Attali, Yigal – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2016
Performance of students in low-stakes testing situations has been a concern and focus of recent research. However, researchers who have examined the effect of stakes on performance have not been able to compare low-stakes performance to truly high-stakes performance of the same students. Results of such a comparison are reported in this article.…

Liu, Ou Lydia; Bridgeman, Brent; Gu, Lixiong; Xu, Jun; Kong, Nan – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2015
Research on examinees' response changes on multiple-choice tests over the past 80 years has yielded some consistent findings, including that most examinees make score gains by changing answers. This study expands the research on response changes by focusing on a high-stakes admissions test--the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning measures…

Huang, Hung-Yu; Wang, Wen-Chung – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2013
Both testlet design and hierarchical latent traits are fairly common in educational and psychological measurements. This study aimed to develop a new class of higher order testlet response models that consider both local item dependence within testlets and a hierarchy of latent traits. Due to high dimensionality, the authors adopted the Bayesian…

Davison, Mark L.; Semmes, Robert; Huang, Lan; Close, Catherine N. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2012
Data from 181 college students were used to assess whether math reasoning item response times in computerized testing can provide valid and reliable measures of a speed dimension. The alternate forms reliability of the speed dimension was .85. A two-dimensional structural equation model suggests that the speed dimension is related to the accuracy…

Kuncel, Nathan R.; Wee, Serena; Serafin, Lauren; Hezlett, Sarah A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
Extensive research has examined the effectiveness of admissions tests for use in higher education. What has gone unexamined is the extent to which tests are similarly effective for predicting performance at both the master's and doctoral levels. This study empirically synthesizes previous studies to investigate whether or not the Graduate Record…

Stricker, Lawrence J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
The stability was evaluated of a partial correlation index, comparisons of item characteristic curves, and comparisions of item difficulties in assessing race and sex differences in the performance of verbal items on the Graduate Record Examination Aptitude Test. All three indexes exhibited consistency in identifying the same items in different…

Milner, Marlene; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1984
Based on a sample of 145 graduate students in social work, results indicated that the Graduate Record Examination, as a primary basis for admission, is not a valid predictor of future performance in schools of social work. Moreover, its elimination does not produce a lower quality of student. (Author/BW)

Michael, Joan J.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
The predictive validity of eight variables (the undergraduate grade point average (GPA) and the quantitative, verbal, and total scores of the Undergraduate Record Examinations and the Graduate Record Examinations) were evaluated relative to graduate GPA for graduate students who had completed masters' degree programs in education.

Broadus, Robert N.; Elmore, Kenneth E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
The validities of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and of undergraduate grade point averages (GPAs) in the prediction of graduate GPAs and a comprehensive examination were compared using a sample of 257 master's degree candidates in a school of library science. GRE verbal scores were the most valid predictors of success. (Author/PN)

Levine, Michael V.; Drasgow, Fritz – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1983
The relation between incorrect option choice and estimated ability level was examined for two widely used aptitude tests, the Scholastic Aptitude Test, and the Graduate Record Examination. Incorrect option choice was found to be related to estimated ability for many items. Implications of these findings are briefly discussed. (Author)

Chernyshenko, Oleksandr S.; Ones, Deniz S. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1999
Examined the selection ratio for 253 doctorate-level psychology programs. Used the selection ratio to estimate the existing range restriction on the Graduate Examination (GRE) (referred to as General Record Examination) scores in validation studies. Results show that the GRE is a valid predictor of graduate school performance. (SLD)

Nilsson, Johanna E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1995
Predictive relationships between the scores of the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) and graduate grade point average (GGPA) and the scores of the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) and GGPA were studied for 60 college students. The GRE had a stronger correlation to GGPA than the GMAT. (SLD)

Morrison, Todd; Morrison, Melanie – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1995
A meta-analytic review was conducted on published studies examining the relationship between performance on the quantitative and verbal components of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and graduate grade point average. Results suggest that the quantitative and verbal components of the GRE possess minimal predictive validity. (SLD)

Thornell, John G.; McCoy, Anthony – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1985
This study examines predictive validity of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) of academic success as measured by graduate grade point average (GGPA) of 582 students in selected academic disciplines. Results indicated considerable variability in validity coefficients for both different subgroups and subtests. (BS)
