|Title:||Coefficient Beta, Item Clustering and The Homogeneity of Summated Scales||Contributor(s):||Soutar, Geoffrey (author); Cooksey, Ray Wagner (author)||Publication Date:||2002||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/5451||Abstract:||Summated scales are widely used in management research to assess constructs of interest, such as job satisfaction, organisational culture and organisational commitment. The adequacy of summated scales can be evaluated using criteria such as reliability, validity and factorial homogeneity. We explore the utility of Revelle's (1979) coefficient beta as a criterion for judging the internal homogeneity of summated scales over and above the more typically applied coefficient alpha measure of internal consistency. The present paper applies coefficient beta, in the context of Revelle's (1978) ICLUST item clustering procedure, on responses to Warr's (1990) affective well-being scale from two distinct samples.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||16th ANZAM Conference, Beechworth, Australia, 4th - 7th December, 2003||Conference Details:||16th ANZAM Conference, Beechworth, Australia, 4th - 7th December, 2003||Source of Publication:||Enhancing Business & Government Capability: Proceedings of the 16th ANZAM Conference||Publisher:||LaTrobe University||Place of Publication:||Victoria, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||150313 Quality Management||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.anzam.org/home
