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)

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)

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)

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 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)
