ETS Research Spotlight: Issue 2
Johnson, Jeff, Ed.
Educational Testing Service
In four articles adapted from the Educational Testing Service (ETS) Research Report Series, Issue 2 of ETS Research Spotlight provides a small taste of the range of assessment-related research capabilities of the ETS Research and Development Division. Those articles cover assessment-related research aimed at developing models of student learning, applying standard-setting methodology, advancing equating methodology, and assessing information literacy. In the last section of this issue, the abstracts from all 2008 contributions to the ETS Research Report Series are included. This issue contains: (1) A Developmental Writing Scale (Yigal Attali and Donald Powers); (2) Using Standard-Setting Methodology for Linking Assessment Scores to Proficiency Scales: TOEFL[R] iBT and TOEIC[R] Assessment Exemplars (Richard J. Tannenbaum and E. Caroline Wylie); (3) Equating of Mixed-Format Tests in Large-Scale Assessments (Sooyeon Kim, Michael E. Walker, and Frederick McHale); and (4) Multiple Methods of Assessing Information Literacy: A Case Study (Irvin R. Katz, Norbert Elliot, Yigal Attali, Davida Scharf, Donald Powers, Heather Huey, Kamal Joshi, and Vladimir Briller). Each article contains tables, figures and references. (Contains 1 footnote.)
