Identifying Low-Effort Examinees on Student Learning Outcomes Assessment: A Comparison of Two Approaches
Rios, Joseph A.; Liu, Ou Lydia; Bridgeman, Brent
New Directions for Institutional Research, n161 p69-82 2014
This chapter describes a study that compares two approaches (self-reported effort [SRE] and response time effort [RTE]) for identifying low-effort examinees in student learning outcomes assessment. Although both approaches equally discriminated from measures of ability (e.g., SAT scores), RTE was found to have a stronger relationship with test performance, identified more low-effort examinees, and led to higher mean performance upon filtering than the SRE approach.
