The Rutgers Drawing Test as a Midyear Kindergarten Predictor of End-of-Kindergarten Readiness for First Grade
Denson, Teri A.; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1974
Descriptors: Kindergarten Children, Predictive Measurement, Predictive Validity, Preschool Education
The Development and Preliminary Validity of Three Forms of a Self-Concept Measure Emphasizing School-Related Activities
Michael, William B.; Smith, Robert A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1976
Describes the rationale for and the development of an instrument that provides scales to measure five school related constructs of self concept at three school levels and cites information regarding the factorial validity of each scale based on the derived data. (Author/DEP)

The Relationship of Reading Achievement, School Attitude, and Self-Responsibility Behaviors of Sixth-Grade Pupils to Comparative and Individualized Reporting Systems: Implications for Improvement of Validity of the Evaluation of Pupil Progress
Butterworth, Thomas W.; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
Results favored the individualized reporting system over the traditional one. High ability children were favored over low ability children and girls over boys. Individualized reporting systems yielded a higher average level of intellectual self-responsibility for children of low ability. (Author/BJG)

The Factorial Validity of the Piers-Harris Children's Self-Concept Scale for Each of Three Samples of Elementary, Junior High, and Senior High School Students in a Large Metropolitan School District
Michael, William B.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
The scale yielded three major dimensions that were essentially invariant across the three samples: physical appearance, socially unacceptable (bad) behavior, and academic or school status. (Author/RC)

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…

The Construct Validity of Higher Order Structure-of-Intellect Factors Reflecting Semantic and Symbolic Content Abilities.
Khattab, Ali-Maher; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1986
Based on reanalyses of correlational data obtained from the University of Southern California Aptitudes Research Project, this investigation examined the extent to which two higher order factors of semantic content and symbolic content form Guilford's structure-of-intellect model reflected distinct constructs.

The Construct and Concurrent Validity of a Measure of Academic Self-Concept and one of Locus of Control for a Sample of University Students.
Caracosta, Rhea; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1986
This study investigated the construct and concurrent validity of a standardized academic self-concept measure--Dimensions of Self-Concept (DOSC) Form H--and a measure of locus of control involving learning-related activities--the Intellectual Achievement Responsibility Questionnaire (IAR). (LMO)

The Construct Validity of a Career Interest Inventory Representing Sixteen Subclusters Within Eight Major Career Clusters of Professional Level Occupational Activities.
Knapp-Lee, Lisa J.; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1985
Construct validity was demonstrated for sixteen career subclusters through factor analysis of an occupational inventory based on interests in professional level job activities. (Author/LMO)

Academic Self-Concept Correlates of Potential Burnout in a Sample of First-Semester Elementary-School Practice Teachers: A Concurrent Validity Study.
Gold, Yvonne; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1985
For 109 graduate students beginning their first semester of practice teaching at the elementary school level, the concurrent validity of five subscales of the measure of academic self-concept entitled Dimensions of Self-Concept was found relative to each of three criterion scales of the Maslach Burnout Inventory. (Author/LMO)

Michael, William B.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1985
A shortened Study Attitudes and Methods Survey (SAMS) was administered to 181 community college students. Four original factors remained in the new version: academic interest--love of learning; study anxiety; manipulation; and alienation toward authority. Academic drive--conformity and study methods were dropped, while facilitative study behaviors…

The Construct Validity of a Career Interest Inventory Representing Eight Major Clusters of Professional Level Occupational Activities.
Knapp-Lee, Lisa; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
This study (1) provided evidence concerning the construct validity of scales based on the clusters found in a revised, professional-level form of the California Occupational Preference System Interest Inventory and (2) examined the degree of internal consistency of the 16 newly devised subscales.

The Long-Term Comparative Predictive Validities of Standardized Measures of Achievement and Academic Self-Concept for a Sample of Secondary School Students.
Darakjian, Gregory P.; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
Comparative predictive validities of 147 secondary school students were examined for six subtests of the SRA Assessment Survey and for five subscales of the Dimensions of Self-Concept relative to overall/grade point average (GPA) earned and to GPA achieved in English and mathematics courses.

A Comparison of the Relative Validity of a Measure of Piagetian Cognitive Development and a Set of Conventional Prognostic Measures in the Prediction of the Future Success of Ninth- and Tenth-Grade Students in Algebra.
Bloland, Ruth Marian; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
This study compared the validity of chronological age, a standardized algebra prognosis test, standardized verbal and quantitative scales derived from an achievement test battery, and an objective measure of formal or concrete stages of Piagetian cognitive development for predicting final examination scores and course grades in high school…

The Construct and Concurrent Validity of Two College-Level Academic Self-Concept Scales for a Sample of Primarily Hispanic Community College Students.
Halote, Barry; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
Scores of 202 primarily Hispanic community college students were used to determine (1) the correlations of each of five factor subscales of a research form of the dimensions of Self-Concept (DOSC) measure with the Total Score of the Academic Self-Concept Scale and (2) the empirical factor structure of each instrument.

The Construct Validity of an Exploratory Academic Self-Concept Subscale Derived from the Piers-Harris Children's Self Concept Scale.
Halote, Barry; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
The construct validity of a 17-item exploratory academic self-concept subscale derived from the Piers-Harris Chidlren's Self-Concept Scale was investigated. Its empirical factor structure and its correlation with two other academic self-concept instruments were analyzed. Research use only is recommended pending rewriting of this exploratory…
