Attali, Yigal – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2016
Performance of students in low-stakes testing situations has been a concern and focus of recent research. However, researchers who have examined the effect of stakes on performance have not been able to compare low-stakes performance to truly high-stakes performance of the same students. Results of such a comparison are reported in this article.…

Liu, Ou Lydia; Bridgeman, Brent; Gu, Lixiong; Xu, Jun; Kong, Nan – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2015
Research on examinees' response changes on multiple-choice tests over the past 80 years has yielded some consistent findings, including that most examinees make score gains by changing answers. This study expands the research on response changes by focusing on a high-stakes admissions test--the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning measures…

Huang, Hung-Yu; Wang, Wen-Chung – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2013
Both testlet design and hierarchical latent traits are fairly common in educational and psychological measurements. This study aimed to develop a new class of higher order testlet response models that consider both local item dependence within testlets and a hierarchy of latent traits. Due to high dimensionality, the authors adopted the Bayesian…

Davison, Mark L.; Semmes, Robert; Huang, Lan; Close, Catherine N. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2012
Data from 181 college students were used to assess whether math reasoning item response times in computerized testing can provide valid and reliable measures of a speed dimension. The alternate forms reliability of the speed dimension was .85. A two-dimensional structural equation model suggests that the speed dimension is related to the accuracy…

Kuncel, Nathan R.; Wee, Serena; Serafin, Lauren; Hezlett, Sarah A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
Extensive research has examined the effectiveness of admissions tests for use in higher education. What has gone unexamined is the extent to which tests are similarly effective for predicting performance at both the master's and doctoral levels. This study empirically synthesizes previous studies to investigate whether or not the Graduate Record…

Federici, Louise; Schuerger, James – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1974
Investigated extent to which traditional indices (test scores, undergraduate GPA, letters of recommendation) and less traditional measures (interview ratings and biographical information) would predict each of two criteria of success in a subdoctoral program in applied psychology: a) academic competency (graduate GPA) and b) faculty ratings of…

Reilly, Richard R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
Because previous reports have suggested that the lowered validity of tests scored with empirical option weights might be explained by a capitalization of the keying procedures on omitting tendencies, a procedure was devised to key options empirically with a "correction-for-guessing" constraint.

Baird, Leonard L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1976
To understand the functions of graduate level admissions tests, the characteristics of students who scored high compared with those who scored low on three tests were examined on the basis of correlates of each of the tests with a large number of other variables reflecting the students' background and educational characteristics.

Covert, Robert W.; Chansky, Norman M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
Correlation coefficients between graduate grade point average and each of three predictor variables, consisting of Graduate Record Examinations-Verbal score, Graduate Record Examination-Quantitative score, and undergraduate grade point average, were calculated for each of the six subgroups. Results showed differential predictability across the…

Bean, Andrew – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
The predictive validity of the Graduate Record Examinations Aptitude Test, Verbal and Quantitative scores and undergraduate grade-point average were examined. Criterion variables consisted of graduate grade-point average, the Master's Comprehensive Examination scores and grades in individual required courses. Findings stress need for local…

Nagi, John L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
Intended to determine the validity of the total score on the Graduate Record Examinations Aptitude Test (GRE) and of the score on the Miller Analogies Test (MAT) as predictors of a criterion of completion or noncompletion of the Doctoral Program in Educational Administration at State University of New York at Albany.

Thornell, John G.; McCoy, Anthony – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1985
This study examines predictive validity of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) of academic success as measured by graduate grade point average (GGPA) of 582 students in selected academic disciplines. Results indicated considerable variability in validity coefficients for both different subgroups and subtests. (BS)

Levine, Michael V.; Drasgow, Fritz – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
The relation between incorrect option choice and estimated ability level was examined for two widely used aptitude tests, the Scholastic Aptitude Test, and the Graduate Record Examination. Incorrect option choice was found to be related to estimated ability for many items. Implications of these findings are briefly discussed. (Author)

Stricker, Lawrence J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
The stability was evaluated of a partial correlation index, comparisons of item characteristic curves, and comparisions of item difficulties in assessing race and sex differences in the performance of verbal items on the Graduate Record Examination Aptitude Test. All three indexes exhibited consistency in identifying the same items in different…
