Theory of mental tests by Harold Gulliksen( Book )

49 editions published between 1950 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 935 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The material in this book is based on my several years' experience in construction and evaluation of examinations, first as a member of the Board of Examinations of the University of Chicago, later as director of a war research project developing aptitude and achievement tests for the Bureau of Naval Personnel, and at present as research adviser for the Educational Testing Service. During this time I have become aware of the necessity for a firm grounding in test theory for work in test development. When this book was begun the material on test theory was available in numerous articles scattered through the literature and in books written some time ago, and therefore not presenting recent developments. It seemed desirable to me to bring the technical developments in test theory of the last fifty years together in one readily available source. Although this book is written primarily for those working in test development, it is interesting to note that the techniques presented here are applicable in many fields other than test construction. Many of the difficulties that have been encountered and solved in the testing field also confront workers in other areas, such as measurement of attitudes or opinions, appraisal of personality, and clinical diagnosis. The major part of this book is designed for readers with the following preparation: (1) A knowledge of elementary algebra, including such topics as the binomial expansion, the solution of simultaneous linear equations, and the use of tables of logarithms; (2) Some familiarity with analytical geometry, emphasizing primarily the equation of the straight line, although some use is made of the equations for the circle, ellipse, hyperbola, and parabola; and (3) A knowledge of elementary statistics, including such topics as the computation and interpretation of means, standard deviations, correlations, errors of estimate, and the constants of the equation of the regression line. It is assumed that the students know how to make and to interpret frequency diagrams of various sorts, including the histogram, frequency polygon, normal curve, cumulative frequency curve, and the correlation scatter diagram. Familiarity with tables of the normal curve and with significance tests is also assumed. In textbook fashion, each chapter concludes with problems and exercises"--Preface.

Attitudes of different groups toward work, aims, goals and activities, by Harold Gulliksen and Dorothy P. Gulliksen by Harold Gulliksen( Book )

13 editions published between 1971 and 1973 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An investigation of work, aims, goals and activities using eight questionnaires demonstrated the usefulness of three questionnaire types: complete paired comparisons, multiple rank order, and successive intervals with twelve categories of choice. There were 3500 subjects from ten groups including students, military groups, lumbermen, manufacturing workers, and supervisors. Scale values were obtained, and analysis of variance on votes for items or on category choices. Factor analysis of covariances and varimax rotation with means added proved to be a valuable technique for showing the structure of group attitudes. Results: consistency of response was indicated by relatively few total circular triads (TCTs) over p = .025. Females showed significantly fewer TCTs than males at the F(.95) level. Positive rewards in work were: creativity, self direction, change and variety, learning and advancement, recognition, pay and security. The quality of personal and family life took precedence over an interesting job. Other interests outside of work were still lower in scale values. (Author)

Functional learning : the learning of continuous functional mappings relating stimulus and response continua by J. Douglas Carroll( Book )

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A general model was proposed in which it was assumed that, in learning situations involving scaled stimuli and responses, subjects will tend to establish continuous functional relations between stimuli and responses. In particular, it was assumed that each subject has available a general functional form dependent only on certain parameters (p sub i) and that in learning the subject effectively assigns specific values to these parameters, thus establishing a specific function defining a unique mapping of stimuli into responses.

A developmental study of the semantic differential by Roy S Lilly( Book )

1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The large literature on Osgood's Semantic Differential (S) (Osgood, C.E., G.J. Suci and P.H. Tannenbauna. 'The measurement of meaning.' Urbana, Univ. Illinois press, 1957) suggests that for adults there are three major dimensions in the domain of effective meaning--evaluation, potency, and activity. The main purpose of the present study was to explore the changes in the dimensions of affective meaning as a function of age. A second purpose was to obtain test-retest reliabilities of the SD for children. The typical SD study involves having subjects rate a number of concepts (e.g., Mother) on a series of bipolar adjective scales (e.g., good-bad). In the present study, the same 20 concepts (and two repeats) were rated on the same 28, 11-point adjective scales by 96, 110, 107, and 100 parochial school children in grades three, four, six, and in high school. Both the adjectives and concepts were high frequency words. It was concluded that the primary dimensions of affective meaning for children as yound as grade three children were very similar to those for adults

An attempt to obtain replicate learning curves by Harold Gulliksen( Book )

3 editions published in 1973 in English and Undetermined and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Investigators of split brain learning have reported that the two halves function in a nearly identical manner, giving excellent controlled replication of a learning problem. Such a situation furnishes an excellent opportunity for studying and learning curves and the parameters of learning curves to differentiate random error from a systematic discrepancy between learning data and learning theory. Experiments were carried out with cats trained in a tactile discrimination apparatus, sometimes being forced to use the left paw, and sometimes the right paw. Various tactile discriminations were required, one pedal being reinforced by food and the other sounded a buzzer. The data were analyzed in terms of parameters of a particular learning model and also in terms of the conventional measures of total trials, total correct responses and total errors to criterion.
