Assessment of Dimensionality in Social Science Subtest
Ozbek Bastug, Ozlem Yesim
Educational Sciences: Theory and Practice, v12 n1 p382-385 Win 2012
Most of the literature on dimensionality focused on either comparison of parametric and nonparametric dimensionality detection procedures or showing the effectiveness of one type of procedure. There is no known study to shown how to do combined parametric and nonparametric dimensionality analysis on real data. The current study is aimed to fill this missing part in the literature by illustrating how to do combined parametric and nonparametric dimensionality analysis. The purpose of this study is to describe dimensionality structure of social science subtest of the Secondary School Institutions Student Selection and Placement Test using combined parametric and nonparametric dimensionality analysis. The data from the social science subtests of the Secondary School Institutions Student Selection and Placement Test of 1999, 2000, and 2001 were used for this study. The study indicated multidimensionality for the social science subtest. Because the results indicated multidimensionality does exist in social science subtest, it would be helpful to describe multidimensionality structure and, finally, score separately by these unidimensional grouping.
