Jones, Bethan; Coakley, Ruth; Fenn, Lisa; Earle, Sarah; Davies, Dan – Primary Science, 2018
Making accurate, manageable assessments of children's scientific understanding, skills and progress is one of the biggest challenges facing primary teachers. In Wales, where Statutory Assessment Tests (SATs) at age 11 were phased out in 2005, teacher assessment has been the only source of pupil attainment data in science for a much longer period…

Mitchell, Alison; Baron, Lauren; Macaruso, Paul – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 2018
Screening and monitoring student reading progress can be costly and time consuming. Assessment embedded within the context of online instructional programs can capture ongoing student performance data while limiting testing time outside of instruction. This paper presents two studies that examined the validity of using performance measures from a…

Sessoms, John; Henson, Robert A. – Measurement: Interdisciplinary Research and Perspectives, 2018
Diagnostic classification models (DCMs) classify examinees based on the skills they have mastered given their test performance. This classification enables targeted feedback that can inform remedial instruction. Unfortunately, applications of DCMs have been criticized (e.g., no validity support). Generally, these evaluations have been brief and…

Kim, Seohyun; Lu, Zhenqiu; Cohen, Allan S. – Measurement: Interdisciplinary Research and Perspectives, 2018
Bayesian algorithms have been used successfully in the social and behavioral sciences to analyze dichotomous data particularly with complex structural equation models. In this study, we investigate the use of the Polya-Gamma data augmentation method with Gibbs sampling to improve estimation of structural equation models with dichotomous variables.…

Lehman, Blair A.; Zapata-Rivera, Diego – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2018
Students can experience a variety of emotions while completing assessments. Some emotions can get in the way of students performing their best (e.g., anxiety, frustration), whereas other emotions can facilitate student performance (e.g., engagement). Many new, non-traditional assessments, such as automated conversation-based assessments (CBA), are…
