A Proposed Framework for Conducting Data-Based Test Analysis
Slaney, Kathleen L.; Maraun, Michael D.
Psychological Methods, v13 n4 p376-390 Dec 2008
The authors argue that the current state of applied data-based test analytic practice is unstructured and unmethodical due in large part to the fact that there is no clearly specified, widely accepted test analytic framework for judging the performances of particular tests in particular contexts. Drawing from the extant test theory literature, they propose a rationale that may be used in data-based test analysis. The components of the proposed test analytic framework are outlined in detail, as are examples of the framework as applied to commonly encountered test evaluative scenarios. A number of potential extensions of the framework are discussed. (Contains 12 footnotes and 1 table.)
