Dimitrov, Dimiter M.; Raykov, Tenko; AL-Qataee, Abdullah Ali – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2015
This article is concerned with developing a measure of general academic ability (GAA) for high school graduates who apply to colleges, as well as with the identification of optimal weights of the GAA indicators in a linear combination that yields a composite score with maximal reliability and maximal predictive validity, employing the framework of…

Schroeders, Ulrich; Wilhelm, Oliver – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2011
Whether an ability test delivered on either paper or computer provides the same information is an important question in applied psychometrics. Besides the validity, it is also the fairness of a measure that is at stake if the test medium affects performance. This study provides a comprehensive review of existing equivalence research in the field…

Martin, Andrew J.; Malmberg, Lars-Erik; Liem, Gregory Arief D. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
Statistical biases associated with single-level analyses underscore the importance of partitioning variance/covariance matrices into individual and group levels. From a multilevel perspective based on data from 21,579 students in 58 high schools, the present study assesses the multilevel factor structure of motivation and engagement with a…

Aydin, Yesim Capa; Uzuntiryaki, Esen – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2009
The aim of this study was to develop a scale assessing high school students' self-efficacy beliefs in chemistry-related tasks and to assess psychometric properties of scores on this scale. A pilot study with a sample of 150 high school students provided initial evidence for two-factor structure of 16-item scale, named High School Chemistry…

Arce-Ferrer, Alvaro J.; Guzman, Elvira Martinez – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2009
This study investigates the effect of mode of administration of the Raven Standard Progressive Matrices test on distribution, accuracy, and meaning of raw scores. A random sample of high school students take counterbalanced paper-and-pencil and computer-based administrations of the test and answer a questionnaire surveying preferences for…

Green-Demers, Isabelle; Legault, Lisa; Pelletier, Daniel; Pelletier, Luc G. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2008
Motivation deficits are common in high school and constitute a significant problem for both students and teachers. The Academic Amotivation Inventory (AAI) was developed to measure the multidimensional nature of the academic amotivation construct (Legault, Green-Demers, & Pelletier, 2006). The present project further examined the consistency…

Martin, Andrew J.; Marsh, Herbert W.; Debus, Raymond L.; Malmberg, Lars-Erik – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2008
This investigation assesses performance and mastery orientation from a Rasch perspective among high school and university students and provides a complementary approach to the factor analytic methods typical in goal theory research. Data shows that both school and university students are high in mastery orientation relative to performance…

Sparfeldt, Jorn R.; Schilling, Susanne R.; Rost, Detlef H.; Thiel, Alexandra – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2006
The notion of item context effects implies that psychometric properties of an item or scale are altered by the presentation format, for example, blocked versus randomized. In an experimental study with high school students, the experimental group (n = 407) answered a four-dimensional academic self-concept questionnaire, in which the items were…

Nelis, Sharon M.; Rae, Gordon; Liddell, Christine – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2006
The factor structure of the Family Emotional Involvement and Criticism Scale (FEICS) is tested in a sample of Irish adolescents. Participants were 661 adolescents with a mean age of 15.9 years (SD = 1.26). Interpretation of both the exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis of the FEICS show support for the two-factor structure of the FEICS…

Brunner, Martin; SuB, Heinz-Martin – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2005
Two aspects of the reliability of multidimensional measures can be distinguished: the amount of scale score variance that is accounted for by all underlying factors (composite reliability) and the degree to which the scale score reflects one particular factor (construct reliability). Confidence intervals for composite and construct reliabilities…

Nielsen, Ingrid L.; Moore, Kathleen A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2003
Studied descriptive measurement reliability and validity of scores from the newly developed Mathematics Self-Efficacy Scale (MSES) for class and test with a sample of 302 Australian high school students. Results provide some evidence for the psychometric properties of the MSES in both contexts, but there is evidence of failure to counterbalance…

Ben-Shakhar, Gershon; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1996
A threshold utility model was used to assess the usefulness of adding a scholastic aptitude test to a selection system for applicants to a liberal arts program. Results with 426 subjects indicated that the test added little in recruiting students who passed, but did help in identifying potentially excellent students. (SLD)

Samuelstuen, Marit S. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2002
Examined whether the Learning and Study Strategies Inventory-High School Version (LASSI-HS; C. Weinstein and D. Palmer, 1990) would yield reliable and valid scores in a Norwegian translation with Norwegian students. Results for 271 10th graders support the factor model proposed by B. Olaussen and I. Braten (1998). (SLD)

Arce-Ferrer, Alvaro J.; Ketterer, John J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2002
Findings for high school students in Mexico (n=3,153 and n=400) administered a career decision making self-efficacy scale show that tailoring the scale with the best etic and emic items neither improved recovery of the factor-structure nor reduced the effects of the extreme-response style variable.

Murphy, P. Karen; Alexander, Patricia A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1998
The psychometric properties of the Learning and Study Strategies Inventory-High School (LASSI-HS) was studied with 139 female high school students from Singapore. Results indicate that the LASSI-HS yields reliable measures of learning and study behaviors, but the underlying structure of the measure suggested in its manual was not supported. (SLD)
