Lee, Yi-Hsuan; Haberman, Shelby J.
International Journal of Testing, v16 n3 p240-267 2016
The use of computer-based assessments makes the collection of detailed data that capture examinees' progress in the tests and time spent on individual actions possible. This article presents a study using process and timing data to aid understanding of an international language assessment and the examinees. Issues regarding test-taking strategies, test speededness, test design, and their relationship to examinees' demographic backgrounds and performance are also discussed.
