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)

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)

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 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)
