Erturk, Zafer; Oyar, Esra – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2021
Studies aiming to make cross-cultural comparisons first should establish measurement invariance in the groups to be compared because results obtained from such comparisons may be artificial in the event that measurement invariance cannot be established. The purpose of this study is to investigate the measurement invariance of the data obtained…

Hole, Arne; Grønmo, Liv Sissel; Onstad, Torgeir – Large-scale Assessments in Education, 2018
Background: This paper discusses a framework for analyzing the dependence on mathematical theory in test items, that is, a framework for discussing to what extent knowledge of mathematical theory is helpful for the student in solving the item. The framework can be applied to any test in which some knowledge of mathematical theory may be useful,…

Chirkina, Tatiana; Khavenson, Tatiana; Pinskaya, Marina; Zvyagintsev, Roman – Issues in Educational Research, 2020
It is well established that family socio-economic status (SES) is strongly related to academic performance. Nonetheless, there is a group of children with high levels of academic achievement who come from disadvantaged family backgrounds. These children possess what is called 'academic resilience'. In our study, we want to see whether the two…

Wu, Derek – Education Finance and Policy, 2020
Schools often have to decide between extending the length of the school year or the school day. This paper examines the effects of changes in the distribution of instructional time on eighth-grade student achievement through a methodological framework that disaggregates total yearly instructional time into separate inputs for days per year and…

Morgan, Clara; Ibrahim, Ali – Journal of Education Policy, 2020
Scholars of the global phenomenon of international student assessments (e.g., PISA, TIMSS) have paid little attention to the ways in which student users of these material objects are "configured" in nations that are located at the periphery of knowledge production. Our analysis takes the United Arab Emirates as its case study to capture…
