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

Two samples from the southeastern United States (N=4225) and the southwestern United States (N=2994).

Reliability evidence

Internal consistency reliability (coefficient alpha) is estimated for all scales and is between 0.68 and 0.78 for all scales (Panorama, 2016).

Validity evidence
Evidence based on content
Items were reviewed by expert panels (Panorama, 2015; 2016).
Evidence based on response processes
Interviews and focus groups were used to refine and revise items (Panorama, 2015; 2016).
Evidence based on internal structure
Confirmatory Factor Analysis was used to support scale scores. Correlations among scores were invariant with respect to student demographics (gender and socio-economic status) (Panorama, 2015; 2016).
Evidence based on relations with other variables
Scale scores correlated in the anticipated direction with other measures of similar constructs, as well as with GPA, absences, behavioral referrals, and tardiness (Panorama, 2015; 2016).
