Serlin, Ronald C.; Kaiser, Henry F. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1978
When multiple-choice tests are scored in the usual manner, giving each correct answer one point, information concerning response patterns is lost. A method for utilizing this information is suggested. An example is presented and compared with two conventional methods of scoring. (Author/JKS)

Kaiser, Henry F.; Hunka, Steve – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1973
Authors conclude that, in the world of real data sample correlation matrices, Guttman's stronger lower bound is not of practical use in determining the effective number of common factors. (Authors/CB)

Kaiser, Henry F. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1980
The use of Bayes' estimates for proportions in the Law of Comparative Judgment is suggested to avoid sample proportions of zero and one. (Author)

Kaiser, Henry F.; Cerny, Barbara A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1980
A simplified mathematical and computational treatment of the canonical correlational analysis of two-way contingency tables is provided. (Author)

Kaiser, Henry F.; Cerny, Barbara A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
A method for obtaining teacher ratings from incomplete student ranking data is presented. The procedure involves finding the scores for the teachers on the first principal component of a student intercorrelation matrix, where the missing data are supplied by least squares. (Author)

Kaiser, Henry F.; Cerny, Barbara A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
Whether to factor the image correlation matrix or to use a new model with an alpha factor analysis of it is mentioned, with particular reference to the determinacy problem. It is pointed out that the distribution of the images is sensibly multivariate normal, making for "better" factor analyses. (Author/CTM)

Kaiser, Henry F.; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1977
A formula is derived for ascertaining factor scores for the factor analytic method: Little Jiffy, Mark IV. This formula is then employed to derive a second formula giving an exact determination of the generalized Kuder-Richardson estimate of the reliability of scores on a Little Jiffy factor. (Author/JKS)

Serlin, Ronald C.; Kaiser, Henry F. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1976
Internal consistency as one rationale for item selection from the unverse of possible test items is discussed and formulae are presented which relate the maximum internal consistency of a test to the largest eigenvalue of the interitem correlation matrix. A computer program to perform these calculations is presented. (Author/JKS)

Kaiser, Henry F.; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
An alternative derivation of Tryon's basic formula for the coefficient of domain validity or the coefficient of generalizability developed by Cronbach, Rajaratnam, and Glaser is provided. This derivation, which is also the generalized Kuder-Richardson coefficient, requires a relatively minimal number of assumptions compared with that in previously…
