Choi, Namok; Fuqua, Dale R.; Newman, Jody L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2009
The short form of the Bem Sex Role Inventory (BSRI) contains half as many items as the long form and yet has often demonstrated better reliability and validity. This study uses exploratory and confirmatory factor analytic methods to examine the structure of the short form of the BSRI. A structure noted elsewhere also emerged here, consisting of…

Choi, Namok; Fuqua, Dale R.; Newman, Jody L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2008
Pedhazur and Tetenbaum speculated that factor structures from self-ratings of the Bem Sex-Role Inventory (BSRI) personality traits would be different from factor structures from desirability ratings of the same traits. To explore this hypothesis, both desirability ratings of BSRI traits (both "for a man" and "for a woman") and…

Choi, Namok; Fuqua, Dale R.; Newman, Jody L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2007
This study examines the structural validity of scores from the Bem Sex Role Inventory using a maximum likelihood confirmatory factor analysis (CFA). Six hundred and sixty-five graduate and undergraduate students participate in the study. A seven first-order factor model almost identical to the model reported in a previous CFA study is used as the…

Vacha-Haase, Tammi – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1998
Proposes a new method, reliability generalization, for meta-analysis. Reliability generalization characterizes the typical reliability of scores for a test across studies, the amount of variability in reliability coefficients, and the sources of this variability. Analysis of 87 reliability coefficients for two scales of the Bem Sex Role Inventory…

Campbell, Todd; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1997
The construct validity of scores from the Bem Sex-Role Inventory was studied using confirmatory factor analysis methods on data from 791 subjects. Measurement characteristics of the long and short forms were studied, with the short form yielding more reliable scores, as has previously been indicated. (Author/SLD)

Ireland-Galman, Michelle M.; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
For 404 community college students differentiated by sex, ethnicity, and types of educational majors, an estimate of the concurrent validity of each of two predictor measures (locus of control and sex-role orientation) was obtained relative to a criterion measure portraying the fear of success construct.

Motowidlo, Stephan J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1981
This paper presents a scoring procedure for sex-role orientation reflecting how similar an individual is to androgynous, undifferentiated, masculine, and feminine sex-role types. The profile scores are reasonably reliable, consistent with a widely used typological scoring procedure, and permit finer comparisons between individuals with different…
