Kaiser, Henry F.; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
An alternative derivation of Tryon's basic formula for the coefficient of domain validity or the coefficient of generalizability developed by Cronbach, Rajaratnam, and Glaser is provided. This derivation, which is also the generalized Kuder-Richardson coefficient, requires a relatively minimal number of assumptions compared with that in previously…

The Factorial Validity of the Piers-Harris Children's Self-Concept Scale for Each of Three Samples of Elementary, Junior High, and Senior High School Students in a Large Metropolitan School District
Michael, William B.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
The scale yielded three major dimensions that were essentially invariant across the three samples: physical appearance, socially unacceptable (bad) behavior, and academic or school status. (Author/RC)

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)…

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…

The Construct Validity of a Career Interest Inventory Representing Sixteen Subclusters Within Eight Major Career Clusters of Professional Level Occupational Activities.
Knapp-Lee, Lisa J.; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1985
Construct validity was demonstrated for sixteen career subclusters through factor analysis of an occupational inventory based on interests in professional level job activities. (Author/LMO)

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. (Author/LMO)

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…

The Development and Validation of an Auditory Perception Test in Spanish for Hispanic Children Receiving Reading Instruction in Spanish.
Morrison, James A.; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1982
A Spanish auditory perception test, La Prueba de Analisis Auditivo, was developed and administered to 158 Spanish-speaking Latino children, kindergarten through grade 3. Psychometric data for the test are presented, including its relationship to SOBER, a criterion-referenced Spanish reading measure. (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.

The Concurrent Validity of a Behavioral Rating Scale for Assessing Attention Deficit Disorder (DSM III) in Learning Disabled Children.
Ozawa, Joseph P.; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
The Ozawa Behavioral Rating Scale contains six items related to distractibility and nine items related to impulsivity. This validity study showed that the Scale shows statistically significant relationships with the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children--Revised and the Matching Familiar Figures Test and may be appropriate for identifying…

A Comparison of the Relative Validity of a Measure of Piagetian Cognitive Development and a Set of Conventional Prognostic Measures in the Prediction of the Future Success of Ninth- and Tenth-Grade Students in Algebra.
Bloland, Ruth Marian; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
This study compared the validity of chronological age, a standardized algebra prognosis test, standardized verbal and quantitative scales derived from an achievement test battery, and an objective measure of formal or concrete stages of Piagetian cognitive development for predicting final examination scores and course grades in high school…

The Construct and Concurrent Validity of Two College-Level Academic Self-Concept Scales for a Sample of Primarily Hispanic Community College Students.
Halote, Barry; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
Scores of 202 primarily Hispanic community college students were used to determine (1) the correlations of each of five factor subscales of a research form of the dimensions of Self-Concept (DOSC) measure with the Total Score of the Academic Self-Concept Scale and (2) the empirical factor structure of each instrument.

The Construct Validity of an Exploratory Academic Self-Concept Subscale Derived from the Piers-Harris Children's Self Concept Scale.
Halote, Barry; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
The construct validity of a 17-item exploratory academic self-concept subscale derived from the Piers-Harris Chidlren's Self-Concept Scale was investigated. Its empirical factor structure and its correlation with two other academic self-concept instruments were analyzed. Research use only is recommended pending rewriting of this exploratory…

Validity of Measures Reflecting Visual Discrimination and Linguistic Constructs for a Sample of Second-Grade Hispanic Children Receiving Reading Instruction in Spanish.
Morrison, James A.; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
The concurrent and discriminant validity of La Prueba de Analisis Auditivo, a Spanish auditory perception test, and the validity of the perceptual deficit hypothesis and of hypotheses derived from verbal processing theory were evaluated in a sample of 114 second-grade Hispanic pupils receiving reading instruction in Spanish.

The Development and Validation of a Preliminary Research Form of an Academic Self-Concept Measure for College Students.
Michael, William B.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
The development and construct validation of the Dimensions of Self-Concept (DOSC), Form H, are described. The 20-item subscales of the preliminary research form furnished parallel estimates of reliability ranging from .83 to .91. The five subscales show promising construct validity, as evidenced by their factor structure. (Author/BW)
