Krupa, Erin; Webel, Corey; McManus, Jason – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2013
We share results from a quasi-experimental study in which we compared achievement between traditional lecture-based and computer-based sections of college algebra on a common multiple choice exam as well as performance on problem solving items. Students in the computer-based group performed better on the final exam and were also more likely to…

Labas, Gladys; Minaya Rowe, Liliana – Online Submission, 2010
This paper reports on how ten school districts and a state university system address a state-funded college readiness program for high school student achievement in mathematics and English. It addresses in qualitative and quantitative detail: (a) the school-university partnership designed to decrease the number of high school students that require…

Livingston, Samuel A.; And Others – 1989
Combinations of five methods of equating test forms and two methods of selecting samples of students for equating were compared for accuracy. The two sampling methods were representative sampling from the population and matching samples on the anchor test score. The equating methods were: (1) the Tucker method; (2) the Levine method; (3) the…

Kulick, Edward; Dorans, Neil J. – 1984
A new approach to assessing unexpected differential item performance (item bias or item fairness) is introduced and applied to the item responses of different subpopulations of Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) takers. The essential features of the standardization approach are described. The primary goal of the standardization approach is to control…

Petersen, Nancy S.; And Others – 1982
In January 1982, the College Board and Educational Testing Service implemented a technical change in the procedures used to equate scores on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). For previous editions of the SAT, a linear equating procedure was used to establish the comparability of scores on different editions. Beginning in January 1982, this…

Spiro, Louis M. – 1978
Student market segmentation separates prospective college students into subgroups with similar characteristics, the most commonly used being geography, demography, attitudes, and behavior. Recruitment efforts can then focus on student segments similar to the present student body or on other students that might be attracted. The goal is to make…

Gana, Rajaram; Hoerl, Arthur E. – Online Submission, 1994
Since the publication of the highly influential "Coleman Report" of 1966, researchers have tried to find inputs, such as school quality, that are associated with student achievement on standardized tests, but have found little. This study finds an underlying association between Scholastic Aptitude Test scores and several measures of…
