A Validation Study of an Instrument Designed to Measure Types of Learning: A Structural Equation Modeling Approach
Rugutt, John; Chemosit, Caroline C.
Educational Research Quarterly, v33 n4 p24-36 Jun 2010
This study reports the results of a validation study of student assessment of types of learning (ToL) scale, a measure of teaching effectiveness based on student summative judgments. The study investigated the factor structure of ToL and how consistent the factor structure held across multiple groups. This study used measures developed by Ellett, Loup, Culross, McMullen and Rugutt, 1997 and data from two independent administrations, involving 1096 and 1536 students from two semesters respectively. The results showed that the overall instrument possesses good internal consistency and adequate construct validity across the two samples. The SEM analyses with LISREL (Joreskog & Sorbom, 1996) methodology revealed that ToL consists of 2 latent variables that are stable over time and consistent over different groups.
