Wendt, Heike; Kasper, Daniel; Trendtel, Matthias – Large-scale Assessments in Education, 2017
Background: Large-scale cross-national studies designed to measure student achievement use different social, cultural, economic and other background variables to explain observed differences in that achievement. Prior to their inclusion into a prediction model, these variables are commonly scaled into latent background indices. To allow…
