Konstantopoulos, Spyros; Li, Wei; Miller, Shazia; van der Ploeg, Arie – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2019
This study discusses quantile regression methodology and its usefulness in education and social science research. First, quantile regression is defined and its advantages vis-à-vis vis ordinary least squares regression are illustrated. Second, specific comparisons are made between ordinary least squares and quantile regression methods. Third, the…

Briggs, Derek C.; Alzen, Jessica L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2019
Observation protocol scores are commonly used as status measures to support inferences about teacher practices. When multiple observations are collected for the same teacher over the course of a year, some portion of a teacher's score on each occasion may be attributable to the rater, lesson, and the time of year of the observation. All three of…

Hauser, Carl; Thum, Yeow Meng; He, Wei; Ma, Lingling – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2015
When conducting item reviews, analysts evaluate an array of statistical and graphical information to assess the fit of a field test (FT) item to an item response theory model. The process can be tedious, particularly when the number of human reviews (HR) to be completed is large. Furthermore, such a process leads to decisions that are susceptible…

Wyse, Adam E.; Bunch, Michael B.; Deville, Craig; Viger, Steven G. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2014
This article describes a novel variation of the Body of Work method that uses construct maps to overcome problems of transparency, rater inconsistency, and scores gaps commonly occurring with the Body of Work method. The Body of Work method with construct maps was implemented to set cut-scores for two separate K-12 assessment programs in a large…

Ye, Meng; Xin, Tao – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2014
The authors explored the effects of drifting common items on vertical scaling within the higher order framework of item parameter drift (IPD). The results showed that if IPD occurred between a pair of test levels, the scaling performance started to deviate from the ideal state, as indicated by bias of scaling. When there were two items drifting…

Timmermans, Anneke C.; Snijders, Tom A. B.; Bosker, Roel J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2013
In traditional studies on value-added indicators of educational effectiveness, students are usually treated as belonging to those schools where they took their final examination. However, in practice, students sometimes attend multiple schools and therefore it is questionable whether this assumption of belonging to the last school they attended…

Stone, Gregory Ethan; Koskey, Kristin L. K.; Sondergeld, Toni A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2011
Typical validation studies on standard setting models, most notably the Angoff and modified Angoff models, have ignored construct development, a critical aspect associated with all conceptualizations of measurement processes. Stone compared the Angoff and objective standard setting (OSS) models and found that Angoff failed to define a legitimate…

Schroeders, Ulrich; Wilhelm, Oliver – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2011
Whether an ability test delivered on either paper or computer provides the same information is an important question in applied psychometrics. Besides the validity, it is also the fairness of a measure that is at stake if the test medium affects performance. This study provides a comprehensive review of existing equivalence research in the field…

Furgol, Katherine E.; Ho, Andrew D.; Zimmerman, Dale L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
Under the No Child Left Behind Act, large-scale test score trend analyses are widespread. These analyses often gloss over interesting changes in test score distributions and involve unrealistic assumptions. Further complications arise from analyses of unanchored, censored assessment data, or proportions of students lying within performance levels…

Humphry, Stephen M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
Discrimination has traditionally been parameterized for items but not other empirical factors. Consequently, if person factors affect discrimination they cause misfit. However, by explicitly formulating the relationship between discrimination and the unit of a metric, it is possible to parameterize discrimination for person groups. This article…

Wang, Shudong; Jiao, Hong – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2009
In practice, vertical scales have been continually used to measure students' achievement progress across several grade levels and have been considered very challenging psychometric procedures. Recently, such practices have been drawing many criticisms. The major criticisms focus on dimensionality and construct equivalence of the latent trait or…

Martin, Andrew J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2009
From a developmental construct validity perspective, this study examines motivation and engagement across elementary school, high school, and university/college, with particular focus on the Motivation and Engagement Scale (comprising adaptive, impeding/maladaptive, and maladaptive factors). Findings demonstrated developmental construct validity…

Vasilyeva, Marina; Ludlow, Larry H.; Casey, Beth M.; Onge, Caroline St. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2009
This article introduces the Measurement Skills Assessment (MeSA), which was designed to evaluate the mastery of measurement in elementary school students. The primary objectives for the MeSA include covering a broad range of measurement concepts, distinguishing between major subtypes of measurement, and constructing a continuum of items varying in…

Wang, Shudong; Jiao, Hong; Young, Michael J.; Brooks, Thomas; Olson, John – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2008
In recent years, computer-based testing (CBT) has grown in popularity, is increasingly being implemented across the United States, and will likely become the primary mode for delivering tests in the future. Although CBT offers many advantages over traditional paper-and-pencil testing, assessment experts, researchers, practitioners, and users have…

Wolfe, Edward W.; Viger, Steven G.; Jarvinen, Denis W.; Linksman, Jay – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2007
As large-scale accountability testing becomes more refined, statewide standards are being created so that teachers and students can create learning and assessment targets that are aligned with statewide testing systems. An important hurdle in assisting teachers in their efforts to create standards-aligned classroom assessments is creating feelings…
