Marland, Joshua; Harrick, Matthew; Sireci, Stephen G. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2020
Student assessment nonparticipation (or opt out) has increased substantially in K-12 schools in states across the country. This increase in opt out has the potential to impact achievement and growth (or value-added) measures used for educator and institutional accountability. In this simulation study, we investigated the extent to which…

Himelfarb, Igor; Marcoulides, Katerina M.; Fang, Guoliang; Shotts, Bruce L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2020
The chiropractic clinical competency examination uses groups of items that are integrated by a common case vignette. The nature of the vignette items violates the assumption of local independence for items nested within a vignette. This study examines via simulation a new algorithmic approach for addressing the local independence violation problem…

Kim, Kyung Yong – Journal of Educational Measurement, 2020
New items are often evaluated prior to their operational use to obtain item response theory (IRT) item parameter estimates for quality control purposes. Fixed parameter calibration is one linking method that is widely used to estimate parameters for new items and place them on the desired scale. This article provides detailed descriptions of two…

van Esch, Patrick; von der Heidt, Tania; Frethey-Bentham, Catherine; Northey, Gavin – Marketing Education Review, 2020
We report on an experiment to investigate the effect of an online asynchronous marketing simulation on student engagement and GPA. Engagement was measured in terms of conscious attention, enthused participation and social connection. The participants were 45 students undertaking marketing management at an American university over one semester.…

Hewat, Sally; Penman, Adriana; Davidson, Bronwyn; Baldac, Stacey; Howells, Simone; Walters, Joanne; Purcell, Alison; Cardell, Elizabeth; McCabe, Patricia; Caird, Emma; Ward, Elizabeth; Hill, Anne E. – International Journal of Language & Communication Disorders, 2020
Background: Simulation-based learning provides students with a safe learning environment, guaranteed exposure to specific clinical scenarios and patients, time for reflection and repetition of tasks, and an opportunity to receive feedback from multiple sources. Research including studies specific to allied health training programmes have…

Whitelock, Vincent G. – Journal of Information Systems Education, 2020
This paper presents a hands-on simulation that is conducted in an introductory integrated supply chain management course using enterprise resource planning concepts associated with the Cash-to-Cash Manufacturing Operating Cycle. More specifically, this activity simulates the activities in the procure-to-pay, plan-to-produce, and order-to-cash…

Jonson, Cheryl Lero; Moon, Melissa M.; Hendry, Joseph A. – Journal of School Violence, 2020
Two paradigms inform responses to active shooting situations: a traditional lockdown approach where individuals find cover in a classroom and lock the door, and a multi-option approach where individuals evacuate the area, create barricades, and, in last resort situations, actively resist the gunman. While a majority of schools conduct active…

Probst, Charlotte; Vu, Tuong Manh; Epstein, Joshua M.; Nielsen, Alexandra E.; Buckley, Charlotte; Brennan, Alan; Rehm, Jürgen; Purshouse, Robin C. – Health Education & Behavior, 2020
Background: By defining what is "normal," appropriate, expected, and unacceptable, social norms shape human behavior. However, the individual-level mechanisms through which social norms impact population-level trends in health-relevant behaviors are not well understood. Aims: To test the ability of social norms mechanisms to predict…

Brandmark, Allison; Byrne, Meredith; O'Brien, Karly; Hogan, Kate; Daniel, David B.; Jakobsen, Krisztina V. – Teaching of Psychology, 2020
Translational research--a bridge between research in more controlled settings and application in more complex contexts--is an essential step in developing effective evidence-based practices. Yet, it is rare. Previous lab-based research has recommended wakeful rest (WR)--a relaxed state of mind in the absence of activity--as a classroom…

Mansolf, Maxwell; Jorgensen, Terrence D.; Enders, Craig K. – Grantee Submission, 2020
Structural equation modeling (SEM) applications routinely employ a trilogy of significance tests that includes the likelihood ratio test, Wald test, and score test or modification index. Researchers use these tests to assess global model fit, evaluate whether individual estimates differ from zero, and identify potential sources of local misfit,…

Tummons, Jonathan – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2020
Within professional higher education, the construct of assessment validity is used to make assumptions about the extent to which students are able to replicate in professional practice what they have learned during their studies through the provision of authentic simulated opportunities to practice. Drawing on the work of Bruno Latour, this…

Yesiltas, Gonca; Paek, Insu – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2020
A log-linear model (LLM) is a well-known statistical method to examine the relationship among categorical variables. This study investigated the performance of LLM in detecting differential item functioning (DIF) for polytomously scored items via simulations where various sample sizes, ability mean differences (impact), and DIF types were…

Ke, Fengfeng; M. Clark, Kathleen – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2020
This mixed-method study aims to explore the feasibility of using the game-based, multimodal representation of mathematical problems to support middle school students' practice and performance of math problem representation and solving. A three-dimensional architectural simulation game, called E-Rebuild, was developed to engage students in…

Sewell, Karen M. – Journal of Social Work Education, 2020
Social work students are tasked with learning the meta and procedural competencies required of the profession while facing their own emotional responses to vulnerable populations and managing clients' difficult experiences. Social work educators can support students in exploring, understanding, and learning to tolerate, regulate, and manage their…

Jaschke, Paul R. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
The ability to separate, identify, and quantify proteins from complex mixtures are key foundational methods across biochemistry teaching and research. In particular, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) is an important technique that is used to measure antigen concentrations in both industry and academia. There are four categories of ELISA,…
