McGrath, Kathleen V.; Leighton, Elizabeth A.; Ene, Mihaela; DiStefano, Christine; Monrad, Diane M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2020
Survey research frequently involves the collection of data from multiple informants. Results, however, are usually analyzed by informant group, potentially ignoring important relationships across groups. When the same construct(s) are measured, integrative data analysis (IDA) allows pooling of data from multiple sources into one data set to…

Nugent, William R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2017
Meta-analysis is a significant methodological advance that is increasingly important in research synthesis. Fundamental to meta-analysis is the presumption that effect sizes, such as the standardized mean difference (SMD), based on scores from different measures are comparable. It has been argued that population observed score SMDs based on scores…

Nugent, William Robert; Moore, Matthew; Story, Erin – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2015
The standardized mean difference (SMD) is perhaps the most important meta-analytic effect size. It is typically used to represent the difference between treatment and control population means in treatment efficacy research. It is also used to represent differences between populations with different characteristics, such as persons who are…

Wheeler, Denna L.; Vassar, Matt; Worley, Jody A.; Barnes, Laura L. B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2011
The purpose of this study was to synthesize internal consistency reliability for the subscale scores on the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI). The authors addressed three research questions: (a) What is the mean subscale score reliability for the MBI across studies? (b) What factors are associated with observed variance in MBI subscale score…

Hardin, Andrew M.; Chang, Jerry Cha-Jan; Fuller, Mark A.; Torkzadeh, Gholamreza – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2011
The use of causal indicators to formatively measure latent constructs appears to be on the rise, despite what appears to be a troubling lack of consistency in their application. Scholars in any discipline are responsible not only for advancing theoretical knowledge in their domain of study but also for addressing methodological issues that…

Kim, Eun Sook; Willson, Victor L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
This article presents a method to evaluate pretest effects on posttest scores in the absence of an un-pretested control group using published results of pretesting effects due to Willson and Putnam. Confidence intervals around the expected theoretical gain due to pretesting are computed, and observed gains or differential gains are compared with…

Skidmore, Susan Troncoso; Thompson, Bruce – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
The purpose of the present study is to provide a historical account and metasynthesis of which statistical techniques are most frequently used in the fields of education and psychology. Six articles reviewing the "American Educational Research Journal" from 1969 to 1997 and five articles reviewing the psychological literature from 1948 to 2001…

Kuncel, Nathan R.; Wee, Serena; Serafin, Lauren; Hezlett, Sarah A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
Extensive research has examined the effectiveness of admissions tests for use in higher education. What has gone unexamined is the extent to which tests are similarly effective for predicting performance at both the master's and doctoral levels. This study empirically synthesizes previous studies to investigate whether or not the Graduate Record…

Marin-Martinez, Fulgencio; Sanchez-Meca, Julio – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
Most of the statistical procedures in meta-analysis are based on the estimation of average effect sizes from a set of primary studies. The optimal weight for averaging a set of independent effect sizes is the inverse variance of each effect size, but in practice these weights have to be estimated, being affected by sampling error. When assuming a…

Huang, Chiungjung – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2009
This study examined the percentage of task-sampling variability in performance assessment via a meta-analysis. In total, 50 studies containing 130 independent data sets were analyzed. Overall results indicate that the percentage of variance for (a) differential difficulty of task was roughly 12% and (b) examinee's differential performance of the…

Van Horn, Pamela S.; Green, Kathy E.; Martinussen, Monica – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2009
This article reports results of a meta-analysis of survey response rates in published research in counseling and clinical psychology over a 20-year span and describes reported survey administration procedures in those fields. Results of 308 survey administrations showed a weighted average response rate of 49.6%. Among possible moderators, response…

Romano, Jeanine L.; Kromrey, Jeffrey D. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2009
This study was conducted to evaluate alternative analysis strategies for the meta-analysis method of reliability generalization when the reliability estimates are not statistically independent. Five approaches to dealing with the violation of independence were implemented: ignoring the violation and treating each observation as independent,…

Cheung, Shu Fai; Chan, Darius K.-S. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2008
In meta-analysis, it is common to have dependent effect sizes, such as several effect sizes from the same sample but measured at different times. Cheung and Chan proposed the adjusted-individual and adjusted-weighted procedures to estimate the degree of dependence and incorporate this estimate in the meta-analysis. The present study extends the…

Worley, Jody A.; Vassar, Matt; Wheeler, Denna L.; Barnes, Laura L. B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2008
This study provides a summary of 45 exploratory and confirmatory factor-analytic studies that examined the internal structure of scores obtained from the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI). It highlights characteristics of the studies that account for differences in reporting of the MBI factor structure. This approach includes an examination of the…

Wang, Shudong; Jiao, Hong; Young, Michael J.; Brooks, Thomas; Olson, John – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2008
In recent years, computer-based testing (CBT) has grown in popularity, is increasingly being implemented across the United States, and will likely become the primary mode for delivering tests in the future. Although CBT offers many advantages over traditional paper-and-pencil testing, assessment experts, researchers, practitioners, and users have…
