Pomplun, Mark; Omar, Hafidz; Custer, Michael – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2004
The present study compares vertical scaling results for the Rasch model from BILOG-MG and WINSTEPS. The item and ability parameters for the real and simulated mathematics tests were scaled across five grades, second to sixth. The simulated data were based on real data for a series of mathematics tests for Grades 2 to 6. The results from WINSTEPS…

Watkins, Marley W.; Greenawalt, Chris G.; Marcel, Catherine M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2002
Applied factor analysis to the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Third Edition (WISC-III) scores for 505 gifted students, to evaluate the construct validity of the WISC-III with this population. Results are consistent with the hypothesis that subtests that emphasize speed of reading are not valid for gifted children and suggest that an…

Ten self concept measures and two achievement tests were examined for fourth and sixth grade Mexican-Americans, Caucasians, Blacks, Vietnamese, other Asian, and pupils of mixed ethnicity. Pupil self-update of self concept revealed negligible relationships with teacher ratings of achievement, although teacher observations of pupil self concept…

Ryan, James J.; French, James R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1976
Results show that the achievement test is as valid a predictor as the verbal intelligence test and that both tests are more valid than the nonverbal intelligence test and nearly as valid as previous grades for predicting later grades. (Author/DEP)

Lewis, John; Adank, Richard – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
Determines the intercorrelations among measures of intelligence, achievement, self-esteem, and anxiety among elementary pupils who were enrolled in two different styles of instruction: a traditional self-contained structure and an open school using the Westinghouse PLAN system of computer-backed individualized instruction.

Lewis, John; Adank, Richard – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
A study of the relationship between attitudes toward school and learning among pupils in grades one through six in two different models of instruction revealed four significant correlations among twelve calculated. The implication was that attitudes toward school were not systematically related to learning among elementary pupils. (Author)

Ward, William C. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
Fourth through sixth grade children were given two types of creativity measures--divergent measures, naming all the ideas he could meeting a simple requirement, and convergent measures, adaptation of Mednick's Remote Associates Test, finding one word associatively related to each of three others. The measures shared little variance. (Author/RC)

Meier, Robert; McDaniel, Ernest – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1974
A scale was developed to measure attitude toward school among elementary school pupils. Scores on the questionnaire were positively correlated with teacher ratings of school attitudes, non-verbal ability, standardized tests of school achievement and self-concept scores for a sample of fourth grade pupils.

Crowther, Henry I. G.; Preece, Peter F. W. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
Instruments were developed to measure the confidence and self-image of preservice elementary school teachers in relation to both biology and physical science. High reliability and convergent and discriminant validity were displayed by the instruments, both in the initial test development stage and in subsequent confirmatory studies. (Author)

Crowther, Henry I. G.; Preece, Peter F. W. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
An instrument was developed to measure students' perceptions of twelve specific features in the learning environment for science instruction in institutions concerned with preservice elementary teacher education. The instrument appears to be promising for the investigation of individual differences in perception and differences in learning…

Crehan, Kevin D. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2001
Used a multitrait-multimethod approach to investigate the validity of scores on locally prepared performance assessments taken by 6,000 third and fourth graders in reading, language arts, and mathematics. A partial explanation for the lack of construct validity evidence for the performance assessment scores is the probable low reliability of…

Banerji, Madhabi; Ferron, John – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1998
Three analytic approaches were used in a framework of classical test theory to examine the construct validity of a mathematics assessment of 16 constructed response items. Results from 280 elementary school students across four age groups suggest a developmental structure of tasks and subdomains that was generally consistent with the test's…
