Jordano de la Torre, María – Research-publishing.net, 2019
The last five years have been witnessing the publication of two crucial documents in the field of language teaching and technology: 'CEFR: Companion Volume with New Descriptors' (Council of Europe, 2018) and 'DigCompEdu' (Punie & Redecker, 2017). These publications will be decisive for the design of new study plans aimed at the training of…

de la Torre, R.; Berbegal-Mirabent, J. – Innovations in Education and Teaching International, 2020
This study describes an intervention carried out in the course on Statistics within the Bachelors' Degree in Business Administration, and Marketing and Digital Communication. Prior to it, problems related to attention in class and low motivation were identified. A game-based activity was designed aiming at boosting students' attention and…

Ma, Wenchao; de la Torre, Jimmy – Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, 2019
Solving a constructed-response item usually requires successfully performing a sequence of tasks. Each task could involve different attributes, and those required attributes may be "condensed" in various ways to produce the responses. The sequential generalized deterministic input noisy "and" gate model is a general cognitive…

Torre, Jimmy de la; Akbay, Lokman – Eurasian Journal of Educational Research, 2019
Purpose: Well-designed assessment methodologies and various cognitive diagnosis models (CDMs) to extract diagnostic information about examinees' individual strengths and weaknesses have been developed. Due to this novelty, as well as educational specialists' lack of familiarity with CDMs, their applications are not widespread. This article aims at…

Ma, Wenchao; de la Torre, Jimmy – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2019
In this ITEMS module, we introduce the generalized deterministic inputs, noisy "and" gate (G-DINA) model, which is a general framework for specifying, estimating, and evaluating a wide variety of cognitive diagnosis models. The module contains a nontechnical introduction to diagnostic measurement, an introductory overview of the G-DINA…

Minchen, Nathan; de la Torre, Jimmy – Measurement: Interdisciplinary Research and Perspectives, 2018
Cognitive diagnosis models (CDMs) allow for the extraction of fine-grained, multidimensional diagnostic information from appropriately designed tests. In recent years, interest in such models has grown as formative assessment grows in popularity. Many dichotomous as well as several polytomous CDMs have been proposed in the last two decades, but…

Terzi, Ragip; de la Torre, Jimmy – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2018
In cognitive diagnosis modeling, the attributes required for each item are specified in the Q-matrix. The traditional way of constructing a Q-matrix based on expert opinion is inherently subjective, consequently resulting in serious validity concerns. The current study proposes a new validation method under the deterministic inputs, noisy…

Hou, Likun; Terzi, Ragip; de la Torre, Jimmy – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2020
This study aims to conduct differential item functioning analyses in the context of cognitive diagnosis assessments using various formulations of the Wald test. In implementing the Wald test, two scenarios are considered: one where the underlying reduced model can be assumed; and another where a saturated CDM is used. Illustration of the different…

Herencia Grillo, Amalia; Hernández de la Torre, Elena – PROFILE: Issues in Teachers' Professional Development, 2020
This paper investigates an aspect of study abroad programs that has rarely been studied before: the training needs of local education professionals in Spain. Through a mixed-method, using a questionnaire completed by 103 participants, and interviews with 15 of them, we focus on their previous formal specific training and their perspective on the…

Ma, Wenchao; Minchen, Nathan; de la Torre, Jimmy – Measurement: Interdisciplinary Research and Perspectives, 2020
Cognitive diagnosis models (CDMs) have gained increasing popularity recently because of their potential to provide diagnostic inferences that can inform learning and teaching. However, the development of cognitive diagnostic assessments (CDAs) is lagging behind the development of the associated psychometric models. At present, it is not clear…

Finkelman, Matthew D.; de la Torre, Jimmy; Karp, Jeremy A. – International Journal of Testing, 2020
Cognitive diagnosis models (CDMs) have been studied as a means of providing detailed diagnostic information about the skills that have been mastered, and the skills that have not, by examinees. Prior research has examined the use of automated test assembly (ATA) alongside CDMs; however, no previous study has investigated how to perform ATA when a…

de la Torre, Adela – Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, 2014
Niños Sanos, Familia Sana (NSFS) is a 5-year multi-intervention study aimed at preventing childhood obesity among Mexican-origin children in rural California. Using a transdisciplinary approach and community-based participatory research (CBPR) methodology, NSFS's development included a diversely trained team working in collaboration with community…

Cowhy, Jennifer R.; de la Torre, Marisa – University of Chicago Consortium on School Research, 2017
The Success Project was a multi-year effort that aimed to better prepare middle grade students for the transition to and success in high school and beyond. Underlying this initiative was a belief that many urban public middle grades students in the United States enter high school without sufficient social supports and academic skills to succeed in…

de la Torre, Eva M.; Rossi, Federica; Sagarra, Marti – Studies in Higher Education, 2019
It has been suggested that higher education institutions (HEIs) may develop different activity profiles (including research, teaching and socio-economic engagement) in their attempt to maximise the fit between institutional resources and strategic opportunities; the latter include strategies of engagement with different groups of external…

Philipp, Michel; Strobl, Carolin; de la Torre, Jimmy; Zeileis, Achim – Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, 2018
Cognitive diagnosis models (CDMs) are an increasingly popular method to assess mastery or nonmastery of a set of fine-grained abilities in educational or psychological assessments. Several inference techniques are available to quantify the uncertainty of model parameter estimates, to compare different versions of CDMs, or to check model…
