Answer to Question #90531 in Psychology for M

Question #90531
Researchers developed a new measure of resilience. They administered it twice to a
sample of 700 primary school students from some of Adelaide’s lower socio-economic
suburbs. The first time (T1) was when the students were in grade 3; the second time
(T2) was when they were in grade 11. They found that at T1 the new measure
correlated positively with a measure of dispositional perseverance, negatively with a
measure of learned helplessness, and was not at all related to a measure of aesthetic
values. They also found that student’s scores on the new measure correlated at .80
between T1 and T2. Finally, they found that the vast majority of participants who
scored high on the new measure of resilience tended to give up when they got a bad
mark at school. We would therefore conclude that the new measure…
a. has good construct validity; poor predictive validity; good test-retest reliability.
b. has poor construct validity; poor predictive validity; good test-retest reliability.
