Strachan, Tyler; Cho, Uk Hyun; Kim, Kyung Yong; Willse, John T.; Chen, Shyh-Huei; Ip, Edward H.; Ackerman, Terry A.; Weeks, Jonathan P. – Journal of Educational Measurement, 2021
In vertical scaling, results of tests from several different grade levels are placed on a common scale. Most vertical scaling methodologies rely heavily on the assumption that the construct being measured is unidimensional. In many testing situations, however, such an assumption could be problematic. For instance, the construct measured at one…

Pichot, Nicolas; Bonetto, Eric; Pavani, Jean-Baptiste; Arciszewski, Thomas; Bonnardel, Nathalie; Weisberg, Robert W. – Creativity Research Journal, 2022
In scientific research on creativity, there has been considerable debate concerning the criteria by which a production can be judged more or less creative, that is, about the definition of "creativity." The most frequent definition -- the "standard" definition -- incorporates the criteria of "novelty" and…

van Dijk, Wilhelmina; Huggins-Manley, A. Corinne; Gage, Nicholas A.; Lane, Holly B.; Coyne, Michael – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2022
In reading intervention research, implementation fidelity is assumed to be positively related to student outcomes, but the methods used to measure fidelity are often treated as an afterthought. Fidelity has been conceptualized and measured in many different ways, suggesting a lack of construct validity. One aspect of construct validity is the…

It is necessary to supply proof regarding the construct validity of the scales. Especially, when new scales are developed the construct validity is researched by the Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA). Generally, factor extraction is performed via the Principal Component Analysis (PCA) which is not exactly factor analysis and the Principal Axis…

Lee, Walter C.; Hall, Janice L.; Godwin, Allison; Knight, David B.; Verdín, Dina – Journal of Engineering Education, 2022
Background: Supporting undergraduate students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) has been a persistent need. However, assessing the impact of support efforts can prove challenging as it is difficult to operationalize student support and subsequently monitor the combined impacts of the various supports to which students…

Lehner, Katharina; Ziegler, Wolfram – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2022
Purpose: Despite extensive research into communication-related parameters in dysarthria, such as intelligibility, naturalness, and perceived listener effort, the existing evidence has not been translated into a clinically applicable, comprehensive, and valid diagnostic tool so far. This study addresses Communication-Related Parameters in Speech…

Le, Thanh M.; Dika, Sandra L.; D'Amico, Mark M.; Wang, Yi – Journal of The First-Year Experience & Students in Transition, 2022
Despite significant policy and practitioner attention to transfer, scholarship on post-transfer experiences at the four-year institution is limited. In this study, we used confirmatory factor analysis to explore the model fit of the 2013 National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) indicator model for persisting transfer students at a single…

Vilkova, Kseniia; Shcheglova, Irina – Education and Information Technologies, 2021
Researchers see self-regulated learning (SRL) as a fundamental skill for succeeding in massive open online courses (MOOCs). However, there is no sufficient evidence of adequate functioning of SRL dimensions such as environment structuring, goal setting, time management, help-seeking, task strategies, and self-evaluation in the MOOC environment.…
