Yu, Qiaona – Applied Linguistics, 2021
Language complexity reveals the ability to use a wide and varied range of sophisticated structures and vocabulary. Although different languages compose complexity differently, complexity measures such as the T-unit have typically been based on clause subordination, which may underrepresent complexity and threaten the validity of studies. This…

Hjärne, Marcus S. – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2021
Extended time is a commonly-used test adaptation for standardised high-stakes tests. In this study, extended time provided for test-takers with dyslexia is examined. Data from standard versions of the Swedish Scholastic Aptitude Test (SweSAT) and data from test administrations where extra time is provided was used. Indications are that the…

Monteiro, Sandra D.; Sherbino, Jonathan; Schmidt, Henk; Mamede, Silvia; Ilgen, Jonathan; Norman, Geoff – Advances in Health Sciences Education, 2020
While multiple theories exist to explain the diagnostic process, there are few available assessments that reliably determine diagnostic competence in trainees. Most methods focus on aspects of the process of diagnostic reasoning, such as the relation between case features and diagnostic hypotheses. Inevitably, detailed elucidation of aspects of…

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…

Schweizer, Karl; Reiß, Siegbert; Troche, Stefan – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2019
The article reports three simulation studies conducted to find out whether the effect of a time limit for testing impairs model fit in investigations of structural validity, whether the representation of the assumed source of the effect prevents impairment of model fit and whether it is possible to identify and discriminate this method effect from…

Forthmann, Boris; Grotjahn, Rüdiger; Doebler, Philipp; Baghaei, Purya – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2020
As measures of general language proficiency, C-tests are ubiquitous in language testing. Speeded C-tests are quite recent developments in the field and are deemed to be more discriminatory and provide more accurate diagnostic information than power C-tests especially with high-ability participants. Item response theory modeling of speeded C-tests…

Ucan, Izzet – African Educational Research Journal, 2020
The aim of this study is to determine the most usable of the three most commonly used tests for male and female athletes, which are applied to determine the agility levels of athletes according to sports branches in terms of their basic motor characteristics. The research group consists of a total of 72 volunteer students, 26 females and 46 males,…

Kling, Gina; Bay-Williams, Jennifer M. – Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK-12, 2021
Ensuring students master their basic facts is a shared priority among teachers, parents, and administrators. As a result, the number of available resources for basic facts instruction, from concrete to virtual, is vast and continues to grow. Basic fact fluency has always been of interest to elementary school teachers and is particularly relevant…

Toppo, Greg – Education Next, 2020
Accommodations, deserved or undeserved, have been under the microscope in 2019. They played a prominent role in this year's Varsity Blues college admissions scandal, with prosecutors alleging that wealthy parents persuaded willing psychologists to say their child needed extra time in special testing centers--in a few cases, ringers proctored the…

Clack, Alice; Dommett, Eleanor J. – Education Sciences, 2021
Student Approaches to Learning (SAL) have been the focus of much research, typically linking different approaches, e.g., surface and deep, to different assessment types. However, much of the previous research has not considered the different conditions under which different types of assessment occur and the different types of feedback they…

Davison, Mark L. – Measurement: Interdisciplinary Research and Perspectives, 2016
The answer to the question, "Ability, speed, or both?" may be "both at once" if speed is simply a manifestation of ability. If differences in speed are manifestations of differences in ability, then both speed and ability may reflect a single dimension best characterized by a single score. While measurement of speed has proven…

Kostewicz, Douglas; Kubina, Richard M., Jr. – Reading Improvement, 2020
Teachers have used the method of repeated readings to build oral reading fluency in students with and without special needs. A new fluency building intervention called interval sprinting uses shorter timing intervals (i.e., sprints) across a passage. This study used an alternating treatment design to compare repeated readings and interval…

Goikoetxea, Edurne; Van Bon, Wim; Fraga, Gorka; Martínez, Naroa – Electronic Journal of Research in Educational Psychology, 2019
Introduction: Teachers and researchers often need to evaluate word decoding skill in groupwise and in a short time. The LEO-1-min test is created to measure word reading through a lexical decision procedure where the examinee identifies pseudowords in a list of frequent words. Objetive: To examine the reliability and validity of LEO-1-min, a…

Qiu, Yuxi; Huggins-Manley, Anne Corinne – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2019
This study aimed to assess the accuracy of the empirical item characteristic curve (EICC) preequating method given the presence of test speededness. The simulation design of this study considered the proportion of speededness, speededness point, speededness rate, proportion of missing on speeded items, sample size, and test length. After crossing…

Harik, Polina; Clauser, Brian E.; Grabovsky, Irina; Baldwin, Peter; Margolis, Melissa J.; Bucak, Deniz; Jodoin, Michael; Walsh, William; Haist, Steven – Journal of Educational Measurement, 2018
Test administrators are appropriately concerned about the potential for time constraints to impact the validity of score interpretations; psychometric efforts to evaluate the impact of speededness date back more than half a century. The widespread move to computerized test delivery has led to the development of new approaches to evaluating how…
