A Construct Validity Investigation of Scores on a Japanese Version of an Academic Self-Concept Scale for Secondary School Students.
Paik, Chie; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1999
Studied the internal consistency reliability and construct validity of scores on each of five dimensions of a Japanese version of the Dimensions of Self-Concept Scale. Results for 354 female high school students show that a five-factor oblique model accounts for the greatest proportion of covariance in the matrix of 15 subtests. Contains 20…

The Relationship of Creativity Measures to School Achievement and to Preferred Learning and Thinking Style in a Sample of Korean High School Students.
Kim, Junghee; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1995
For 92 male and 101 female Korean 11th graders, creativity as measured by the Torrance Tests of Creativity, showed little relationship to school performance. Females tended to be more creative than males, but, irrespective of gender, students with right-brain associated thinking and learning style earned high creativity scores. (SLD)

Carter, Jacquelyn; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1995
The Effective School Function Inventory was constructed to operationalize the major constructs of efficient school operation. An analysis with 124 teachers identified 4 meaningful factors: (1) supportive collegial interaction; (2) cooperative facilitation of goal attainment in learning/sharing; (3) morally oriented leadership; and (4)…

The Reliability and Construct Validity of Scores on the Six-Factor DOSC (Dimensions of Self-Concept) Scale for College Students.
Paik, Chie Matsuzawa; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2000
Added a sixth factor to the Dimensions of Self-Concept Scale-Form H (DOSC) (W. Michael and others, 1984), and examined its reliability and validity with a sample of 350 midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy. Results indicate satisfactory reliability for all six scales and an oblique six-factor model that supports the multidimensionality of the…

A Construct Validity Study of Scores on a Korean Version of an Academic Self-Concept Scale for Secondary School Students.
Chong, Sandra; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2000
Studied the internal consistency reliability and construct validity of scores on a Korean version of the Dimensions of Self-Concept Scale (W. Michael and R. Smith, 1976) with samples of 213, 191, and 213 junior high and high school students in Korea. Results generally support the internal consistency reliability and the construct validity of the…

First-Order and Higher-Order Creative Ability Factors in Structure-of-Intellect Measures Administered to Sixth-Grade Children.
Michael, William B.; Bachelor, Patricia – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1992
A more parsimonious interpretation of the factor structure of creativity tests than that afforded by the original study was found in this reanalysis of a study of 403 sixth graders by P. Merrifield, J. Guilford, and A. Gershon (1963). The prior analysis extracted and rotated too many factors. (SLD)

Higher-Order Abilities Conceptualized within Guilford's Structure-of-Intellect (SOI) Model for a Sample of United States Coast Guard Academy Cadets: A Reanalysis of an SOI Data Base.
Chen, Chin-Yi; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1993
Empirical validation of the first-order and higher-order factor structures of the structure-of-intellect (SOI) model was provided by reanalysis of a database of 39 measures administered to 178 Coast Guard Cadets. Results suggest that SOI could be reconceptualized as a pyramid-like hierarchical theory of intelligence. (SLD)

First-Order and Higher-Order Factors of Creative Social Intelligence within Guilford's Structure-of-Intellect Model: A Reanalysis of a Guilford Data Base.
Chen Shyuefee, Agnes; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1993
Confirmatory maximum likelihood factor analysis determined how accurately each of several hypothesized combinations of first-order and higher-order factors reflecting creativity in the social intelligence of 192 high school students described the covariation in selected submatrixes from the total correlation matrix originally analyzed. Results…

Crowder, Betty; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1989
An experimental test was developed for the measurement of self-concept in an employment setting. Administering this six-factor Dimensions of Self-Concept test to 201 employees in an electronics/computer company resulted in a determination of internal consistency and reliability sufficient to justify testing a revised version based on statistical…

Academic Self-Concept Correlates of Potential Burnout in a Sample of First-Semester Elementary-School Practice Teachers: A Concurrent Validity Study.
Gold, Yvonne; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1985
For 109 graduate students beginning their first semester of practice teaching at the elementary school level, the concurrent validity of five subscales of the measure of academic self-concept entitled Dimensions of Self-Concept was found relative to each of three criterion scales of the Maslach Burnout Inventory.

Michael, William B.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1985
A shortened Study Attitudes and Methods Survey (SAMS) was administered to 181 community college students. Four original factors remained in the new version: academic interest--love of learning; study anxiety; manipulation; and alienation toward authority. Academic drive--conformity and study methods were dropped, while facilitative study behaviors…

Comparative Validities of Standardized Academic Self-Concept Scales and Achievement Test Measures and of Teacher Ratings of Citizenship and Effort in Forecasting Performance of Junior High School Students.
Darakjian, Gregory P.; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1982
The validity of academic self-concept, achievement test scores, and teacher ratings in predicting grade point average and proficiency test scores for junior high school students was examined. All validity coefficiencts were statistically significant. (Author/BW)

The Construct Validity of a Career Interest Inventory Representing Eight Major Clusters of Professional Level Occupational Activities.
Knapp-Lee, Lisa; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
This study (1) provided evidence concerning the construct validity of scales based on the clusters found in a revised, professional-level form of the California Occupational Preference System Interest Inventory and (2) examined the degree of internal consistency of the 16 newly devised subscales.
