McArdle, John J.; Hamagami, Fumiaki; Bautista, Randy; Onoye, Jane; Hishinuma, Earl S.; Prescott, Carol A.; Takeshita, Junji; Zonderman, Alan B.; Johnson, Ronald C. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2014
In this study, we reanalyzed the classic Hawai'i Family Study of Cognition (HFSC) data using contemporary multilevel modeling techniques. We used the HFSC baseline data ("N" = 6,579) and reexamined the factorial structure of 16 cognitive variables using confirmatory (restricted) measurement models in an explicit sequence. These models…

Singer, Sandra; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
An eight test battery was constructed to measure four specific cognitive abilities in preschool children: verbal skill, memory, perceptual speed, and spatial ability. Based on results of factor analyses of the testing of 98 three year olds, a shorter version, consisting of four tests, was devised which shows promising validity. (Author/BS)

Carver, Ronald P. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1992
Reliability and validity of a new measure of cognitive speed, the Speed of Thinking Test (SST), were investigated with 129 college students, who also completed a vocabulary test, a test of reading speed, and a test of reading comprehension. The SST appears to be a reliable and valid measure. (SLD)

Rice, Treva; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1986
A battery of nine cognitive abilities tests to assess verbal, spatial, perceptual speed, and memory abilities in children at age four was constructed and administered to a sample of 267 children in the Colorado Adoption Project. Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses revealed four correlated factors that adequately describe the covariation…

Powers, Stephen; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1986
The predictive validity of the Standard Progressive Matrices (SPM) was examined with a sample of 212 sixth-grade students and 214 seventh-grade students. Correlation coefficients between the SPM and the California Achievement Tests of Reading, Language, and Mathematics ranged from .34 to .60. (Author/LMO)

Henry, Paul; Bardo, Harold R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1987
This study examined the predictive validity of the Developing Cognitive Abilities Test (DCAT), a test similar in form to traditional intelligence tests but developed along a format that included both a cognitive taxonomy and content areas. Students in fourth through twelfth grades were administered the DCAT and the Achievement Series Test.…

Farley, Mary Jane; Elmore, Patricia B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1992
Relationships between reading comprehension (RC) and critical thinking skills, vocabulary, and cognitive ability were examined using 3 tests with 165 underachieving first-year college students in a remedial reading class. The Iowa Silent Reading Test's vocabulary subtest best predicted RC. The Developing Cognitive Abilities Test's three subtests…

Martin, John D.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1981
The California Psychological Inventory (CPI), the Slosson Intelligence Test (SIT), and the Shipley-Institute of Living Scale (SILS) were administered to undergraduates. The Intellectual Efficiency scale scores were correlated .52 with the SIT scores and .39 with the SILS scores. The SIT and SILS were correlated .49. (Author/GK)

Favero, Jane; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
For a sample of 152 children in grades 2 to 6, interest centered upon concurrent validity of measures of empathy and social sensitivity as conceptualized within the behavioral segment of Guilford's structure-of-intellect model and a criterion measure represented by a standardized test of academic performance.
