Mudrack, Peter E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1997
The Time Structure Questionnaire (M. J. Bond and N. T. Feather, 1988) and the Time Management Behavior Scale (T. H. Macan and colleagues, 1990) were evaluated through results from 701 and 453 adults respectively. Results confirm the importance of examining subscales of these measures rather than simply aggregate scores. (SLD)

Young, John W. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1995
Two statistical approaches for adjusting grades were tested on data obtained from four American law schools (642 students). Neither item response theory nor the general linear model yielded consistent improvements in the predictive validity of Law School Admission Test scores and undergraduate grades for three schools.

Pomplun, Mark; Capps, Lee – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1999
Studied gender differences in answers to constructed-response mathematics items on approximately 500 papers from grades 7 and 10 from the Kansas Assessment Program. Rubric-relevant variables were highly predictive of holistic scores and accounted for some of the gender differences, especially in grade 7. (SLD)

Ayers, Jerry B.; Quattlebaum, Rebecca F. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1992
The relationship between grade point average (GPA) and scores on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) for 60 male and 7 female Asian graduate students in engineering was studied. The TOEFL is not an effective predictor of total GPA, although it measures English communication skills. (SLD)

Graham, Lawrence D. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1991
Selection criteria at a graduate school of business were examined in a study evaluating the predictive validity of the Graduate Management Admissions Test and the Miller Analogies Test for 203 recent graduates. Implications of the correlations between test results and grade point average for admission policy are discussed. (SLD)

Mason, Elizabeth M.; Wenck, L. Stanley – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1989
Cognitive differences between 987 LD children and 178 EH children in public schools on a psychoeducational assessment battery were studied, and differences in factor structure were investigated. Caution is suggested in interpreting the results of multivariate statistical analyses, which indicated heterogeneity in the matrices of LD and EH…

Wilcox, Rand R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
For some situations the beta-binomial distribution might be used to describe the marginal distribution of test scores for a particular population of examinees. Several different methods of approximating the maximum likelihood estimate were investigated, and it was found that the Newton-Raphson method should be used when it yields admissable…
