Egberink, Iris J. L.; Meijer, Rob R.; Tendeiro, Jorge N. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2015
A popular method to assess measurement invariance of a particular item is based on likelihood ratio tests with all other items as anchor items. The results of this method are often only reported in terms of statistical significance, and researchers proposed different methods to empirically select anchor items. It is unclear, however, how many…

Hoekstra, Rink; Johnson, Addie; Kiers, Henk A. L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2012
The use of confidence intervals (CIs) as an addition or as an alternative to null hypothesis significance testing (NHST) has been promoted as a means to make researchers more aware of the uncertainty that is inherent in statistical inference. Little is known, however, about whether presenting results via CIs affects how readers judge the…

Crombach, Marjo J.; Boekaerts, Monique; Voeten, Marinus J. M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2003
Studied the factor structure of the On-Line Motivation Questionnaire (M. Boekaerts, 2002) in a sample of 780 Dutch seventh graders. Confirmatory factor analysis revealed that seven of eight presupposed factors could be distinguished empirically. The internal structure appeared invariant over the academic tasks studied. (SLD)

Eggen, T. J. H. M.; Straetmans, G. J. J. M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2000
Studied the use of adaptive testing when examinees are classified into three categories. Established testing algorithms with two different statistical computation procedures and evaluated them through simulation using an operative item bank from Dutch basic adult education. Results suggest a reduction of at least 22% in the mean number of items…

Van der Ven, Ad H. G. S. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1992
The dichotomous Rasch model was applied to verbal subtest scores on the Intelligence Structure Test Battery for 905 12- to 15-year-old secondary school students in the Netherlands. Results suggest that, if any factor is used to increase difficulty of items, that factor should be used on all items. (SLD)

Hoogstraten, Joh; Christiaans, H. H. C. M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1975
The relationship of the 1964 forms of the Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal to four selected noncognitive measures was studied. Results suggest performance on the Watson-Glaser Critical Thinking Appraisal is independent of sex, neurotic and rigid personality characteristics, and extroversion-introversion factors. (BJG)
