Wilcox, Rand R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
A problem of considerable importance in certain educational settings is determining how many items to include on a mastery test. Applying ranking and selection procedures, a solution is given which includes as a special case all existing single-stage, non-Bayesian solutions based on a strong true-score model. (Author/JKS)

And Others; Werts, Charles E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
It is shown how partial covariance, part and partial correlation, and regression weights can be estimated and tested for significance by means of a factor analytic model. Comparable partial covariance, correlations, and regression weights have identical significance tests. (Author)

Myerberg, N. James – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
The effect of stratified sampling of items based on item difficulty and/or interitem correlations on the estimation of test score distribution parameters using multiple matrix sampling was studied. Results indicated that stratification did not consistently improve the stability of parameter estimation. (Author/JKS)

Keren, Gideon; Lewis, Charles – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
The importance of measuring the size of an effect for fixed effects factorial analysis of variance designs is emphasized. Technical issues in such measurement are considered and examples are provided. (Author/JKS)

Reardon, Maryellen; Waters, L. K. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
Standard graphic, behaviorally-anchored, and mixed standard scales were used to investigate the relationships among scale types, instructor leniency, and ratings of college instructors by college students. (JKS)

Crowther, Henry I. G.; Preece, Peter F. W. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
Instruments were developed to measure the confidence and self-image of preservice elementary school teachers in relation to both biology and physical science. High reliability and convergent and discriminant validity were displayed by the instruments, both in the initial test development stage and in subsequent confirmatory studies. (Author)

Crowther, Henry I. G.; Preece, Peter F. W. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
An instrument was developed to measure students' perceptions of twelve specific features in the learning environment for science instruction in institutions concerned with preservice elementary teacher education. The instrument appears to be promising for the investigation of individual differences in perception and differences in learning…

Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
Factor scale scores are sometimes used as weights to create composite variables representing the variables included in a factor analysis. If these composite variables are then used to predict some dependent variable, serious theoretical and methodological problems arise. This paper explores these problems and suggests strategies for circumventing…

Wilcox, Rand R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
Wilcox has described three probability models which characterize a single test item in terms of a population of examinees (ED 156 718). This note indicates indicates that similar models can be derived which characterize a single examinee in terms of an item domain. A numerical illustration is given. (Author/JKS)

Huynh, Huynh; Perney, Jan – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
A procedure is described for the determination of individual mastery scores when instructional units are sequenced in a linear hierarchy. It can be used when data for the entire sequence have been obtained. The process entails working backwards, from the final test to the first. (Author/JKS)

Read, Robert R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
Students' perception of overall teaching performance is strongly aligned with feelings about the course. A method is presented for separating the effects of the teacher, the course, and individual student groups. All three effects are highly significant; the effect of the course is by far the most prominent. (Author/JKS)

Benson, Jeri; Crocker, Linda – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
As achievement in basic reading declines, the content validity of tests in special subjects may be reduced because examinees cannot read the test items. This study found that reading ability and item format affected test scores in the area of health science for a sample of high school students. (Author/JKS)

Panackal, Abraham A.; Heft, Carl S. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1978
Two multiple choice forms of two cloze reading tests were developed from responses to the cloze forms by college undergraduates. These tests were investigated using the original keys, empirical keys, and option weighted keys. Reliability and validity data are reported. (Author/JKS)

Abbott, Robert D.; Perkins, David – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1978
The development and implementation in a psychology department of a set of student rating-of-instruction items was discussed. The results of item descriptive statistics, correlational, and principal component analysis supported the construct validity of the items. (Author)

Mehrabian, Albert – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1978
Reliability and validity data are presented for three orthogonal measures of temperament: trait-pleasure, trait-arousal, and trait-dominance. Reliability coefficients for the three scales were .91, .60, and .84, respectively. Intercorrelations among the three scales were insignificant and low. (Author/JKS)
