Wang, Wen-Chung; Chen, Hui-Fang; Jin, Kuan-Yu – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2015
Many scales contain both positively and negatively worded items. Reverse recoding of negatively worded items might not be enough for them to function as positively worded items do. In this study, we commented on the drawbacks of existing approaches to wording effect in mixed-format scales and used bi-factor item response theory (IRT) models to…

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…

Mylonas, Kostas; Furnham, Adrian; Divale, William; Leblebici, Cigdem; Gondim, Sonia; Moniz, Angela; Grad, Hector; Alvaro, Jose Luis; Cretu, Romeo Zeno; Filus, Ania; Boski, Pawel – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2014
Several sources of bias can plague research data and individual assessment. When cultural groups are considered, across or even within countries, it is essential that the constructs assessed and evaluated are as free as possible from any source of bias and specifically from bias caused due to culturally specific characteristics. Employing the…

Albano, Anthony D.; Rodriguez, Michael C. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2013
Although a substantial amount of research has been conducted on differential item functioning in testing, studies have focused on detecting differential item functioning rather than on explaining how or why it may occur. Some recent work has explored sources of differential functioning using explanatory and multilevel item response models. This…

Dumenci, Levent; Yates, Phillip D. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2012
Estimation problems associated with the correlated-trait correlated-method (CTCM) parameterization of a multitrait-multimethod (MTMM) matrix are widely documented: the model often fails to converge; even when convergence is achieved, one or more of the parameter estimates are outside the admissible parameter space. In this study, the authors…

Kulas, John T.; Thompson, Richard C.; Anderson, Michael G. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2011
The California Psychological Inventory's Dominance scale was investigated for inconsistencies in item-trait associations across four samples (one American normative and three culturally dissociated manager groupings). The Kim, Cohen, and Park procedure was used, enabling simultaneous multigroup comparison in addition to the traditional…

Bowden, Stephen C.; Saklofske, Donald H.; Weiss, Lawrence G. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2011
A measurement model describes both the numerical and theoretical relationship between observed scores and the corresponding latent variables or constructs. Testing a measurement model across groups is required to determine if the tests scores are tapping the same constructs so that the same meaning can be ascribed to the scores. Contemporary tests…

Immekus, Jason C.; Imbrie, P. K. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
The Revised Two-Factor Study Process Questionnaire (R-SPQ-2F) is a measure of university students' approach to learning. Original evaluation of the scale's psychometric properties was based on a sample of Hong Kong university students' scores. The purpose of this study was to test and cross-validate the R-SPQ-2F factor structure, based on separate…

Wilkins, Jesse L. M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
Quantitative literacy is a habit of mind that is characterized by the interrelationship among a person's everyday understanding of mathematics, his or her beliefs about mathematics, and his or her disposition toward mathematics. To assess quantitative literacy, it is important to devise measurement tools that provide valid and reliable information…

Ng, Kok-Mun; Wang, Chuang; Kim, Do-Hong; Bodenhorn, Nancy – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
The authors investigated the factor structure of the Schutte Self-Report Emotional Intelligence (SSREI) scale on international students. Via confirmatory factor analysis, the authors tested the fit of the models reported by Schutte et al. and five other studies to data from 640 international students in the United States. Results show that…

Bowden, Stephen C.; Lange, Rael T.; Weiss, Lawrence G.; Saklofske, Donald H. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2008
A measurement model is invoked whenever a psychological interpretation is placed on test scores. When stated in detail, a measurement model provides a description of the numerical and theoretical relationship between observed scores and the corresponding latent variables or constructs. In this way, the hypothesis that similar meaning can be…

Talento-Miller, Eileen; Rudner, Lawrence M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2008
The validity of Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) scores is examined by summarizing 273 studies conducted between 1997 and 2004. Each of the studies was conducted through the Validity Study Service of the test sponsor and contained identical variables and statistical methods. Validity coefficients from each of the studies were corrected…

Lievens, Filip; Anseel, Frederik; Harris, Michael M.; Eisenberg, Jacob – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2007
In recent years, pay satisfaction has been increasingly studied in an international context, prompting the importance of examining whether the Pay Satisfaction Questionnaire (PSQ) is invariant across countries other than the United States. This study investigated the measurement invariance across three countries, namely, the United States (N =…

Beckert, Troy E.; Strom, Robert D.; Strom, Paris S.; Yang, Cheng-Ta; Singh, Archana – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2007
This study examined whether the original factor structure of the Parent Success Indicator (PSI) could be replicated with scores from generational views on both the English- and Mandarin-language versions of the instrument. The 60-item PSI was evaluated using responses from 840 Taiwanese parents (n = 429) and their 10- to 14-year-old adolescents (n…

Woehr, David J.; Arciniega, Luis M.; Lim, Doo H. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2007
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…
