Papazoglou, Sofia; Mylonas, Kostas – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2017
The purpose of this study is to compare alternative multidimensional scaling (MDS) methods for constraining the stimuli on the circumference of a circle and on the surface of a sphere. Specifically, the existing MDS-T method for plotting the stimuli on the circumference of a circle is applied, and its extension is proposed for constraining the…

Wang, Qiu; Diemer, Matthew A.; Maier, Kimberly S. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2013
This study integrated Bayesian hierarchical modeling and receiver operating characteristic analysis (BROCA) to evaluate how interest strength (IS) and interest differentiation (ID) predicted low–socioeconomic status (SES) youth's interest-major congruence (IMC). Using large-scale Kuder Career Search online-assessment data, this study fit three…

Dumenci, Levent; Yates, Phillip D. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2012
Estimation problems associated with the correlated-trait correlated-method (CTCM) parameterization of a multitrait-multimethod (MTMM) matrix are widely documented: the model often fails to converge; even when convergence is achieved, one or more of the parameter estimates are outside the admissible parameter space. In this study, the authors…

Linnenbrink-Garcia, Lisa; Durik, Amanda M.; Conley, AnneMarie M.; Barron, Kenneth E.; Tauer, John M.; Karabenick, Stuart A.; Harackiewicz, Judith M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
Three studies were conducted to develop and validate scores on a new measure appropriate for assessing adolescents' situational interest (SI) across various academic settings. In Study 1 (n = 858), a self-report questionnaire was administered to undergraduates in introductory psychology. Confirmatory factor analyses (CFA) supported a three-factor…

Donnellan, M. Brent – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2008
The properties of the achievement goal inventories developed by Grant and Dweck (2003) and Elliot and McGregor (2001) were evaluated in two studies with a total of 780 participants. A four-factor specification for the Grant and Dweck inventory did not closely replicate results published in their original report. In contrast, the structure of the…

Clapham, Maria M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2004
This study compared scores on two divergent thinking tests, the Verbal and the Figural Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking (TTCT), with scores on two creativity interest inventories, Davis's How Do You Think? and Raudsepp's How Creative Are You? The creativity interest inventories showed weak correlations with the Verbal TTCT and no correlations…

Morgan, Ronald R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1976
Investigates the importance of using levels of intellectual ability as a control variable in studies of nonintellectual factors in academic achievement and determines the utility of the Edwards Personal Preference Schedule as a supplement to academic aptitude test scores in the prediction of success in college.

Johnson, Richard W.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
The predictive validity of the old and new men's Pharmacist scales and the new women's Pharmacist scale on the Strong Vocational Interest Blank was investigated for male and female pharmacy students. Each of the three scales significantly differentiated between graduates and nongraduates from the pharmacy program. (Author/BJG)

Belcastro, Frank P. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
A multiple regression analysis was performed on all Edwards Personal Preference Schedule (EPPS) and Strong Vocational Interest Blank (SVIB) scales to determine those scales which could be used to predict success in a secondary teacher preparation program for females and males. Significant discriminant function equations were obtained. (Author/BJG)

Olejnik, Stephen; Porter, Andrew C. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
The four scoring strategies compared were: lamda coefficients, chi-square weights, and two applications of multiple discriminant analysis. No significant differences were found when applied to the Kuder Occupational Interest Survey. (RC)

Zbaracki, Jacqueline U.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1985
The 121-item Children's Interest Inventory was administered to 517 children in grades four through six. Teachers also rated each child's scholastic, social, and creative ability. Factor analysis revealed nine boys' factors and eight girls'. Interests were not related to ability ratings, somewhat related to grade, and highly related to gender.…

Knapp-Lee, Lisa; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
This study (1) provided evidence concerning the construct validity of scales based on the clusters found in a revised, professional-level form of the California Occupational Preference System Interest Inventory and (2) examined the degree of internal consistency of the 16 newly devised subscales.

Iachan, Ronaldo – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
Measures of agreement for ordinal-scaled data are suggested that make use of the k categories with the highest ranks. The proposed measures are applied to the Self-Directed Search in order to evaluate its agreement with self-assessment (translation ability) or with the work environment (congruence). (Author)

Knapp-Lee, Lisa; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
This study evaluates the relationship of the Career Occupational Preference System, Interest Inventory, Form P (COPS-P) and the Theme and Basic Interest scales of the Strong-Campbell Interest Inventory (SCII) to provide construct validity data. Computed scale correlations for a college student sample (n=122) support the theoretical constructs…
