Predicting Academic Achievement of Mexican American Children: Preliminary Analysis of the McCarthy Scales.
Valencia, Richard R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1982
The McCarthy Scales of Children's Abilities (MSCA) appears to be an effective predictor of school achievement for 31 English-speaking second-grade Mexican-American children. High Pearson product-moment correlations were obtained between MSCA and the Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills. (Author/PN)

Nolan, James S.; Jacobson, James – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1972
In general Achievement Test scores appeared to be more valid predictors of grades in English and Mathematics courses than were scores on a scholastic aptitude or general intelligence test. (Authors)

Navajo Adolescents Scores on a Primary Language Questionnaire, the Raven Standard Progressive Matrices (RSPM) and the Comprehensive Test of Basic Skills (CTBS): A Correlational Study.
Sidles, Craig; Mac Avoy, James – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1987
Bilingual Navajo adolescents aged 14-16 were administered the Raven Standard Progressive Matrices (RSPM) and Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills (CTBS). Correlations were moderate and were higher for females than for males. Norms were established for adolescent Navajos on the RSPM, a nonverbal test of intelligence and visual reasoning. (Author/GDC)

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. (Author/PN)

Gross, Alan L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1982
The validity of the Short Form Test of Academic Aptitude and a set of biographical variables as predictors of future academic achievement was investigated. Results showed high levels of predictive validity in terms of multiple correlations, cross-validated correlations, and prediction intervals. (Author/GK)

The Short-Term Predictive Validity of a Standardized Reading Test and of Scales Reflecting Six Dimensions of Academic Self-Concept Relative to Selected High School Achievement Criteria for Four Ethnic Groups.
Lehn, Thomas; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1980
Based on a sample of eleventh grade students from different ethnic backgrounds, (1) a reading test was a more valid predictor of academic success than academic self-concept; (2) aspiration and academic interest were valid predictors of school achievements; and (3) a combination of cognitive and affective measures was the most valid predictor.…

Cognitive and Affective Factor Dimensions in Each of Four High School Samples of Different Ethnicity.
Michael, William B.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1980
This investigation is an extension of TM 506 002. A factor analysis of the intercorrelations of academic self-concept and reading scores revealed three factors: Academic Achievement, Positive Academic Affect, and Anxiety. The results also showed that the factor structure served to explain the criterion-related validity coeffecients obtained in the…

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.

The Predictive Validity of the Developmental Test of Visual-Motor Integration under Group and Individual Modes of Administration Relative to Academic Performance Measures of Second-Grade Pupils without Identifiable Major Learning Disabilities.
Curtis, Connie June; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
The score distributions of the two methods of administration described in the title revealed comparable means, standard deviations, and general shape of distribution. With respect to validity coefficients, no appreciable differences were found. (JKS)

The Validity of Seven Easily Obtainable Economic and Demographic Predictors of Achievement Test Performance
May, Robert J., Jr.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1977
Seven easily obtainable background variables were used as predictors of academic achievement in a sample of fourth grade pupils. A combination of five of these variables yielded high predictive validity. (Author/JKS)
