A Factor Comparison of Old and New MCAT Scales.
Jones, Robert F.; Thomae-Forgues, Maria
Journal of Medical Education, v56 n3 p161-66 Mar 1981
The old Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) and the New MCAT were compared by factor-analyzing the scores of a sample of 1,484 examinees who took both tests during 1976-77. Three common factors are interpreted: a general science quantitative factor, verbal ability, and interpretation skills. Variances are noted and implications of the data for admissions use are discussed. (Author/JMD)
