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)

Michael, William B.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
The study determined whether the hypothesized constructs of the Dimensions of Self-Concept Scale (DOSC), a measure of academic self-concept, could be identified for a college sample as well as eighth-grade students. DOSC seemed to be a valid indicator of academic self-concept for college students. (Author/DWH)

Darakjian, Gregory P.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
In a longitudinal investigation of 179 seventh graders, the current investigation covers a surviving sample of eleventh graders. Predictive validity coefficients of five Dimensions of Self-Concept (DOSC), Form S subscales were ascertained relative to total grade point average (GPA) and to GPA in several subjects during three enrollment periods.…

Smith, Eleanor F.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1997
Evidence for the internal consistency-reliability and construct validity of scores on the 6 dimensions of the Dimensions of Self-Concept Scale was provided through results from 107 registered nurses. Confirmatory maximum likelihood factor analyses indicated that a six-factor oblique model accounted for the greatest proportion of the covariance.…

Paik, Chie; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1999
Studied the internal consistency reliability and construct validity of scores on each of five dimensions of a Japanese version of the Dimensions of Self-Concept Scale. Results for 354 female high school students show that a five-factor oblique model accounts for the greatest proportion of covariance in the matrix of 15 subtests. Contains 20…

Chong, Sandra; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2000
Studied the internal consistency reliability and construct validity of scores on a Korean version of the Dimensions of Self-Concept Scale (W. Michael and R. Smith, 1976) with samples of 213, 191, and 213 junior high and high school students in Korea. Results generally support the internal consistency reliability and the construct validity of the…

Paik, Chie Matsuzawa; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2000
Added a sixth factor to the Dimensions of Self-Concept Scale-Form H (DOSC) (W. Michael and others, 1984), and examined its reliability and validity with a sample of 350 midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy. Results indicate satisfactory reliability for all six scales and an oblique six-factor model that supports the multidimensionality of the…

Villar, Irene de Aquino; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1995
Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses provide evidence for the construct validity of the five subscales of a parallel Portuguese language version of the Dimensions of Self-Concept scale Form H. Subjects were 159 female and 236 male Brazilian college students. (SLD)

Omizo, Michael M.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1981
Two purposes of this study were to determine the relationship between scores on five scales of the Dimensions of Self-Concept (DOSC) and academic success, and to ascertain the differential validity of the DOSC scales in comparing Mexican-American junior high school males and females. (Author/GK)

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…

Michael, William B.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1978
For each of two revised forms of the Dimensions of Self-Concept measure (intermediate and secondary forms), statistical information is presented concerning the intercorrelations of each of five factor scales, the reliability and standard error of measurement of each scale, and the results of item analyses.

Fernandes, Lucia M.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1978
Three essentially parallel forms of the Dimensions of Self-Concept scale were factor analyzed using three samples of students: one elementary school sample, one junior high school sample, and one high school sample. Results are interpreted in terms of the reliability and validity of the scale. (Author/JKS)

Darakjian, Gregory P.; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1982
The validity of academic self-concept, achievement test scores, and teacher ratings in predicting grade point average and proficiency test scores for junior high school students was examined. All validity coefficiencts were statistically significant. (Author/BW)
