Koo, Jin; Becker, Betsy Jane; Kim, Young-Suk – Language Testing, 2014
In this study, differential item functioning (DIF) trends were examined for English language learners (ELLs) versus non-ELL students in third and tenth grades on a large-scale reading assessment. To facilitate the analyses, a meta-analytic DIF technique was employed. The results revealed that items requiring knowledge of words and phrases in…

Canto, Angela I.; Proctor, Briley E. – Journal of Research in Education, 2013
This study explored student-level predictors of reading achievement among third grade regular education students. Predictors included student demographics (sex and socioeconomic status (SES), using free and reduced lunch as proxy for SES), direct observations of reading skills (oral reading fluency (ORF) and word decoding skill (nonsense word…

Johnson, Evelyn S.; Jenkins, Joseph R.; Petscher, Yaacov – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2010
In a response-to-intervention framework, schools typically employ a direct route approach to screening, in which students identified as at risk by a screening process are directly placed into intervention. Direct route approaches require screening decisions to be highly accurate, but few studies examining the predictive validity of reading…
