Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice

 

This short, invited manuscript focuses on the implications for certification and licensure assessment organizations as a result of the wide‐spread disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

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addresses timing considerations in the context of other types of performance assessments and reports on a previously unpublished experiment examining timing with respect to performance on computer-based case simulations that are used in physician licensure.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

Journal of Educational Measurement: Volume 57, Issue 2, Pages 216-229

 

This article presents two generalizability-theory–based analyses of the proportion of the item variance that contributes to error in the cut score. For one approach, variance components are estimated on the probability (or proportion-correct) scale of the Angoff judgments, and for the other, the judgments are transferred to the theta scale of an item response theory model before estimating the variance components.

IEEE Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering

 

The purpose of this study is to test whether visual processing differences between adults with and without high-functioning autism captured through eye tracking can be used to detect autism.

UT Electronic Theses and Dissertations

 

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.

Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics: Vol 45, Issue 5, 2020

 

This article describes a method for identifying and reporting unexpectedly high or low subscores by comparing each examinee’s observed subscore with a discrete probability distribution of subscores conditional on the examinee’s overall ability.

Handbook of Automated Scoring

 

In this chapter we describe the historical background that led to development of the simulations and the subsequent refinement of the construct that occurred as the interface was being developed. We then describe the evolution of the automated scoring procedures from linear regression modeling to rule-based procedures.
