Cao, Chunhua; Kim, Eun Sook; Chen, Yi-Hsin; Ferron, John; Stark, Stephen – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2019
In multilevel multiple-indicator multiple-cause (MIMIC) models, covariates can interact at the within level, at the between level, or across levels. This study examines the performance of multilevel MIMIC models in estimating and detecting the interaction effect of two covariates through a simulation and provides an empirical demonstration of…

Cheng, Ying; Shao, Can; Lathrop, Quinn N. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2016
Due to its flexibility, the multiple-indicator, multiple-causes (MIMIC) model has become an increasingly popular method for the detection of differential item functioning (DIF). In this article, we propose the mediated MIMIC model method to uncover the underlying mechanism of DIF. This method extends the usual MIMIC model by including one variable…

Lee, Soo; Bulut, Okan; Suh, Youngsuk – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2017
A number of studies have found multiple indicators multiple causes (MIMIC) models to be an effective tool in detecting uniform differential item functioning (DIF) for individual items and item bundles. A recently developed MIMIC-interaction model is capable of detecting both uniform and nonuniform DIF in the unidimensional item response theory…

Jin, Ying; Myers, Nicholas D.; Ahn, Soyeon; Penfield, Randall D. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2013
The Rasch model, a member of a larger group of models within item response theory, is widely used in empirical studies. Detection of uniform differential item functioning (DIF) within the Rasch model typically employs null hypothesis testing with a concomitant consideration of effect size (e.g., signed area [SA]). Parametric equivalence between…

Kim, Eun Sook; Yoon, Myeongsun; Lee, Taehun – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2012
Multiple-indicators multiple-causes (MIMIC) modeling is often used to test a latent group mean difference while assuming the equivalence of factor loadings and intercepts over groups. However, this study demonstrated that MIMIC was insensitive to the presence of factor loading noninvariance, which implies that factor loading invariance should be…

Woods, Carol M.; Grimm, Kevin J. – Applied Psychological Measurement, 2011
In extant literature, multiple indicator multiple cause (MIMIC) models have been presented for identifying items that display uniform differential item functioning (DIF) only, not nonuniform DIF. This article addresses, for apparently the first time, the use of MIMIC models for testing both uniform and nonuniform DIF with categorical indicators. A…

Tessema, Kedir – Journal of Leadership Education, 2020
Designing learning experiences that mimic real-life contexts has always been a challenge for leadership educators. As a result, many educators in leadership courses rely on studies of leadership perspectives, self-assessment activities, and textbook case analysis. However, many educators also successfully design microlevel processes and…

Akcan, Rabia; Kabasakal, Kübra Atalay – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2019
The purpose of this study is to determine whether English test items of Undergraduate Placement Exam (UPE) in 2016 contain differential item functioning (DIF) and differential bundle functioning (DBF) in terms of gender and school type and examine the possible sources of bias of DIF items. Mantel Haenszel (MH), Simultaneous Item Bias Test…

Cheng, Yu-Lin – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
In this study, EFL learners who listened to four short context-rich audio files each delivered in an unfamiliar English accent were required to produce best-attempt transcriptions and accent imitation recordings. Results indicate that exposure alone does not suffice to eliminate accent impact on EFL listeners. Importantly, results from one-way…

Odakura, Abigail – JALT CALL Journal, 2013
The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the talking-pen device called the Mimic Me, an educational technology product of a large English conversation school in Japan, as an educational learning tool. The product will be reviewed in terms of its developmental appropriateness for the target audience based on current research. Although the Mimic Me…

Whittaker, Tiffany A. – Structural Equation Modeling: A Multidisciplinary Journal, 2013
Latent means methods such as multiple-indicator multiple-cause (MIMIC) and structured means modeling (SMM) allow researchers to determine whether or not a significant difference exists between groups' factor means. Strong invariance is typically recommended when interpreting latent mean differences. The extent of the impact of noninvariant…

Sideridis, Georgios D.; Tsaousis, Ioannis; Al-harbi, Khaleel A. – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2015
The purpose of the present study was to extend the model of measurement invariance by simultaneously estimating invariance across multiple populations in the dichotomous instrument case using multi-group confirmatory factor analytic and multiple indicator multiple causes (MIMIC) methodologies. Using the Arabic version of the General Aptitude Test…

An adapted version of the Wechsler Preschool and Primary Scale of Intelligence--Third Edition (WPPSI-III) was administered to assess cognitive functioning among 1,253 5-year-old children from the Malnutrition and Enteric Disease (MAL-ED) study--an international, multisite study investigating multiple aspects of child development. In this study,…

Cardona Mejía, Liliana Maria; Pardo del Val, Manuela; Dasí Coscollar, Maria del S. Àngels – International Journal of Research in Education and Science, 2020
This article deals with the institutional theory and isomorphism, from the processes of organizational change in higher education institutions. In a first phase, we analyze, through a questionnaire, the situations and causes of change in higher education institutions (HEI), more precisely in the field knowledge of Physical Education in Colombia.…
