Bully-Victimization Scale: Using Rasch Modeling in the Analysis of a Qualitative Scale
Lehto, Marybeth
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (Denver, CO, Apr 30-May 4, 2010)
The primary purpose of this study was to determine whether the data from the qualitative study fit Rasch model requirements for the definition of a measure, as well as to address concern in the extant literature regarding the appropriate number of items needed in analysis to assure unidimensionality. The self-report victimization scale was developed and administered as part of an overall school engagement instrument in a repeated measures design methodology. Participants were a convenience sample of 670 ninth grade students. Grouping was pre-determined by the school's student information system managed by the registrar. Results indicated validity was established and appropriate scale format use. However, reliability and unidimensionality were questionable. Recommendations are included.
