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)

Used latent means analysis in the framework of structural equation modeling to explore the factor structure and gender differences associated with the Personal Style Inventory (PSI; C. Robins and others, 1994) with 508 Korean undergraduates. Results support the cross-cultural stability of the PSI factor structure. Women had higher scores than men…

McCarthy, Julie M.; Goffin, Richard D. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2002
Studied the psychometric properties of the Test Attitude Survey (R. Arvey and others, 1990) with a sample of 242 undergraduates. Results indicate adequate convergent validity for scores on the TAS, but there is room for improvement in the overall structural validity of scores on this measure. (SLD)

Hamilton, Richard J.; Akhter, Selina – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2002
Studied the construct validity of the dimensions of the Multidimensional-Multiattributional Causality Scale based on B. Wiener's attribution model (1979) in achievement and affiliation goal domains. Results for 172 New Zealand college students provide evidence that the measure is better used as a goal specific measure than a general measure. (SLD)

Stumpf, Heinrich; Stanley, Julian C. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2002
Studied prediction of college freshman performance and graduation in U.S. colleges by examining aggregated data at the institutional level for 1,429 4-year institutions.

Thompson, Bruce; Cook, Collen – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2002
Conducted a reliability generalization meta-analysis of subscale and total scale scores on the Web-administered LibQUAL+ (tm) (Cook and others, 2002), a measure of library service quality. Data for 18,161 participants from 43 universities show that score reliabilities are remarkably invariant across campuses and different over groups. (SLD)

Melancon, Janet G. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2002
Studied the reliability, structure, and criterion-related validity of the Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI; C. Weinstein, 1987) using data from 502 university students. Results suggest that the LASSI may not measure the postulated 10 scales typically used to report results. (SLD)

Studied the use of an automated grader to score essays holistically and by rating traits through two experiments that evaluated 807 Web-based essays and then compared 386 essays to evaluations by 6 human raters. Results show the essay grading software to be efficient and able to grade about six documents a second. (SLD)
