Reliability of the Murphy-Meisgeier Type Indicator for Children (MMTIC) and the Student Styles Questionnaire (SSQ)
MetadataShow full item record
Research suggests that psychological type affects one's status in social groups. This, in turn, may impact performance in the classroom when students are required to participate in cooperative learning. At the same time, research on the psychometric properties of instruments used to measure psychological type in children and adolescents is almost non-existent. In order to decrease this gap between theory and practice, a systematic literature review was conducted for studies that used the Murphy-Meisgeier Type Indicator for Children (MMTIC) or the Student Styles Questionnaire (SSQ) to measure psychological type in children and adolescents. Reliability estimates were extracted and compared in order to determine which instrument provided adequate reliability. Results clearly indicated that the revised MMTIC (2008) yielded the strongest internal consistency and test-retest reliability estimates, although differences in reliability existed between scales.
