Wise, Steven L. – Applied Measurement in Education, 2020
In achievement testing there is typically a practical requirement that the set of items administered should be representative of some target content domain. This is accomplished by establishing test blueprints specifying the content constraints to be followed when selecting the items for a test. Sometimes, however, students give disengaged…

Wu, Haiyan; Liang, Xinya; Yürekli, Hülya; Becker, Betsy Jane; Paek, Insu; Binici, Salih – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2020
The demand for diagnostic feedback has triggered extensive research on cognitive diagnostic models (CDMs), such as the deterministic input, noisy output "and" gate (DINA) model. This study explored two Q-matrix specifications with the DINA model in a statewide large-scale mathematics assessment. The first Q-matrix was developed based on…

Karimova, Könül; Csapó, Beno – Journal of Advanced Academics, 2020
The internal/external (I/E) frame of reference entails high, positive association of mathematics and verbal achievements with matching academic self-concepts but negative or near-zero correlation with their nonmatching self-concepts. This study aimed to extend the traditional I/E model by contrasting the mathematics domain with two foreign…

Gasteiger, Hedwig; Bruns, Julia; Benz, Christiane; Brunner, Esther; Sprenger, Priska – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2020
Measurement instruments of early childhood teachers' mathematical pedagogical content knowledge (MPCK) have to consider the special characteristics of early childhood teaching. Early childhood teaching includes some planned activities but in contrast to learning in school, it is often motivated and generated by situations which unfold…

Avvisati, Francesco – Large-scale Assessments in Education, 2020
This article reviews the history of the measure of socio-economic status in PISA and identifies theoretical underpinnings of the index of economic, social and cultural status (ESCS). It then highlights multiple changes in the instruments and scaling methods used by PISA over time, and suggests ways of resolving the tensions behind some of these…
