Studied the dimensionality of responses to the Study Skills Self-Efficacy Scale (M. Ramirez and S. Owen, 1991) using exploratory factor analysis and investigated the use of Rasch measures in differentiating between groups of students who report being academically successful or at risk. Results for 550 college students indicate that responses define three related dimensions, and that Rasch measures were able to differentiate between the groups. (SLD)
