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)

Data are reanalyzed using the appropriate scoring procedure for the EMAS. Subjects included 145 undergraduates in 1 of 4 testing conditions. (SLD)

A stratified random sample of 82 subjects, from 4 to 25 years of age, was used to examine relationships between intransitivity of paired-comparison relationships and age of subjects.

The effectiveness of four different imputation procedures (mean, conditional mean, hot deck, and regression) was compared in a two-variable prediction system using a sample of 18,869 college students.
