRITERIA, (2) SCALING DISCRETE CATEGORICAL INFORMATION, (3) PROVIDING FOR NON-LINEAR OR CURVILINEAR SCALES, AND (4) ESTIMATING MISSING DATA. EA 001 194 IS A RELATED DOCUMENT. (HW)
