Reckase, Mark D.; Xu, Jing-Ru – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2015
How to compute and report subscores for a test that was originally designed for reporting scores on a unidimensional scale has been a topic of interest in recent years. In the research reported here, we describe an application of multidimensional item response theory to identify a subscore structure in a test designed for reporting results using a…

Paek, Insu; Park, Hyun-Jeong; Cai, Li; Chi, Eunlim – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2014
Typically a longitudinal growth modeling based on item response theory (IRT) requires repeated measures data from a single group with the same test design. If operational or item exposure problems are present, the same test may not be employed to collect data for longitudinal analyses and tests at multiple time points are constructed with unique…

Lee, Young-Sun; Grossman, Jennifer; Krishnan, Anita – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2008
This study examined the cultural relevance of adult attachment within a Korean sample (N = 390) using Rasch rating scale modeling. The psychometric properties of scores from the Korean version of the Revised Experiences in Close Relationships, comprised of two subscales of Anxiety (self) and Avoidance (other), were assessed. Results obtained from…

In this study, mixed Rasch modeling was used on the Self-Rating Depression Scale (SDS), a widely used measure of depression, among a non-Western sample of 618 Korean college students. The results revealed three latent classes and confirmed the unidimensionality of the SDS. In addition, there was a significant effect for gender in terms of class…

The authors examined the measurement equivalence of the Multidimensional Work Ethic Profile (MWEP) across the diverse cultures of Korea, Mexico, and the United States. Korean- and Spanish-language versions of the MWEP were developed and evaluated relative to the original English version of the measure. Confirmatory factor analytic results…

Hong, Sehee; Malik, Mary L.; Lee, Min-Kyu – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2003
Used latent means analysis in the framework of structural equation modeling to explore the factor structure and gender differences associated with the Personal Style Inventory (PSI; C. Robins and others, 1994) with 508 Korean undergraduates. Results support the cross-cultural stability of the PSI factor structure. Women had higher scores than men…

Hong, Sehee; Lee, Min-Kyu – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2001
Examined the factor structure of the revised Personal Style Inventory (C. Robins, J. Ladd, and A. Luten, 1990) through hierarchical factor analysis using data from 574 college students in Korea. Found a hierarchical model specifying perfectionism as associated with both hierarchical factors (Autonomy and Sociotropy) to be the best fitting. (SLD)

Kim, Junghee; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1995
For 92 male and 101 female Korean 11th graders, creativity as measured by the Torrance Tests of Creativity, showed little relationship to school performance. Females tended to be more creative than males, but, irrespective of gender, students with right-brain associated thinking and learning style earned high creativity scores. (SLD)
