Summary

The purpose of the investigation was to determine the construct validity of a standardized achievement test. The test, administered to over 5800 subjects, is one examination in a diploma program for students pursuing the Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU) designation. Results of factor and multiple discriminant analysis indicated the presence of five content and cognitive constructs. However, only 12% of the variance was accounted for by these constructs. Subsequent analysis has indicated the presence of an item response format construct that might relate with individual performance. (Author/DJ)
