The procedure is based on an application of the latent variable modeling methodology and is concerned with evaluating observed variance explained by a global factor and by one or more additional component-specific factors. The approach furnishes…

Ponterotto, Joseph G.; Gretchen, Denise; Utsey, Shawn O.; Stacuzzi, Thomas; Saya, Robert, Jr. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2002
Studied the psychometric strengths of the Multigroup Ethnic Identity Measure (J. Phinney, 1992) through a review of 12 studies using this measure, a confirmatory factor analysis of the measure (n=219 high school students), and a readability analysis. Findings show Phinney's two-factor model is a better fit than a global model. (SLD)

Viswesvaran, Chockalingam; Ones, Deniz S. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1999
Examined whether individuals could fake their responses to a personality inventory if instructed to do so. Across 51 studies, fakeability did not vary by personality dimension. All the "Big Five" factors were equally fakeable, but faking produced the largest distortions in social desirability scales. Contains 75 references. (SLD)

Goldberg, Edith L.; Alliger, George M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1992
Metanalysis of 27 studies dealing with psychology students and the Graduate Record Examinations' (GRE) validity in predicting graduate school success was conducted. Overall, results do not indicate that the verbal and advanced psychology portions are valid predictors of grades, although the quantitative section predicts grades in quantitative…

Walkey, Frank H.; Green, Dianne E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1992
Six sets of data from previous studies are used to investigate the factor structure of the Maslach Burnout Inventory. In all 6 sets, the 22 inventory items divided between 2 clearly replicable factors. The larger, the Core of Burnout Factor, divides in turn into two equally replicable factors. (SLD)

Morrison, Todd; Morrison, Melanie – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1995
A meta-analytic review was conducted on published studies examining the relationship between performance on the quantitative and verbal components of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and graduate grade point average. Results suggest that the quantitative and verbal components of the GRE possess minimal predictive validity. (SLD)

Fouladi, Rachel T.; Steiger, James H. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1993
The test proposed by Brien, Venables, and Mayo (1984), endorsed by Silver and Dunlap, and supported by computer software that they developed is not a proper test for multivariate independence. A revised appraisal is suggested for the Silver and Dunlap results. (SLD)

Buckley, M. Ronald; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1992
The psychometric characteristics of the Job Descriptive Index and other inventories of job satisfaction are examined across a sample of validation studies.

Knowles, Susan L.; Welch, Cynthia A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1992
A meta-analysis of the difficulty and discrimination of the "none-of-the-above" (NOTA) test option was conducted with 12 articles (20 effect sizes) for difficulty and 7 studies (11 effect sizes) for discrimination. Findings indicate that using the NOTA option does not result in items of lesser quality. (SLD)
