Stone, Clement A.; Yeh, Chien-Chi – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2006
Examination of a test's internal structure can be used to identify what domains or dimensions are being measured, identify relationships between the dimensions, provide evidence for hypothesized multidimensionality and test score interpretations, and identify construct-irrelevant variance. The purpose of this research is to provide a…

Hurtz, Gregory M.; Auerbach, Meredith A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2003
Conducted a meta analysis of studies of procedural modifications of the Angoff method of setting cutoff scores. Findings for 38 studies (113 judges) show that common modifications have produced systematic effects on cutoff scores and the degree of consensus among judges. (SLD)

Cooper-Hakim, Amy; Viswesvaran, Chockalingam – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2002
Using meta analysis, examined the predictive validity of scores on the MacAndrew Alcoholism Scale (C. MacAndrew, 1965). Compared results for 161 studies with results for 63 studies using cut scores. Discusses why the use of continuous measures rather than cut scores is recommended. (SLD)

Watkins, Marley W.; Greenawalt, Chris G.; Marcel, Catherine M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2002
Applied factor analysis to the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Third Edition (WISC-III) scores for 505 gifted students, to evaluate the construct validity of the WISC-III with this population. Results are consistent with the hypothesis that subtests that emphasize speed of reading are not valid for gifted children and suggest that an…

Vacha-Haase, Tammi; Kogan, Lori R.; Tani, Crystal R.; Woodall, Renee A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2001
Used reliability generalization to explore the variance of scores on 10 Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI) clinical scales drawing on 1,972 articles in the literature on the MMPI. Results highlight the premise that scores, not tests, are reliable or unreliable, and they show that study characteristics do influence scores on the…

Henson, Robin K.; Kogan, Lori R.; Vacha-Haase, Tammi – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2001
Studied sources of measurement error variance in the Teacher Efficacy Scale (TES) (Gibson and Dembo, 1984). Used reliability generalization to characterize the typical score reliability for the TES and potential sources of measurement error variance across 43 studies. Also examined related instruments for measurement integrity. (SLD)

Dwight, Stephen A.; Feigelson, Melissa E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2000
Conducted a meta-analysis to determine the extent to which the computer administration of a measure influences socially desirable responding. Discusses implications of the findings about impression management in terms of how they contribute to the explication of the construct of social desirability and cross-mode equivalence. (Author/SLD)

Schmidt, Amy Elizabeth – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2000
Conducted a validity study to examine the degree to which scores on the newly developed Diagnostic Readiness Test (DRT) and National League for Nursing Pre-Admission Test scores could predict success or failure on the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Results for 5,698 students indicate that the DRT is a…

Vispoel, Walter P. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2000
Compared results from computerized vocabulary tests under conditions in which item review was permitted or not permitted. Results from 177 college students reveal that performance gains after review were greater for examinees of high ability, and that review was desired more by examinees with higher test anxiety. The major drawback to review was…

Viswesvaran, Chockalingam; Ones, Deniz S. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2000
Used meta-analysis to cumulate reliabilities of personality scale scores, using 848 coefficients of stability and 1,359 internal consistency reliabilities across the Big Five factors of personality. The dimension of personality being measured does not appear to moderate strongly either internal consistency or the test-retest reliabilities.…

Konczak, Lee J.; Stelly, Damian J.; Trusty, Michael L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2000
Developed an instrument to measure empowering leader behavior (study 1, n=1,309) and studied the relationship of the instrument to several theoretically relevant variables (study 2, n=84). Confirmatory factor analyses support a six-dimension model of empowering leader behavior. Psychological empowerment mediated the relationship between six…

Ellis, Barbara B.; Mead, Alan D. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2000
Used the differential functioning of items and tests (DFIT) framework to examine the measurement equivalence of a Spanish translation of the Sixteen Personality Factor (16PF) Questionnaire using samples of 309 Anglo American college students and other adults, 280 English-speaking Hispanics, and 244 Spanish-speaking college students. Results show…

Morse, David T. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1998
The relative difficulty of seven test wiseness skills was studied with 243 undergraduates, who completed a measure of such skills. The use of specific determiners as a cue was significantly more challenging than eliminating irrelevant alternatives, selecting the alternative with the most information, or using grammar cues. (SLD)

Smith, Richard M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1996
The separate calibration t-test approach of B. Wright and M. Stone (1979) and the common calibration between-fit approach of B. Wright, R. Mead, and R. Draba (1976) appeared to have similar Type I error rates and similar power to detect item bias within a Rasch framework. (SLD)

Engelhard, George, Jr. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1992
A historical perspective is provided of the concept of invariance in measurement theory, describing sample-invariant item calibration and item-invariant measurement of individuals. Invariance as a key measurement concept is illustrated through the measurement theories of E. L. Thorndike, L. L. Thurstone, and G. Rasch. (SLD)
