A Study of the Validity of Self-Reported Measures of Academic Growth.
Pohlmann, John T.; Beggs, Donald L.
This study was undertaken to examine the relationship between self-reported and pre-post measures of academic growth. Self-reported and pre-post measures were obtained in three areas, simple cognitive, complex cognitive and attitudinal. The subjects were 162 graduate students enrolled in six different graduate courses. Partial correlations relating self-reported measures of growth to post test performance on measures of achievement (simple and complex cognitive) and attitude, controlling for pre-test performance, indicated that self-reported measures of academic growth were primarily related to growth in attitudes toward the subject matter of a course.
