Raykov, Tenko; Marcoulides, George A.; Li, Tenglong – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2017
The measurement error in principal components extracted from a set of fallible measures is discussed and evaluated. It is shown that as long as one or more measures in a given set of observed variables contains error of measurement, so also does any principal component obtained from the set. The error variance in any principal component is shown…

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)

Bernardi, Richard A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1994
Using a factorially complex test on a highly homogeneous population is explored, and a procedure is demonstrated that can statistically justify using a cognitive test on which Cronbach's alpha is low. The example involves 649 accountants (auditors). Results indicate that unbundling test and sample provides justification for using the data. (SLD)

Arthur, Winfred, Jr.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1994
Effects of choice of data analysis program on outcomes of meta-analysis were studied by considering the extent to which four commonly used Schmidt and Hunter validity generalization-based meta-analytic software programs produce identical outcomes. Differences were minor and did not influence outcomes. (SLD)

Marsh, Herbert W. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
This study compares multitrait-multimethod analyses (MTMM) performed on items and factor scores derived from the items. Based upon this demonstration, researchers are encouraged to conduct a preliminary factor analysis before analyzing MTMM data whenever there is a doubt about the underlying trait structure.

Mace, David E.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1985
Through use of confirmatory maximum likelihood factor analysis in conjunction with the LISREL V computer program, an evaluation was made of the validity of higher-order ability constructs in structure-of-intellect tests all containing semantic content and operations of cognition or evaluation.

Tesser, Abraham; Krauss, Herbert – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1976
Investigates the question of under what conditions can one infer that some observed relationship between two empirical variables reflects more than that they are both indicants of the same construct. (RC)
