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)

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)

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…

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.

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)

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)

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.

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…

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.

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.

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…

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.

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…
