Leite, Walter L.; Svinicki, Marilla; Shi, Yuying – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
The authors examined the dimensionality of the VARK learning styles inventory. The VARK measures four perceptual preferences: visual (V), aural (A), read/write (R), and kinesthetic (K). VARK questions can be viewed as testlets because respondents can select multiple items within a question. The correlations between items within testlets are a type…

Immekus, Jason C.; Imbrie, P. K. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
The Revised Two-Factor Study Process Questionnaire (R-SPQ-2F) is a measure of university students' approach to learning. Original evaluation of the scale's psychometric properties was based on a sample of Hong Kong university students' scores. The purpose of this study was to test and cross-validate the R-SPQ-2F factor structure, based on separate…

Cheng, Ying-Yao; Wang, Wen-Chung; Ho, Yi-Hui – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2009
Educational and psychological tests are often composed of multiple short subtests, each measuring a distinct latent trait. Unfortunately, short subtests suffer from low measurement precision, which makes the bandwidth-fidelity dilemma inevitable. In this study, the authors demonstrate how a multidimensional Rasch analysis can be employed to take…

Salter, Daniel W.; Junco, Reynol – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2007
This concurrent validity study of Salter Environmental Type Assessment scores was conducted with the Group Environment Scale. A principal components factor analysis with varimax rotation of 191 college students' responses suggested two factors that accounted for 51% of the variance. The factor-analytic results and concurrent validity coefficients…

Isemonger, Ian; Sheppard, Chris – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2007
This study examined the factor structure of a Korean version of the Perceptual Learning Styles Preference Questionnaire. The instrument was developed to measure the learning-style preferences of students of English as a second language and English as a foreign language and has gained wide currency as a classroom diagnostic tool and survey…

Reio, Thomas G., Jr.; Wiswell, Albert K. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2006
Cognitive learning style instruments continue to enjoy widespread use in educational and occupational contexts by researchers and practitioners alike, despite widespread questions about the valid measurement of cognitive learning styles. This investigation examines the psychometric properties of one well-known measure of cognitive learning…

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)

McNary, Susan; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
Determines for a group of fifth-and sixth-grade middle class children the extent of the relationship if any between each of three measures of cognitive style (reflection-impulsivity, field dependence-independence, and internal-external locus of control) and each of two separate measures and a combined measure of fantasy predisposition.

Goldstein, Marc B.; Bokoros, Michael A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1992
It is argued that the axes of the Learning Style Inventory and Learning Style Questionnaire are not conceptually aligned. More accurate comparison involves the degree of similar classification of learning styles, as illustrated in the modest but similar degree of classification for 44 graduate and undergraduate students.

Geiger, Marshall A.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1992
A factor analysis was conducted of scores on the revised Learning Style Inventory of D. A. Kolb from 718 accounting students from 2 large state universities. Results support two bipolar learning dimensions different from those theorized and only one separate learning ability. Caution in interpreting scores is advised. (SLD)

Gruber, Christian P.; Carriuolo, Nancy – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1991
Three studies of construction and validity of a learner typology and an instructor typology based on the Canfield Learning Styles Inventory were conducted, using 851 male and 543 female community college students and 117 male and 120 female community college faculty members. The results provide support for both typologies. (SLD)

Merritt, Sharon L.; Marshall, Jon Clark – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
The Learning Style Inventory assesses learners' preferences. This study was designed to determine reliability and construct validity of Kolb's original ipsative instrument and an alternate normative form. The alternate version was found as reliable as the original, was equivalent in measuring characteristics, and demonstrated comparable construct…

Haller, Otto; Edgington, Eugene S. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
A general method for identifying the separate components of the Rod-and-Frame Test consists of correlating theoretical patterns of scores with obtained test scores of single subjects. The correlation test calculates probability values from the test data. In this way, fit can be determined between theoretical pattern and test scores. (Author/BW)

Bruvold, William H.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
Initial assessments of the item characteristics, reliability, and validity of the Inquiry Mode Questionnaire (IMQ) are reported. The IMQ was developed by (Harrison and Bramson) to measure the characteristic thinking style of individuals on five major dimensions: synthesist, idealist, analyst, realist, and pragmatist.

De Ciantis, Steven M.; Kirton, M. J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1996
An examination of the Experiential Learning Theory of D. Kolb (1974) and a revision of the Learning Style Questionnaire of P. Honey and A. Mumford (1992) using results from 185 middle managers from the United Kingdom and Ireland suggests that no 1 measure can represent all of Kolb's constructs, although Kolb's theoretical structure does emerge.…
