Fu, Yuanshu; Wen, Zhonglin; Wang, Yang – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2018
The maximal reliability of a congeneric measure is achieved by weighting item scores to form the optimal linear combination as the total score; it is never lower than the composite reliability of the measure when measurement errors are uncorrelated. The statistical method that renders maximal reliability would also lead to maximal criterion…

Lake, Christopher J.; Withrow, Scott; Zickar, Michael J.; Wood, Nicole L.; Dalal, Dev K.; Bochinski, Joseph – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2013
Adapting the original latitude of acceptance concept to Likert-type surveys, response latitudes are defined as the range of graded response options a person is willing to endorse. Response latitudes were expected to relate to attitude involvement such that high involvement was linked to narrow latitudes (the result of selective, careful…

Teo, Timothy – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
This article describes the development, validation, and measurement invariance of scores from a survey designed to measure preservice teachers' reported acceptance of technology. Drawing from conceptual models in the areas of information systems and technology acceptance, a five-factor Technology Acceptance Measure for Preservice Teachers (TAMPST)…

Sun, Jun; Willson, Victor L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2008
This article proposes a multilevel modeling approach to study the general and specific attitudes formed in human learning behavior. Based on the premises of activity theory, it conceptualizes the unit of analysis for attitude measurement as a scalable and evolving activity system rather than a single action. Measurement issues related to this…

Mueller, Karsten; Liebig, Christian; Hattrup, Keith – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2007
Two quasi-experimental field studies were conducted to evaluate the psychometric equivalence of computerized and paper-and-pencil job satisfaction measures. The present research extends previous work in the area by providing better control of common threats to validity in quasi-experimental research on test mode effects and by evaluating a more…

van der Pas, Suzan; van Tilburg, Theo; Knipscheer, Kees C. P. M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2005
This study focused on two conceptually distinct measures of the filial responsibility expectations of older adults: a vignette technique and an attitude item scale. Data were based on 1,553 respondents aged 61 to 92 years who participated in the Longitudinal Aging Study Amsterdam in 1998 to 1999.The results showed that the item scale had multiple…

Russell, Steven S.; Spitzmuller, Christiane; Lin, Lilly F.; Stanton, Jeffrey M.; Smith, Patricia C.; Ironson, Gail H. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2004
The Job Descriptive Index family of job attitude measures includes the Job in General (JIG) scale, a measure of global satisfaction with one's job. The scale was originally developed and validated by Ironson, Smith, Brannick, Gibson, and Paul. Following structured scale reduction procedures developed by Stanton, Sinar, Balzer, and Smith, the…

McCoach, D. Betsy; Siegle, Del – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2002
Designed an instrument to measure adolescents' attitudes toward school and teachers, goal-valuation, motivation, and general academic self-perceptions. Tested the developed survey with samples of 146, 200, and 299 high school students. Findings suggest the scale has adequate construct validity, criterion-related validity, and internal consistency…

Thomas, Adrian; Palmer, Jerry K.; Coker-Juneau, Carla J.; Williams, David J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2002
Investigated the psychometric properties of the Interaction with Disabled Persons Scale (IDP; L. Gething, 1991). Exploratory factor analysis with 358 undergraduates and confirmatory factor analysis with a sample of 272 undergraduates suggest that the IDP may provide a reasonable measurement of multidimensional attitudes toward individuals with…

Burkard, Alan W.; Jones, James A.; Johll, Michael P. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2002
Explored the factor structure of the Quick Discrimination Index (QDI), a measure of discrimination attitudes toward women, with 428 white university students using hierarchical factor analysis. Results support a structure with four first-order factors and one second-order factor. Study 2 tested the original factor structure and the structure from…

Powers, Stephen; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
The Mathematics Attribution Scale-Algebra (MAS) was designed to assess attributions to ability, effort, task, and environment for success or failure in algebra. The study examined the reliability and validity of the MAS with high ability high school students. Results present a complicated picture of the psychometric properties of the MAS. (Author)

Ory, John C.; Poggio, John P. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1981
The study investigated the effect of the use or nonuse of separate answer sheets on responses to affective instruments with respect to both instrument and subject characteristics. Results indicated significant score differences across scales with and without answer sheets. (Author/BW)
