Factor Analytic Scales of a Normative Form of the EPPS (Edwards Personal Preference Schedule).
Sherman, Richard C.; Poe, Charles A.
The 135 distinct items from the Edward Personal Preference Schedule (EPPS) were arranged in a five choice Likert Format and presented to 315 subjects. Factor scales were constructed and correlated with other measures of personality and academic ability. Differences between males and females were tested for significance. The results suggest that reliable and meaningful measurement of each of the four underlying dimensions in the normative form of the EPPS is possible with the four factor analytic scales (interpersonal orientation, assertive aggressiveness, persistent dependency, and doing-thinking) developed in this investigation.
