Hancock, Gregory R.; An, Ji – Measurement: Interdisciplinary Research and Perspectives, 2020
As an alternative to Cronbach's [alpha] for estimating scale reliability, McDonald's [omega] has attracted increased attention within the methodological community for its less stringent measurement assumptions. Notwithstanding, [omega] is still seldom used by practitioners, likely due to its unavailability in popular software packages (e.g., SPSS)…

Kleinert, Harold L. – Research and Practice for Persons with Severe Disabilities, 2020
In this brief response to Agran et al., I provide data on the extent to which students with the most significant cognitive disabilities (i.e., those students participating in alternate assessments on alternate achievement standards) are separated educationally from their peers without disabilities. I further discuss additional factors that may be…

Rappleye, Jeremy; Komatsu, Hikaru; Uchida, Yukiko; Krys, Kuba; Markus, Hazel – Journal of Education Policy, 2020
Facing increasing critique that PISA focuses too narrowly on cognitive achievement and human/knowledge capital, the OECD has recently shifted some of its focus to student happiness. The 2017 Students' Well-Being report distinguishes between 'happy schools' and 'unhappy schools', showing that among students who combined high performance and life…

Clark, Amy K.; Karvonen, Meagan – Educational Assessment, 2020
Alternate assessments based on alternate achievement standards (AA-AAS) have historically lacked broad validity evidence and an overall evaluation of the extent to which evidence supports intended uses of results. An expanding body of validation literature, the funding of two AA-AAS consortia, and advances in computer-based assessment have…

Ross, Jen; Curwood, Jen Scott; Bell, Amani – E-Learning and Digital Media, 2020
Higher education institutions increasingly expect students to work effectively and critically with multiple modes, semiotic resources and digital tools. However, assessment practices are often insufficient to capture how multimodal artefacts represent disciplinary knowledge in complex ways. This study explores and theorises the design and…

Rennie Center for Education Research & Policy, 2020
This year's Action Guide examines the need for new ways of measuring student success. Academic test scores are just one method of measuring student progress, offering an incomplete picture of student learning and growth. Educators and state leaders recognize that serving all students well requires focusing on their individual needs, including…

Defining and measuring success are not merely process steps, but critical conversations that shape how education is understood and delivered. They influence how individuals within and outside the system perceive the goals of education. They shape the incentives for stakeholders seeking to improve educational outcomes. Methods of measuring success…
