Baccini, Alberto; De Nicolao, Giuseppe – Research Evaluation, 2017
This letter documents some problems in Ancaiani et al. (2015). Namely the evaluation of concordance, based on Cohen's kappa, reported by Ancaiani et al. was not computed on the whole random sample of 9,199 articles, but on a subset of 7,597 articles. The kappas relative to the whole random sample were in the range 0.07-0.15, indicating an…

Davenport, Ernest C.; Davison, Mark L.; Liou, Pey-Yan; Love, Quintin U. – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2016
The main points of Sijtsma and Green and Yang in Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice (34, 4) are that reliability, internal consistency, and unidimensionality are distinct and that Cronbach's alpha may be problematic. Neither of these assertions are at odds with Davenport, Davison, Liou, and Love in the same issue. However, many authors…

Skiba, Russell J.; Artiles, Alfredo J.; Kozleski, Elizabeth B.; Losen, Daniel J.; Harry, Elizabeth G. – Educational Researcher, 2016
In this technical comment, we argue that Morgan et al.'s claim that there is no minority overrepresentation in special education is in error due to (a) sampling considerations, (b) inadequate support from previous and current analyses, and (c) their failure to consider the complexities of special education disproportionality. [For Morgan et al.'s…
