This study was framed under Bandura's (1986) triadic…

Bong, Mimi; Hocevar, Dennis – Applied Measurement in Education, 2002
Examined convergent and discriminant validity of various self-efficacy measures across two studies, one involving 358 U.S. high school students and another involving 235 Korean female high school students. Across the studies the first-order confirmatory factor analyses provide support for both convergent validity of different self-efficacy…

This resulted in a 198-item list, which was rated…

Hocevar, Dennis – Intelligence, 1980
Three of Guilford's measures of ideational fluency, and the Concept Mastery Test, a traditional verbal intelligence test, were correlated with a creative activities inventory. There were no significant differences between the predictive ability of ideational fluency and verbal intelligence measures. (Author/CP)

Hocevar, Dennis – Journal of Personality Assessment, 1979
The Alternate Uses test was administered to 60 college students to measure originality; scores were based on subjective judgment, statistical infrequency, and random numbers. Findings indicated that either new scoring methods or statistical methods for controlling ideational fluency should be developed. (MH)

Hocevar, Dennis – Journal of Educational Psychology, 1979
Three of Guilford's tests of divergent thinking were scored for ideational fluency and originality. The originality scores were reliable, but when the effects of ideational fluency were partialed out of the originality scores, all reliabilities showed substantial decrements; interest correlations dropped to zero or showed a substantial decrement.…

Bong, Mimi; Hocevar, Dennis – 2001
Convergent and discriminant validity of various self-efficacy measures was examined across two studies. In Study 1, U.S. high school students (n=358) rated their self-efficacy in 6 school subjects with reference to specific problems or general self-efficacy statements on the Motivated Strategies for Learning Questionnaire (MSLQ) (P. Pintrich and…

Zarnegar, Zohreh; Hocevar, Dennis – 1984
The dimensionality of original thinking in gifted children was investigated using measures designed to control for the ideational fluency/originality confounding and for task ambiguity in 315 gifted fourth to sixth graders. Ss were instructed to give only one response on each originality task rather than to give as many as possible and were…

Chang, Lei; Hocevar, Dennis – Applied Measurement in Education, 2000
Demonstrated the use of generalizability theory in analyzing existing faculty evaluation data. Three measurement conceptualizations representing different purposes of faculty evaluation were developed and variance components associated with these conceptualizations were estimated from an existing faculty evaluation using 30 teachers for each…

The effects of problem structure on two-step word problems are analyzed in a sample of 91 fifth through eighth graders. Results showed that sequencing the first and second steps did not cause as much trouble as understanding the first step. (RB)

Benson, Jeri; Hocevar, Dennis – Journal of Educational Measurement, 1985
Three rating scales--with all positive or all negative wording, or a mixture of both--were administered to 522 children in grades four through six. The results indicated that it was difficult for students to indicate agreement by disagreeing with a negative statement. This affected test validity. Author/GDC)
