Abstract

Reviews evidence concerning the validity, reliability, and scaling adequacy of 4 versions of the Ohio State leadership scales. A number of shortcomings are noted, due either to the lack of relevant data (e.g., with respect to construct validity) or actual inadequacies of the scales (e.g., item response skewedness). The 4 versions are shown to be substantially different psychometrically; although suffering from some deficiencies and requiring further refinement, one version of the scales appears sounder than the others.
