Konold, Timothy – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2018
School-level contextual factors have been found to influence reports of school climate. The purpose of the current study was to evaluate the extent to which these associations are related to the school climate traits being measured or the methods (i.e., informants) used to obtain them. Data from a multilevel multitrait-multimethod (MTMM) design in…

Kaufman, A. S.; Salthouse, T. A.; Scheiber, C.; Chen, H. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2016
Patterns of maintenance of ability across the life span have been documented on tests of knowledge ("Gc"), as have patterns of steady decline on measures of reasoning ("Gf/Gv"), working memory ("Gsm"), and speed ("Gs"). Whether these patterns occur at the same rate for adults from different educational…

Huang, Francis L.; Cornell, Dewey G. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2016
Although school climate has long been recognized as an important factor in the school improvement process, there are few psychometrically supported measures based on teacher perspectives. The current study replicated and extended the factor structure, concurrent validity, and test-retest reliability of the teacher version of the Authoritative…

Dawson, Anne E.; Wymbs, Brian T. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2016
Preliminary findings indicate that positive relations between parents and teachers are associated with successful school outcomes for children. However, measures available to assess parent-teacher relations are scant. The current study examined validity evidence for the Parent-Teacher Relationship Scale-I (PTRS). Specifically, the internal…

Huang, Francis L.; Cornell, Dewey G. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2016
Advances in multilevel modeling techniques now make it possible to investigate the psychometric properties of instruments using clustered data. Factor models that overlook the clustering effect can lead to underestimated standard errors, incorrect parameter estimates, and model fit indices. In addition, factor structures may differ depending on…

Huang, Francis L. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2014
The factor structure of the Phonological Awareness Literacy Screening for Grades 1 through 3 (PALS 1-3), a widely used early literacy screener in the Commonwealth of Virginia, was investigated using a large sample of public-school second-grade students (n = 14,993). Three alternative factor models (i.e., a one-factor, two-correlated factors, and a…

Kim, Sangwon; Orpinas, Pamela; Martin, Roy; Horne, Arthur M.; Sullivan, Terri N.; Hall, Daniel B. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2010
This study examined a typology of adaptive and maladaptive behaviors of 2,552 ethnically diverse early adolescents who attended sixth grade in public schools and lived in disadvantaged communities. Behavioral adjustment of adolescents was measured by teacher ratings using the Behavior Assessment System for Children (BASC). Although typologies of…

Hagan, Leigh D.; Drogin, Eric Y.; Guilmette, Thomas J. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2010
"Atkins v. Virginia" (2002) dramatically raised the stakes for mental retardation in capital punishment cases, but neither defined this condition nor imposed uniform standards for its assessment. The basic premise that mean IQ scores shift over time enjoys wide recognition, but its application--including the appropriateness of…

Townsend, Monika; Konold, Timothy R. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2010
Psychometric properties of the Phonological Awareness Literacy Screening for Preschool (PALS-PreK) instrument were investigated in a sample of 4,518 children. PALS-PreK figures prominently in state and federal early literacy programs as an assessment of emergent literacy skills in preschool-aged children. Exploratory Factor Analysis, Confirmatory…
