Evidence of Technical Quality
Populations for which technical quality evidence has been collected

Evidence was collected from ninth and tenth graders enrolled in an urban high school (N=142) (Cleary, 2006).

Reliability evidence

The internal consistency (alpha) of the overall score was 0.92. Subscale reliabilities ranged from 0.72 to 0.88 (Cleary, 2006).

Validity evidence
Evidence based on content
Items were developed from general categories of self-regulated learning strategies (Zimerman & Martinez-Pons, 1988). Teachers and self-regulation experts and students reviewed item content for comprehensiveness of coverage (Cleary, 2006).
Evidence based on response processes
No information is available in the references reviewed.
Evidence based on internal structure
Principal component analyses provided evidence supporting three factors and a general higher order factor (Cleary, 2006).
Evidence based on relations with other variables
SRSI-SR scores could be used to differentiate between high-achieving and lower-achieving students (scale averages were systematically and significantly higher for high-achieving students) (Cleary, 2006).
