Academic Medicine: Volume 96 - Issue 6 - p 876-884(9)

 

This study examines whether there are group differences in milestone ratings submitted by program directors working with clinical competency committees based on gender for internal medicine residents and whether women and men rated similarly on subsequent in-training and certification examinations.

Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice

 

This article aims to answer the question: when the assumption that examinees may apply themselves fully yet still respond incorrectly is violated, what are the consequences of using the modified model proposed by Lewis and his colleagues?

Advances in Health Sciences Education: Volume 25, p 1057–1086 (2020)

 

This critical review explores: (1) published applications of data science and ML in HPE literature and (2) the potential role of data science and ML in shifting theoretical and epistemological perspectives in HPE research and practice.

Integrating Timing Considerations to Improve Testing Practices

 

This chapter addresses a different aspect of the use of timing data: it provides a framework for understanding how an examinee's use of time interfaces with time limits to impact both test performance and the validity of inferences made based on test scores. It focuses primarily on examinations that are administered as part of the physician licensure process.

Integrating Timing Considerations to Improve Testing Practices

 

This book synthesizes a wealth of theory and research on time issues in assessment into actionable advice for test development, administration, and scoring.

Integrating Timing Considerations to Improve Testing Practices

 

This chapter addresses timing considerations in the context of other types of performance assessments and reports on a previously unpublished experiment examining timing with respect to performance on computer-based case simulations that are used in physician licensure.

Integrating Timing Considerations to Improve Testing Practices

 

This chapter presents a historical overview of the testing literature that exemplifies the theoretical and operational evolution of test speededness.

Using Monte Carlo simulation, the current study examines the performance of three IV estimators and two conventional estimators in recovering the CATE and CATE heterogeneity under simulation conditions that resemble multisite trials of well-known educational programs.

Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 39: 30-36

 

This article proposes the conscious weight method and subconscious weight method to bring more objectivity to the standard setting process. To do this, these methods quantify the relative harm of the negative consequences of false positive and false negative misclassification.

Springer International Publishing; 2019

 

This handbook provides an overview of major developments around diagnostic classification models (DCMs) with regard to modeling, estimation, model checking, scoring, and applications. It brings together not only the current state of the art, but also the theoretical background and models developed for diagnostic classification.
