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…

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…

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…

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)

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.

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…

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…

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.

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…

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.

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)
