Gardner, Robert C.; MacIntyre, Peter D.
Language Learning, v43 n2 p157-94 Jun 1993
Four issues concerning aspects of the validity of the Attitude/Motivation Test Battery are examined: (1) whether the subtests assess the attributes claimed; (2) the relationship of the subtests to higher order constructs; (3) whether the strategy for measuring affective variables influences correlations with achievement measures; and (4) integrative and instrumental orientation relationships.
