Sex and Ethnic Differences in Relationships of Test Anxiety to Performance in Science Examinations by Fourth and Eighth Grade Students: Implications for Valid Interpretations of Achievement Test Scores.
Payne, Beverly D.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
Test anxiety scores from a 15-item internally consistent instrument were correlated with performance on an aggregate science test administered to 171 fourth- and 187 eight-grade students subdivided by sex and race. The interpretation of data possibly suggest that test anxiety is operating differentially for black and white students. (Author/PN)

The Concurrent Validity of the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test-Revised Relative to the Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills.
Beck, Frances Wi; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1985
The Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test Revised (PPVT-R) and the Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills (CTBS) (reading, mathematics, and language subtests) were administered to 61 elementary school students in semi-rural Louisiana. Moderate positive correlations were found between PPVT-R scores and all CTBS subtests except mathematics computation. (GDC)

A Cross-Sectional Cross-Lagged Panel Analysis of Mathematics Achievement and Attitudes: Implications for the Interpretation of the Direction of Predictive Validity.
Wolf, Frederic M.; Blixt, Sonya L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1981
Results of the differences between cross-lagged panel correlations and of the consistency of them for 2,429 students within the first eight grades suggested that attitudes toward mathematics is causally predominant over mathematics achievement for what variance is shared in common. (Author/GK)

Barnes, Jonathan – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
The confluence model for explaining the influence of birth order on intelligence was applied to a sample of 56 Black and 52 White students. The confluence model and parental occupation were deemed insufficient in accounting for racial differences in intelligence scores. (Author/JKS)

The Criterion-Related Validity of Two Tests Hypothesized to Represent Left Brain and Right Brain Function for a Group of Elementary School Children.
Dombrower, Jule; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1982
The concurrent and postdictive validity of two newly-devised tests of contrasting hemispheric function (Test of Right Hemisphere Ability, Test of Left Hemisphere Ability) was investigated relative to scores earned on the reading and mathematics portions of the Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills.

The Concurrent Validity and Factor Structure of Seventeen Structure-of-Intellect Measures Reflecting Behavioral Content.
Favero, Jane; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
For a sample of 152 children in grades 2 to 6, interest centered upon concurrent validity of measures of empathy and social sensitivity as conceptualized within the behavioral segment of Guilford's structure-of-intellect model and a criterion measure represented by a standardized test of academic performance.
