Klein, Alice E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1980
The Screening Test of Academic Readiness (STAR) was administered to three samples of kindergarten pupils. A series of factor analyses was performed to determine whether the STAR could be used for individualized diagnosis and remediation. Results showed that two oblique factors emerged which had limited meaning. (Author/BW)

Walters, Lynda Henley; Klein, Alice E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1981
Two scales were submitted together for factor analyses in order to determine the extent to which the dimensions of locus of control and anomie were related from the perspective of adolescents. It was concluded that the instruments measure different constructs and are factorially valid when considered together. (Author/AL)

Klein, Alice E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1981
A factor analysis was performed for two levels of the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS). Results showed that there was essentially one common factor with little evidence that the user would gain much nonredundant information from the 15 scores yielded by the ITBS. (Author/GK)

Underlying constructs of the Nowicki-Strickland Locus of Control Scale for Children (NSLOCSC) were identified through factor analysis and cross-validated with two similar samples of high school students. The two resultant dimensions appeared to measure Social Control (six items) and Self Control (two items). (Author/GK)

Klein, Alice E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1980
The test-retest reliability and predictive validity of the Northwestern Syntax Screening Test (NSST) with pre-kindergarten pupils was investigated. It was found to have moderate test-retest reliability, and to be moderately accurate in predicting general academic achievement test scores of pupils in kindergarten and first grade. (Author/GK)

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)
