Hopko, Derek R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2003
Studied the construct validity of the revised Math Anxiety Rating Scale (L. Alexander and C. Martray, 1989) using a sample of 815 college students. Results show that the revised measure may represent a more parsimonious and valid measurement approach than the original scale for assessing mathematics anxiety. (SLD)

Ware, John E., Jr.; Williams, Reed G. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1977
College students viewed taped lectures which were systematically varied by lecturers's enthusiasm and amount of information presented. They then rated the lectures with a standard faculty evaluation form. Discriminant analysis was performed in order to derive optimal scoring methods for the form. (Author/JKS)

Forsyth, R.; Sadava, S. W. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1977
Four measures of college student drug use are investigated: frequency of cannabis use, time as a user, range of polydrug experimentation and self-reported adverse consequences of use. Implications for measurement development and for a multidimensional concept of drug use are discussed. (Author/JKS)

Ard, Nicholas; Cook, Stuart W. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1977
An existing multidimensional racial attitude inventory was adapted from an agree-disagree format to a rating format. Evidence is presented that this adaptation was successfully accomplished while maintaining strong correspondence to the original, validated instrument. (Author/JKS)

Nevo, Barukh – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1977
Item-test correlations are compared to item test-retest correlations as measures for selecting items in test construction. The author concludes that the item test-retest method is superior for item analysis which aims at getting shorter tests while maintaining test stability. (Author/JKS)

Neely, Renee – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1977
Discriminant function analysis was used to predict which college students were graduated in four years, were still enrolled after four years, left the college in good academic standing, or left after being on probation. Results were moderately successful. (Author/JKS)

Umble, M. Michael; Whitten, Betty J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1977
Dimensions of student attitude toward teacher behavior at the college level were investigated via factor analysis. Six factors were extracted and examined with a second sample and compared to dimensions discussed in the literature. (JKS)

Dispoto, Raymond G. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1977
Three of four scales from Maloney, Ward, and Braucht's revised or short-form ecology inventory were administered to college students, and were further validated. Unlike earlier findings, knowledge about ecology, the environment, and pollution was found to be predictive of actual behavior related to improving the environment. (Author/JKS)

Centra, John A.; Linn, Robert L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1976
Student points of view in their ratings of courses and instructors were analyzed within three specific college courses and then generalized by analysis of a sample of responses from over 400 classes in five colleges. A factor analysis yielding three different student points of view is presented. (Author/JKS)

Oles, Henry J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
Although students quickly form reasonably lasting judgments of their instructors and courses they are also able to alter their judgments as warranted by changing situations. These findings appear to provide support for the validity of student evaluations. (Author/RC)

Smith, Jessi L.; White, Paul H. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2001
Examined the psychometric properties of an individual difference measure of identification within the mathematics and English domains. Factor analytic results substantiated the presence of English and Mathematics subscales, which yielded scores that were internally consistent and stable over time. Results for samples of 1,143 and 98 college…

This study reports on the development and psychometric properties of a new 87-item Mathematics Information Processing Scale that explores learning strategies, metacognitive problem-solving skills, and attentional deployment. Results with 340 college students support the use of the instrument, for which factor analysis identified five theoretically…
