The "International Journal of Testing": A Content Review
Zenisky, April L.; Crotts, Katrina M.
International Journal of Testing, v10 n1 p1-5 2010
The "International Journal of Testing" (IJT) is the journal of the International Test Commission. It is intended to support the dissemination of scholarly research on tests and test use worldwide. The purpose of this article is to reflect on what has been published in IJT over its nine volumes to date, with a focus on the extent to which the journal involves contributions from around the globe as well as the topics and issues being studied. Across the 160 scholarly articles published in IJT there are 303 unique authors, and manuscripts range in subject matter from instrument-specific validation studies to analyses of DIF and other important measurement issues. Significantly, IJT does reflect a high degree of international diversity among the authors who have been published in its pages, as it generally exhibits a higher proportion of non-North American authors as compared to other prominent measurement journals since 2001. This diversity in authorship and in content that is present in IJT speaks to the extent to which the journal is a key resource for testing and assessment professionals internationally, and the importance of supporting this mission in the future.
