Conoyer, Sarah J.; Ford, Jeremy W.; Smith, R. Alex; Mason, Erica N.; Lembke, Erica S.; Hosp, John L. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
This replication study examined the alternate form reliability, criterion validity, and predictive utility of two curriculum-based measurement (CBM) tools in science, Vocabulary-Matching (VM) and Statement Verification for Science (SV-S), for the purpose of screening. In all, 205 seventh-grade students from four middle schools were given alternate…

Factor analytic procedures were used to gather validity evidence on the internal structure of Skinner, Kinderman, and Furrer's Engagement versus "Disaffection with Learning" measure to operationalize students' classroom engagement. Independent samples of middle school students (Sample 1 = 618, Sample 2 = 493) were used to test the…

Huang, Francis L.; Reinke, Wendy M.; Thompson, Aaron; Herman, Keith C. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
An identified barrier to the widespread adoption of universal socioemotional and behavioral screening in schools may be that existing instruments may be too burdensome or costly to administer. As a result, the County Schools Mental Health Coalition came together to develop a common assessment system, the Early Identification System (EIS). The…

The aim of the study is to adapt the School Kindness Scale (SKS) to Turkish, and to examine its psychometric properties. For this purpose, two separate samples were used. Totally, 611 middle school students (302 boys, corresponding to 49.43% and 309 girls, corresponding to 50.57%) participated in the Study 1, and 759 middle school students (369…

This brief report presents an analog test of the relative classification validity of three cutoff values (CVs; 16, 18, and 20) derived from responses to the self-report version of the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire: Total Difficulties Scale. Results from Bayesian t-tests, using several school-specific subjective well-being indicators as…

Tyler, Jeremy M.; Panichelli-Mindel, Susan M.; Sperrazza, Cristina; Levitt, Melanie F. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
The purpose of this study was to identify whether maladaptive perfectionism predicts elevated symptoms of anxiety in a sample of primarily Puerto Rican middle school students. Participants included students (N = 128) from Grades 6 through 8 (48% male; average age = 11.9 years) who attended an urban, bilingual, public, charter school. Results…

Ng, Zi Jia; Huebner, E. Scott; Maydeu-Olivares, Alberto; Hills, Kimberly J. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
While adolescence is a critical stage of development marked by heightened bottom-up emotional reactivity and immature top-down regulatory control, research on emotion regulation has relatively neglected middle childhood to adolescence years. This may be attributed to the limited number and scope of age-appropriate, reliable, and valid measures of…

Pan, Jingtong; Zaff, Jonathan F. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
In this research, we examined the construct of a school engagement scale using exploratory structural equation modeling (ESEM). This study involved a translated measurement model that was originally developed by Li and Lerner for U.S. youth, and data from a sample of eighth-, ninth-, and 11th-grade Chinese adolescents (N = 364). First, the results…

Gonçalves, Teresa; Lemos, Marina S.; Canário, Catarina – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
Little research has, to date, explored students' coping in the academic domain. Yet, children and adolescents frequently refer daily academic difficulties as a common source of stress. The ways children respond to academic demands have the potential to make a difference in their learning and achievement. Therefore, the availability of a measure of…

Yang, Fuyi; Xu, Jianzhong – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2018
This study validated the Homework Expectancy Value Scale (HEVS) based on 918 middle school students from China. The factor analytic results showed that the HEVS consisted of two distinct yet related subscales: Expectancy and Value. Results further revealed that latent factor means for the HEVS were invariant across gender. Finally, consistent with…

The present study reports on an investigation of the generalizability of the technical adequacy of the Positive Experience at School Scale (PEASS) with a sample of students (N = 1,002) who differed substantially in age/grade level (i.e., adolescents in middle school as opposed to children in elementary school) and ethnic identity (i.e., majority…
