George, Ann Cathrice; Robitzsch, Alexander – Applied Measurement in Education, 2018
This article presents a new perspective on measuring gender differences in the large-scale assessment study Trends in International Science Study (TIMSS). The suggested empirical model is directly based on the theoretical competence model of the domain mathematics and thus includes the interaction between content and cognitive sub-competencies.…

Lee, HyeSun – Applied Measurement in Education, 2018
The current simulation study examined the effects of Item Parameter Drift (IPD) occurring in a short scale on parameter estimates in multilevel models where scores from a scale were employed as a time-varying predictor to account for outcome scores. Five factors, including three decisions about IPD, were considered for simulation conditions. It…

Rutkowski, David – Assessment in Education: Principles, Policy & Practice, 2018
In this article I advocate for a new discussion in the field of international large-scale assessments; one that calls for a reexamination of international large-scale assessments (ILSAs) and their use. Expanding on the high-quality work in this special issue I focus on three inherent limitations to international large-scale assessments noted by…

Federicová, Miroslava; Pertold, Filip; Smith, Michael L. – Education Economics, 2018
To sort pupils at the end of primary school, some early-tracking systems apply a mechanism that unwittingly divides classes into two groups: students preparing for exams to enter better schools and everyone else, who decide not to compete for selective schools. Utilizing TIMSS data and a follow-up study in the Czech Republic, we show that this…

Bokhove, Christian – International Journal of Research & Method in Education, 2018
This article reports on an exploratory project in which technology and dynamic social network analysis (SNA) are used for modelling classroom interaction. SNA focuses on the links between social actors, draws on graphic imagery to reveal and display the patterning of those links, and develops mathematical and computational models to describe and…

Sen, Sedat – International Journal of Testing, 2018
Recent research has shown that over-extraction of latent classes can be observed in the Bayesian estimation of the mixed Rasch model when the distribution of ability is non-normal. This study examined the effect of non-normal ability distributions on the number of latent classes in the mixed Rasch model when estimated with maximum likelihood…

Jules, Tavis D.; Sundberg, Kelly Cebold – Global Education Review, 2018
This study uses a quantitative content analysis of learning competences -- as described and prescribed in 21st century frameworks -- and those competences evaluated by international assessments to explore the nexus between recommendation and reality. In drawing insights from the theoretical underpinnings of human capital theory we argue, with…

Gökbulut, Yasin; Eren, Zeynep – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2018
In this research, the effect of using learning logs in the learning of length subjects of primary school fourth graders was investigated. The study group was composed of 35 state primary school students, determined by an easily accessible sampling method in the province of Tokat in 2014-2015 academic years. The method of the study is an…

Hwang, HyeJin – ProQuest LLC, 2018
Reading development in students who are second language learners (SLLs) has been a concern of many educators. It is important to understand reading development in students who are SLLs to effectively support their reading development. The dissertation consists of two studies, presented in two stand-alone manuscripts, that aimed to deepen our…

Stacey, Oliver; De Lazzari, Giulia; Grayson, Hilary; Griffin, Hazel; Jones, Emily; Taylor, Amanda; Thomas, David – International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, 2018
Globalization is a powerful force with far reaching impacts on education and education policy. The growth of large scale international surveys of student achievement and the increasing role played by intergovernmental agencies in education means that the influence that globalization exerts on education is likely to increase even further in the…

Peters-Burton, Erin E.; Johnson, Todd – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2018
In an attempt to broaden participation in STEM, a new type of high school is emerging, high schools which include a focus on engineering, have few or no academic admission criteria, and actively involve students of all levels of ability, known as Inclusive STEM High Schools (ISHSs). One aspect of successful ISHSs includes the intentional and…
