Talento-Miller, Eileen; Rudner, Lawrence M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2008
The validity of Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) scores is examined by summarizing 273 studies conducted between 1997 and 2004. Each of the studies was conducted through the Validity Study Service of the test sponsor and contained identical variables and statistical methods. Validity coefficients from each of the studies were corrected…

Milner, Marlene; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
Based on a sample of 145 graduate students in social work, results indicated that the Graduate Record Examination, as a primary basis for admission, is not a valid predictor of future performance in schools of social work. Moreover, its elimination does not produce a lower quality of student. (Author/BW)

Michael, Joan J.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
The predictive validity of eight variables (the undergraduate grade point average (GPA) and the quantitative, verbal, and total scores of the Undergraduate Record Examinations and the Graduate Record Examinations) were evaluated relative to graduate GPA for graduate students who had completed masters' degree programs in education.

Broadus, Robert N.; Elmore, Kenneth E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
The validities of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and of undergraduate grade point averages (GPAs) in the prediction of graduate GPAs and a comprehensive examination were compared using a sample of 257 master's degree candidates in a school of library science. GRE verbal scores were the most valid predictors of success. (Author/PN)

Youngblood, Stuart A.; Martin, Billy J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1982
A nonadditive linear model consisting of both Graduate Management Admission Test scores and undergraduate grades adequately portrayed the decision-making process of a Master of Business Administration program admissions officer. The results are discussed in light of the recent criticisms of the use of standardized tests as admissions criteria.…

Paolillo, Joseph G. P. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1982
Stepwise linear regression analysis determined the relative importance of the selection variables used in predicting graduate grade point average in a Masters of Business Administration program. Nonquantitative admissions measures which might be used for the same purpose are briefly discussed. (Author/PN)

Kluever, Raymond C.; Green, Kathy E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1998
Individual differences in responsibility may be observed in a doctoral candidate's assumption of responsibility for completing the doctoral dissertation. Responses to the Responsibility Scale by 142 doctoral graduates and 97 nongraduates (all but dissertation) show that two factors underlie responses to the scale. Appendix contains the…

Ponterotto, Joseph G.; Baluch, Suraiya; Greig, Tamasine; Rivera, Lourdes – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1998
Two coordinated studies involving 429 teachers and preservice teachers and 227 education graduate students were designed to develop and validate scores on an efficient self-report measure of multicultural awareness for teachers working in kindergarten through grade 12. The construct and criterion validity and reliability of the developed Teacher…

Mick, David Glen – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2000
Suggest that the call for more pointed graduate education and more affirmative journal policies on replication-extension made by R. Hubbard and P. Ryan is useful, although inadequate and probably pointless. Statistical significance testing appears to be here to stay despite the charge that it is of "marginal scientific value." (SLD)

Chernyshenko, Oleksandr S.; Ones, Deniz S. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1999
Examined the selection ratio for 253 doctorate-level psychology programs. Used the selection ratio to estimate the existing range restriction on the Graduate Examination (GRE) (referred to as General Record Examination) scores in validation studies. Results show that the GRE is a valid predictor of graduate school performance. (SLD)

Nilsson, Johanna E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1995
Predictive relationships between the scores of the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) and graduate grade point average (GGPA) and the scores of the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) and GGPA were studied for 60 college students. The GRE had a stronger correlation to GGPA than the GMAT. (SLD)

Breaugh, James A.; Mann, Rebecca B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1981
The extent to which successful completion of the Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree could be predicted from readily available admissions data was examined. Results of the discriminant analysis showed that the two criterion groups (graduates and nongraduates) could be differentiated. (Author/GK)

Kirnan, Jean Powell; Geisinger, Kurt F. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1981
Traditional graduate school admissions indices were used to predict performance on a screening examination called the Master's Comprehensive (MACOMP). The major finding was the similarity of prediction of MACOMP performance for clinical and experimental psychology students. (Author/GK)

Omizo, Michael M.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
This study examined the predictive validity of the 18 scales of the California Psychological Inventory and two scales of the Opinion Scale relative to success criteria in graduate school as measured by grades in individual courses, performance on the master's comprehensive examinations and graduate grade-point average.

Furst, Edward J.; Roelfs, Pamela J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
The predictive validity of the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) and the Miller Analogies Test (MAT) in a doctoral program in education was investigated. Results supported the use of the GRE but not the MAT. (Author/JKS)
