The Measurement of Academic Interests: Part I. Characteristics of the Academic Interest Measures.
Katz, Martin R.; And Others
Data presented in this study of the Academic Interest Measures (AIM) include score distributions for a national sample of high school juniors grouped by sex, ability, and curriculum (effects of socioeconomic status were found to be negligible); relationships between AIM and many other variables, such as ability test scores, students' ratings of their own interests, definiteness of occupational plans, years of post-secondary education planned, scores on information scales, and participation in nonclassroom activities; scale intercorrelations and factor analyses; internal consistency of scores and stability over periods of time. The psychometric properties of AIM and evidence for its construct validity suggest that it may be useful as a criterion measure. A self-scoring form of AIM is appended. For Grade 11 norms for AIM, see TM 000 671. (Author/AG)
