Chalmers, Kerry A.; Freeman, Emily E. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
Low working memory (WM) capacity has been linked to poor academic performance and problem behavior. Availability of easy-to-administer screening tests would facilitate early detection of WM deficits. This study investigated the psychometric properties of the Working Memory Power Test for Children (WMPT) in 170 Australian schoolchildren (8½-11…

Shukla, Kathan D.; Waasdorp, Tracy E.; Lindstrom Johnson, Sarah; Orozco Solis, Mercedes Gabriela; Nguyen, Amanda J.; Rodríguez, Cecilia Colunga; Bradshaw, Catherine P. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
School climate is an important construct for guiding violence prevention efforts in U.S. schools, but there has been less consideration of this concept in its neighboring country Mexico, which has a higher prevalence of violence. The U.S. Department of Education outlined a three-domain conceptualization of school climate (i.e., safe and supportive…

Loscalzo, Yura; Rice, Sean P. M.; Giannini, Marco; Rice, Kenneth G. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
This study analyzed the psychometric properties of the Italian translation of both the Short Almost Perfect Scale (SAPS) and the Short Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale (SMPS), and the academic implications of perfectionism on 414 Italian college students aged between 18 and 58 years. Results revealed some limitations with the SAPS factor…

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…

Li, Yaoran; Sheldon, Kennon M.; Rouder, Jeffrey N.; Bergin, David A.; Geary, David C. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
Self-referent performance beliefs can influence people's decision making related to long-term goals. Current measures of such beliefs, however, do not explicitly focus on the long-term aspects of goal achievement. We introduce a new concept, Long-Term Prospects (LTP), which is defined as the self-perception that one can maintain the continuous…

Alivernini, Fabio; Manganelli, Sara; Cavicchiolo, Elisa; Chirico, Andrea; Lucidi, Fabio – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
Cognitive self-regulation is regarded as necessary for enhancing academic success and the possibility of lifelong learning. This study, based on 263,683 Italian 10th-grade students, examines the use of self-regulated cognitive strategies in immigrant and native students, as well as in boys and girls. Preliminarily, we examined the psychometric…

Poliandri, Donatella; Sette, Stefania; Vinci, Emanuela; Romiti, Sara – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2018
The present study analyzed the factor validity of the Patterns of Adaptive Learning Scale (PALS) to assess students' perceptions of mathematics classroom goal structures. Participants were N = 7,773 Italian students aged from 11 to 15 years (M = 11.97, SD = 0.50). The confirmatory factor analysis replicated a three-factor structure (i.e., mastery,…

Datu, Jesus Alfonso D.; Yang, Weipeng – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2018
The current study examined the psychometric validity and gender invariance of the Academic Buoyancy Scale in the Philippines through a construct validation approach. In terms of within-network construct validity, our results demonstrated that the unidimensional model of academic buoyancy significantly fit the current sample and was invariant…

Li, Jingguang; Zhao, Yajun; Kong, Feng; Du, Shuailing; Yang, Suyong; Wang, Song – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2018
This study sought to validate the Short Grit Scale (Grit-S), an instrument that measures perseverance and passion for long-term goals, among Chinese high school students. Confirmatory factor analyses revealed that the scale retains the two-factor structure of the original scale. The scale demonstrated satisfactory internal consistency and…

Ning, Hoi Kwan – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2018
The 3 × 2 achievement goal framework comprising task-approach, task-avoidance, self-approach, self-avoidance, other-approach, and other-avoidance goals is the most recent conceptual development in goal orientation research. The purpose of this study was to extend the current literature by investigating the validity of the 3 × 2 Achievement Goal…

Renshaw, Tyler L.; Chenier, Jeffrey S. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2018
This report presents further validation evidence for the Student Subjective Wellbeing Questionnaire (SSWQ). Analyses conducted with a sample of urban middle-school students (Grades 5-8, N = 335) targeted two limitations from previous validation studies: the lack of convergent validity evidence linking responses to the SSWQ with actual school…

Alivernini, Fabio; Manganelli, Sara; Lucidi, Fabio – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2018
This study examines the factor structures of Personal and Classroom Achievement Goals and the relationships between them. Multilevel structural equation modeling was used to examine data from a sample of 3,544 Italian 10th-grade students (184 classrooms) who completed the Patterns of Adaptive Learning Scales (PALS). Findings about the factor…

Stankov, Lazar; Lee, Jihyun; von Davier, Matthias – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2018
We examine construct validity of the anchoring method used with 12 noncognitive scales from the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2012 project. This method combines individuals' responses to vignettes and self-rated scores based on Likert-type items. It has been reported that the use of anchoring vignettes can reverse…

Parkin, Jason R.; Beaujean, A. Alexander; Firmin, Michael W.; Qiu, Xiao; Firmin, Ruth L. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2018
In this study, we examined the factor structure, reliability, and external validity of scores from the Comprehensive Test of Nonverbal Intelligence-Second Edition (CTONI-2) using an independent sample of young adults currently enrolled in a postsecondary institution. Although the subtests appear to be measuring general intelligence, the aggregate…
