Subjective Graphing of Metacognitive, Affective, and Social Processing: A Psychometric Analysis


The Present Experiment Examined a Subjective Graphing Measure Designed to Assess Students' Ongoing Processing While Studying. It is Proposed that This Measure, Which Has Served in a Number of Diverse Investigations, Offers Theoretical and Pragmatic Advantages over Existing Measures. the Internal Structure, Reliability, and Validity of This Assessment Tool Were Tested within the Context of Scripted Cooperative Learning. Results Indicated that the Measure Could Be Described Adequately by Three Relatively Independent, Replicable Factors. in Addition, These Factors Were Consistent with a Priori Expectations based on Dansereau's (1986) Model of Learning Task Performance. Subjective Graphing Was Found to Be Reliable in Terms of Both Internal and Test-Retest Analyses. Further, the Validity Analyses Indicated that Subjective Graphing is Sensitive to Both Performance and Situational Manipulations as Long as Students Are Given Ample Opportunity to Become Acquainted with the Measure. © 1989 Helen Dwight Reid Educational Foundation.
