Joemari Olea; Kevin Carl Santos – Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, 2024
Although the generalized deterministic inputs, noisy "and" gate model (G-DINA; de la Torre, 2011) is a general cognitive diagnosis model (CDM), it does not account for the heterogeneity that is rooted from the existing latent groups in the population of examinees. To address this, this study proposes the mixture G-DINA model, a CDM that…

de la Torre, Marisa; Freire, Silvana; Blanchard, Alyssa – University of Chicago Consortium on School Research, 2021
English Learners (ELs) are students from whom much is expected: they are tasked with mastering grade-level content while also learning English, a language in which they are not fully proficient. Mastering academic English--the set of language skills necessary for success in school--is a developmental process that takes at least five to seven…
