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…

Melián Díaz, Dámari; Saorín, José Luis; Carbonell-Carrera, Carlos; de la Torre Cantero, Jorge – Technology, Pedagogy and Education, 2020
The relationship between two-dimensional elements and three-dimensional objects is an abstract process which generates difficulty for learning. This ability can be improved with exercises designed to improve spatial abilities. Many of those exercises aim at offering a single solution with the result that they are not the most suitable for…

Carrera, Carlos Carbonell; Perez, Jose Luis Saorin; Cantero, Jorge de la Torre – International Research in Geographical and Environmental Education, 2018
In the field of geographical and environmental education, maps and geo-referenced information are frequently used, in which the earth's surfaces are represented in a two-dimensional (2D) way. Students have difficulty interpreting the relief representation and switching between 2D and 3D scenarios. Digital terrain modelling is added to the…

Saorin, José Luis; Carbonell-Carrera, Carlos; Cantero, Jorge de la Torre; Meier, Cecile; Aleman, Drago Diaz – Turkish Online Journal of Educational Technology - TOJET, 2017
Spatial interpretation features as a skill to acquire in the educational curricula. The visualization and interpretation of three-dimensional objects in tactile devices and the possibility of digital manufacturing with 3D printers, offers an opportunity to include replicas of sculptures in teaching and, thus, facilitate the 3D interpretation of…

Farias, Gonzalo; Muñoz de la Peña, David; Gómez-Estern, Fabio; De la Torre, Luis; Sánchez, Carlos; Dormido, Sebastián – Interactive Learning Environments, 2016
Automatic evaluation is a challenging field that has been addressed by the academic community in order to reduce the assessment workload. In this work we present a new element for the authoring tool Easy Java Simulations (EJS). This element, which is named automatic evaluation element (AEE), provides automatic evaluation to virtual and remote…

de la Torre, Jimmy – Journal of Educational and Behavioral Statistics, 2009
Cognitive and skills diagnosis models are psychometric models that have immense potential to provide rich information relevant for instruction and learning. However, wider applications of these models have been hampered by their novelty and the lack of commercially available software that can be used to analyze data from this psychometric…

de la Torre, Jimmy – Applied Psychological Measurement, 2009
For one reason or another, various sources of information, namely, ancillary variables and correlational structure of the latent abilities, which are usually available in most testing situations, are ignored in ability estimation. A general model that incorporates these sources of information is proposed in this article. The model has a general…

de la Torre, Jimmy – Applied Psychological Measurement, 2008
Recent work has shown that multidimensionally scoring responses from different tests can provide better ability estimates. For educational assessment data, applications of this approach have been limited to binary scores. Of the different variants, the de la Torre and Patz model is considered more general because implementing the scoring procedure…

de la Luz Reyes, Maria, Ed. – Teachers College Press, 2011
This engaging collection examines the personal narratives of a select group of well-respected educators who attained biliteracy at a young age, and in the era before bilingual education. Their autobiographical accounts celebrate and make visible a linguistic potential that has been largely ignored in schools and underscores the inextricable and…

Allensworth, Elaine M.; Gwynne, Julia A.; Moore, Paul; de La Torre, Marisa – University of Chicago Consortium on Chicago School Research, 2014
The transition from eighth grade to high school results in a substantial drop in course performance for many students. These declines in performance lead students to fall off-track for obtaining high school and college degrees. By using data on students' middle grade performance, high school staff can set goals for their students to help them meet…

de la Torre, Jimmy; Hong, Yuan – Applied Psychological Measurement, 2010
Sample size ranks as one of the most important factors that affect the item calibration task. However, due to practical concerns (e.g., item exposure) items are typically calibrated with much smaller samples than what is desired. To address the need for a more flexible framework that can be used in small sample item calibration, this article…

Allensworth, Elaine M.; Gwynne, Julia A.; Moore, Paul; de La Torre, Marisa – University of Chicago Consortium on Chicago School Research, 2014
Preparation for college and careers begins when students are young, yet, it can be difficult for middle grade educators to know how best to prepare these students for future success. Middle grade practitioners need to know what to pay attention to and who needs additional support. Without knowing how to identify students who are on-track for high…

Allensworth, Elaine M.; Gwynne, Julia A.; Moore, Paul; de la Torre, Marisa – University of Chicago Consortium on Chicago School Research, 2014
There is a very large population of students who struggle with the transition from the middle grades to high school, raising concerns that high school failures are partially a function of poor middle grade preparation. As a result, middle grade practitioners are grappling with questions about what skills students need to succeed in high school,…

Torres, Tera, Ed.; Barber, Catherine R., Ed. – Charles C. Thomas, Publisher, Ltd, 2017
Special education law and practice have undergone profound transformation over the past 50 years. Students with disabilities are now more likely to receive a free and appropriate education in the least restrictive environment possible; however, the ideals of the law have not always been manifested in effective practice. Although special education…

de la Torre, Jimmy; Song, Hao – Applied Psychological Measurement, 2009
Assessments consisting of different domains (e.g., content areas, objectives) are typically multidimensional in nature but are commonly assumed to be unidimensional for estimation purposes. The different domains of these assessments are further treated as multi-unidimensional tests for the purpose of obtaining diagnostic information. However, when…
