Cognitive Design Principles and the Successful Performer: A Study on Spatial Ability.
Embretson, Susan E.
Journal of Educational Measurement, v33 n1 p29-39 Spr 1996
Comparison of the correlates of two spatial ability tests that used the same item type but different test design principles (cognitive design versus psychometric design) indicated differences in the factorial complexity of the two tests. For the sample of 209 undergraduates, the impact of verbal abilities was substantially reduced by applying the cognitive design principles. (SLD)
