A total of 240 (35 males and 195 females) undergraduate students completed a scale assessing competitiveness and cooperativeness. The results showed that cooperativeness and competitiveness are orthogonal characteristics, contrary to the popular notion that they fall on the ends of a single...
The purpose of this study was to examine the validity and reliability of a scale measuring attitudes toward foreign language. Results of principal components analysis with an orthogonal rotation identified five interpretable dimensions explaining 63.0% of the variance in the total factor...
The decision to accept a student into a graduate program is a difficult one, based upon many factors that are used to predict the success of the applicant. Typically, regression analysis has been used to develop a prediction mechanism. Unfortunately, as is shown in this article, these regression...
A Microsoft FORTRAN 77 program is presented that computes a global test and the subsequent multiple range procedure for testing differences among independent first-order partial correlations.
Home economists involved in research and intervention with families need measures with which to explore family functioning. The utility of such measures turns, of course, on the measurement integrity of the scores that given protocols yield. The present study was conducted to explore the...
This study was conducted to scale the Attitudes Toward Inclusive Education Scale (ATIES) with Rasch analysis. The ATIES records positive and negative attitudes toward integrating children with various disabilities into regular classes. Rasch analysis resolved the nonlinear relationship between...
The social status of a sample of fifth- and sixth-grade students was determined using the Coie, Dodge, and Coppotelli peer nomination method. Students were classified along three sociometric dimensions: 16 students were classified as Popular, 17 as Rejected, and 62 as Average out of an initial...
The Pearson-Bravais correlation coefficient is the most widely used intervariable association index with multivariate analysis of underlying structure. However, it is a suboptimal coefficient when assumptions of multivariate normality are violated because of its tendency to become attenuated. A...
A meta-analytic review was conducted on published studies examining the relationship between performance on the quantitative and verbal components of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE-Q and GRE-V, respectively) and graduate grade point average (GGPA). The weighted average effect sizes (d) for...
