Capraro, Mary Margaret; Capraro, Robert M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2003
Studied the reporting preferences of editorial board members of four scholarly journals in education and psychology with regard to analytic practices in the fifth edition of the American Psychological Association "Publication Manual." Responses of 106 board members show the movement toward reform in research reporting practices. (SLD)

Whittington, Dale – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1998
This study describes how much and in what ways authors of research studies fail to include adequate information about data collection. Results based on analysis of 220 articles from 22 journals show that the quality of measurement reporting continues to be a problem. (SLD)

Qualls, Audrey L.; Moss, Angela D. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1996
The extent to which testing practices complied with professional guidelines regarding reliability and validity evidence was studied in research appearing in American Psychological Association journals. Documentation of reliability and validity was reported for 20% of the 2,157 instruments studied in these papers. About half supported one or the…

Thompson, Bruce; Daniel, Larry G. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1996
Editorial board members of "Educational and Psychological Measurement" were asked to list up to five publications each, written since roughly 1950, that they thought were seminal to shaping the measurement field. This bibliography lists 59 of their selections as a "hit parade" of measurement readings. (SLD)

Aiken, Lewis R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1994
Three dozen observations and recommendations concerning the activities of research consultants in the behavioral sciences are listed and discussed. These guidelines, some stated as aphorisms, are discussed in the categories of planning; implementation; analysis; interpretation; and reporting. (Author/SLD)

Hogan, Thomas P.; Benjamin, Amy; Brezinski, Kristen L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2000
Examined the frequency of use of various types of reliability coefficients for a sample of 696 tests in a directory published by the American Psychological Association. Coefficient alpha was the overwhelming favorite, and several measures treated almost universally in textbooks were rarely or never used. Identifies problems encountered in the…

Fan, Xitao; Chen, Michael – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2000
Provides a sample of seven published studies in different disciplines that inappropriately generalized reliability coefficients involving several raters to scores generated by a single rater. Score reliability when only one rater is used for scoring is lower than the score reliability for which two raters are used. (SLD)

Finch, Sue; Cumming, Geoff; Thomason, Neil – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2001
Analyzed 150 articles from the "Journal of Applied Psychology" (JAP) from 1940 to 1999 to determine statistical reporting practices related to null hypothesis significance testing, American Psychological Association guidelines, and reform recommendations. Findings show little evidence that decades of cogent criticisms by reformers have…

Thompson, Bruce – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2001
Introduces the three subsequent articles from this special section, which extend the discussion of future prospects for progress in the reporting and interpreting of effect sizes by researchers. The authors of these pieces represent diverse views. (SLD)

Kirk, Roger E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2001
Makes the case that science is best served when researchers focus on the size of effects and their practical significance. Advocates the use of confidence intervals for deciding whether chance or sampling variability is an unlikely explanation for an observed effect. Calls for more emphasis on effect sizes in the next edition of the American…

Vacha-Haase, Tammi – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2001
Researchers, journal editors, textbook authors, and those responsible for writing publication manuals must work together to enhance the thoughtful reporting of statistical results and to make clear the necessity for reporting effect sizes. (SLD)

Hyde, Janet Shibley – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2001
Suggests that researchers should report the results of appropriate significance tests and the effect sizes associated with each test. Discusses the roles of textbook authors, publication manuals, and journal editors in leading the movement to better statistical reporting. (SLD)

Fan, Xitao; Thompson, Bruce – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2001
Illustrates a number of ways in which confidence intervals for reliability coefficients can be estimated. Suggests that authors who submit articles to "Educational and Psychological Measurement" report confidence intervals for reliability estimates whenever they report score reliabilities and that they note the interval estimation…

Cumming, Geoff; Finch, Sue – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2001
Discusses four reasons for promoting the use of confidence intervals: (1) ease of interpretation; (2) links with familiar statistical tests; (3) promotion of meta-analytic thinking; and (4) increase of information about precision. Discusses calculations of confidence intervals for a basic standardized effect size measure and discusses software for…
