Leung, K. C. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
Current research has shown that there is a separation of the competence and affect components of academic self-concept on the Self-Description Questionnaire (SDQ) II in Western culture. However, no studies have investigated the competence-affect separation for the Math and Verbal scales of the SDQ II in Chinese samples. The present study examines…

Dombrowski, Stefan C.; Beaujean, A. Alexander; McGill, Ryan J.; Benson, Nicholas F. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
The Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Achievement, Fourth Edition (WJ IV ACH) is purported to align with Cattell-Horn-Carroll (CHC) theory and offers upward of 20 scores within its interpretive and scoring system. The Technical Manual does not furnish validity evidence for the scores reported by the scoring system, suggesting that evidentiary support may…

Rajlic, Gordana; Kwon, Jae Yung; Roded, Keren; Hubley, Anita M. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
In the current study, we present the development of the Global Self-Esteem (GSE) measure. The six-item GSE fulfills a need for a short unidimensional measure of global self-esteem conceptualized as "overall positive view of self." The construct is traditionally measured by the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSE); however, several important…

Results revealed some limitations with the SAPS factor…

This study investigated the effect of item position on descriptive statistics, psychometric information, and factor structure of the Pediatric Symptoms Checklist 17-item social-emotional screening instrument (PSC-17). The goal was to determine whether item position, either grouped by factor or mixed across constructs, produced similar results.…

Parkin, Jason R. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
Theories of reading and writing development suggest that the factor structure of achievement batteries could change across development. As a result, it is important to test achievement batteries for invariance across development. The purpose of these analyses is to determine whether the factor structure of reading, writing, and oral language…

Nitkowski, Dennis; Fern, Julia; Petermann, Ulrike; Petermann, Franz; Zeman, Janice L. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
In Germany, there are no self-report questionnaires assessing emotion awareness in youth under the age of 16 years or simultaneously with emotion suppression. The "Emotion Expression Scale for Children" (EESC) measuring lack of emotion awareness and reluctance to express emotions in 10- to 15-year-olds can fill this gap. Goal of this…

Immekus, Jason C.; Ingle, W. Kyle – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
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…

Mameli, Consuelo; Passini, Stefano – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2019
The elusive character of student agency makes it a relevant construct to be investigated and measured. An initial effort in this direction was represented by the Agentic Engagement Scale, a five-item instrument designed to assess the degree to which students constructively contribute to the flow of the instructions they receive from the teacher.…

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…

This brief report presents preliminary psychometrics of responses to the Youth Externalizing Problems Screener (YEPS), which is a 10-item self-report rating scale intended for use as a screening instrument. The YEPS was designed to function as a companion measure to the Youth Internalizing Problems Screener (YIPS), facilitating the screening of…

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…
