Chong, Sandra; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2000
Studied the internal consistency reliability and construct validity of scores on a Korean version of the Dimensions of Self-Concept Scale (W. Michael and R. Smith, 1976) with samples of 213, 191, and 213 junior high and high school students in Korea. Results generally support the internal consistency reliability and the construct validity of the…

Paik, Chie Matsuzawa; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2000
Added a sixth factor to the Dimensions of Self-Concept Scale-Form H (DOSC) (W. Michael and others, 1984), and examined its reliability and validity with a sample of 350 midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy. Results indicate satisfactory reliability for all six scales and an oblique six-factor model that supports the multidimensionality of the…

Michael, William B.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
The development and construct validation of the Dimensions of Self-Concept (DOSC), Form H, are described. The 20-item subscales of the preliminary research form furnished parallel estimates of reliability ranging from .83 to .91. The five subscales show promising construct validity, as evidenced by their factor structure. (Author/BW)

Michael, William B.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
The study determined whether the hypothesized constructs of the Dimensions of Self-Concept Scale (DOSC), a measure of academic self-concept, could be identified for a college sample as well as eighth-grade students. DOSC seemed to be a valid indicator of academic self-concept for college students. (Author/DWH)

Halote, Barry; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
Scores of 202 primarily Hispanic community college students were used to determine (1) the correlations of each of five factor subscales of a research form of the dimensions of Self-Concept (DOSC) measure with the Total Score of the Academic Self-Concept Scale and (2) the empirical factor structure of each instrument.

Darakjian, Gregory P.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
In a longitudinal investigation of 179 seventh graders, the current investigation covers a surviving sample of eleventh graders. Predictive validity coefficients of five Dimensions of Self-Concept (DOSC), Form S subscales were ascertained relative to total grade point average (GPA) and to GPA in several subjects during three enrollment periods.…

Darakjian, Gregory P.; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
Comparative predictive validities of 147 secondary school students were examined for six subtests of the SRA Assessment Survey and for five subscales of the Dimensions of Self-Concept relative to overall/grade point average (GPA) earned and to GPA achieved in English and mathematics courses.

Smith, Eleanor F.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1997
Evidence for the internal consistency-reliability and construct validity of scores on the 6 dimensions of the Dimensions of Self-Concept Scale was provided through results from 107 registered nurses. Confirmatory maximum likelihood factor analyses indicated that a six-factor oblique model accounted for the greatest proportion of the covariance.…

Paik, Chie; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1999
Studied the internal consistency reliability and construct validity of scores on each of five dimensions of a Japanese version of the Dimensions of Self-Concept Scale. Results for 354 female high school students show that a five-factor oblique model accounts for the greatest proportion of covariance in the matrix of 15 subtests. Contains 20…

Gribbons, Barry C.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1995
A study involving 174 at-risk undergraduate students provided evidence of the construct validity of 5 factors corresponding to scales of the Dimensions of Self-Concept measure. Evidence was obtained for a higher order general academic self-concept, but the anxiety factor was not related to this higher order factor. (SLD)

Villar, Irene de Aquino; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1995
Exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses provide evidence for the construct validity of the five subscales of a parallel Portuguese language version of the Dimensions of Self-Concept scale Form H. Subjects were 159 female and 236 male Brazilian college students. (SLD)

Caracosta, Rhea; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1986
This study investigated the construct and concurrent validity of a standardized academic self-concept measure--Dimensions of Self-Concept (DOSC) Form H--and a measure of locus of control involving learning-related activities--the Intellectual Achievement Responsibility Questionnaire (IAR). (LMO)

Gold, Yvonne; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1985
For 109 graduate students beginning their first semester of practice teaching at the elementary school level, the concurrent validity of five subscales of the measure of academic self-concept entitled Dimensions of Self-Concept was found relative to each of three criterion scales of the Maslach Burnout Inventory.

Darakjian, Gregory P.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1985
In a longitudinal investigation, the subscales of the Dimensions of Self-Concept revealed declining predictive validity coefficients relative to criteria of secondary school grades. However, the Level of Aspiration subscale consistently exhibited significant predictive validities of student success during each of four time segments. (Author/DWH)

Crowder, Betty; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1989
An experimental test was developed for the measurement of self-concept in an employment setting. Administering this six-factor Dimensions of Self-Concept test to 201 employees in an electronics/computer company resulted in a determination of internal consistency and reliability sufficient to justify testing a revised version based on statistical…
