Watkins, Ernest O.; Wiebe, Michael J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
The factorial validity of the Stanford Achievement Test (SAT) was investigated with a sample of first graders (n=393). Although eight areas are proposed from the SAT, this analysis produced only one general factor. Results suggest limiting SAT interpretation for first graders to a total score approach. (Author/BS)

Grossman, Fred M.; Johnson, Kathleen M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
The capability of the Slosson Intelligence Test and the Otis Lennon Mental Ability Test to predict academic achievement as measured by the Stanford Achievement Test is examined. The results indicated that the Slosson and Otis-Lennon significantly predict Stanford Vocabulary, Reading Comprehension, and Mathematical Concepts subtest scores.…

Powers, Stephen; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
An examination of the predictive validity of the Stanford Mathematics Test included 426 Black and White eighth- and ninth-grade students. No significant differences were found in mean residuals by race. Differences of small magnitude occurred by sex in one cohort which indicated underprediction for females and overprediction for males.

May, Deborah – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1986
The relationships between the Gesell School Readiness Test and standarized achievement and intelligence measures were examined. Children were tested before kindergarten, at the end of kindergarten, and at the end of first grade. Correlation coefficients varied from grade to grade, but did not show a higher correlation between related measures.…

Scruggs, Thomas E.; Lifson, Steve – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1986
Two experiments compared the ability of learning disabled (LD) students and more typical age peers to answer such reading comprehension questions presented independently of reading passages. Results suggested a relative deficiency on the part of LD students with respect to reasoning strategies and test-taking skills. (Author/LMO)

Weiner, Max; Kay, Patricia M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1972
Study presents findings to the effect that relatively inexpensive standardized tests which measure achievement in reading and mathematics below the college level may be used to predict scores on the SAT and CLEP tests. (Authors)

Cianflone, Ralph; Zullo, Thomas G. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1980
Slosson Intelligence Test (SIT) scores, taken at the kindergarten level were correlated with the acquisition of sight vocabulary and later measures of reading achievement (Stanford Achievement Test scores). Correlation coefficients ranged from .61 to .87. (Author/GK)

Nagle, Richard J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
A sample of 176 first-grade children was tested on the Metropolitan Readiness Tests, 1976 Edition (MRT), during the initial month of school and was retested eight months later on the Stanford Achievement Test. Results demonstrated substantial validity of the MRT for predicting first-grade achievement. (Author/CTM)

Klein, Alice E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
The ability of the Stanford Early School Achievement Test (SESAT) to predict scores on the Stanford Achievement Test (SAT) was assessed, using pupils in grades 1 and 2 from a large midwest suburban school district. Observed SESAT-SAT correlations ranged from .257 to .723. Author/CTM)

Klein, Alice E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
The latest revision of the Stanford Achievement Test (SAT), Primary Battery I, consists of seven subtests combined to yield three subtotal scores and one Total Battery score. A factor analysis was performed on the SAT-I scores of 927 beginning second-grade pupils. The analysis showed two correlated factors. (Author/CTM)

Sachar, Jane; Suppes, Patrick – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1980
The present study compared six methods, two of which utilize the content structure of items, to estimate total-test scores using 450 students and 60 items of the 110-item Stanford Mental Arithmetic Test. Three methods yielded fairly good estimates of the total-test score. (Author/RL)

Merrifield, Philip; Hummel-Rossi, Barbara – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1976
The nine subtests of the Stanford Achievement Test were factor analyzed for a sample of two twenty-six eighth grade students. The first factor dominated the analysis with no other factor accounting for any substantial variance. Tables are presented and implications discussed. (JKS)

Glazzard, Peggy; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1982
The Kindergarten Teacher Rating Scale is shown to be a valid predictor of first-grade reading achievement in a study of predictive validity and classification accuracy. The scale's success in explaining the variance in first-grade reading scores and correctly classifying students is compared to that of reading readiness tests. (Author/CM)
