Nilsen, Trude; Blömeke, Sigrid; Hansen, Kajsa Yang; Gustafsson, Jan-Eric – International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, 2016
In most countries, students' socioeconomic status (SES) is strongly related to their educational achievement: the higher a student's SES, the higher his or her achievement scores, and vice versa. This lack of equity in student outcomes is of great concern to policy makers because educational achievement should not depend on family background. This…

Lay, Yoon Fah; Chandrasegaran, A. L. – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2016
Studies have shown that resources are crucial for improving schooling, perhaps even more so in developing countries than in economically developed countries, where adequate school structures and material resources may be taken for granted. Recent research reviews suggest that computer use continues to grow in mathematics and science instruction,…

Öztürk-Gübes, Nese; Kelecioglu, Hülya – Educational Sciences: Theory and Practice, 2016
The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of dimensionality, common-item set format, and different scale linking methods on preserving equity property with mixed-format test equating. Item response theory (IRT) true-score equating (TSE) and IRT observed-score equating (OSE) methods were used under common-item nonequivalent groups design.…

Carnoy, Martin; Khavenson, Tatiana; Loyalka, Prashant; Schmidt, William H.; Zakharov, Andrey – American Educational Research Journal, 2016
International assessments, such as the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), are being used to recommend educational policies to improve student achievement. This study shows that the cross-sectional estimates behind such recommendations may be biased. We use a unique data set from one country that applied the PISA mathematics test…

Lein, Amy E.; Jitendra, Asha K.; Starosta, Kristin M.; Dupuis, Danielle N.; Hughes-Reid, Cheyenne L.; Star, John R. – Grantee Submission, 2016
In this study, the authors assessed the contribution of engagement (on-task behavior) to the mathematics problem-solving performance of seventh-grade students after accounting for prior mathematics achievement. A subsample of seventh-grade students in four mathematics classrooms (one high-, two average-, and one low-achieving) from a larger…

Stephens, Maria; Neidorf, Teresa A.; Lasseter, Austin; Zhang, Jizhi – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2016
This paper describes the extent to which the science content in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) is similar to that in the science assessment frameworks for the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) and the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) at the middle school level. Using NAEP as a common…
