Pajares, Frank; Hartley, James; Valiante, Giovanni
Measurement and Evaluation in Counseling and Development, v33 n4 p214-21 Jan 2001
Compares writing self-efficacy scales differing in response format among a group of middle school students (N=497). Results reveal that a scale with a 0-100 format was psychometrically stronger than a scale with a traditional Likert format. Also reveals that children at the middle school level can indeed make a discriminating judgment using a 1-100 scale. (Contains 40 references and 3 tables.) (Author/GCP)
