Wheeler, Jordan M.; Engelhard, George; Wang, Jue – Measurement: Interdisciplinary Research and Perspectives, 2022
Objectively scoring constructed-response items on educational assessments has long been a challenge due to the use of human raters. Even well-trained raters using a rubric can inaccurately assess essays. Unfolding models measure rater's scoring accuracy by capturing the discrepancy between criterion and operational ratings by placing essays on an…

Beseiso, Majdi; Alzubi, Omar A.; Rashaideh, Hasan – Journal of Computing in Higher Education, 2021
E-learning is gradually gaining prominence in higher education, with universities enlarging provision and more students getting enrolled. The effectiveness of automated essay scoring (AES) is thus holding a strong appeal to universities for managing an increasing learning interest and reducing costs associated with human raters. The growth in…

Khodi, Ali – Language Testing in Asia, 2021
The present study attempted to to investigate factors which affect EFL writing scores through using generalizability theory (G-theory). To this purpose, one hundred and twenty students participated in one independent and one integrated writing tasks. Proceeding, their performances were scored by six raters: one self-rating, three peers,-rating and…

Wang, Jue; Engelhard, George, Jr. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2019
The purpose of this study is to explore the use of unfolding models for evaluating the quality of ratings obtained in rater-mediated assessments. Two different judgmental processes can be used to conceptualize ratings: impersonal judgments and personal preferences. Impersonal judgments are typically expected in rater-mediated assessments, and…

Shin, Dongkwang; Kwon, Suh Keong; Lee, Yongsang – Language Testing in Asia, 2021
Language learners today have access to a much wider choice of resources and language-support tools that aid their writing processes. While research on the convenience and flexibility of the writing resources that learners use in real-life writing activities have argued for a re-conceptualization of writing ability, little is known about the effect…

Keller-Margulis, Milena A.; Mercer, Sterett H.; Matta, Michael – Reading and Writing: An Interdisciplinary Journal, 2021
Existing approaches to measuring writing performance are insufficient in terms of both technical adequacy as well as feasibility for use as a screening measure. This study examined the validity and diagnostic accuracy of several approaches to automated text evaluation as well as written expression curriculum-based measurement (WE-CBM) to determine…

Mercer, Sterett H.; Cannon, Joanna E.; Squires, Bonita; Guo, Yue; Pinco, Ella – Canadian Journal of School Psychology, 2021
We examined the extent to which automated written expression curriculum-based measurement (aWE-CBM) can be accurately used to computer score student writing samples for screening and progress monitoring. Students (n = 174) with learning difficulties in Grades 1 to 12 who received 1:1 academic tutoring through a community-based organization…

Jacobson, Brad; Bach, Amy – Journal of Literacy Research, 2022
This article adds to a growing body of research tracing the influence of neoliberal education reforms on policy and practice by showing the ways in which student writers are positioned within market-oriented discourses and values through Texas state exam writing prompts. As a genre-in-use, the writing prompts are seemingly mundane texts that…

Runge, Timothy J. – Communique, 2022
Reading, writing, and mathematics are widely regarded as foundational academic skills upon which many other academic skills depend. Consequently, each receives a considerable allocation of resources for instruction, assessment, and intervention in K-12 education (Hooper, 2002). An additional indicator of the importance of these skills is the…

Deniz, Kaan Zulfikar; Ilican, Emel – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2021
This study aims to compare the G and Phi coefficients as estimated by D studies for a measurement tool with the G and Phi coefficients obtained from real cases in which items of differing difficulty levels were added and also to determine the conditions under which the D studies estimated reliability coefficients closer to reality. The study group…

Fisher, R.; Brock, C. H.; Frahm, T.; Van Wig, A.; Gillis, V. R. – Studies in Continuing Education, 2020
This qualitative study focuses on critical incidents identified by three U.S. PhD students as they reflected on the process of writing qualifying examinations. This study is couched in sociocultural conceptions of literacy, which view the qualifying exam as a social practice. Extending previous research of doctoral student writing and utilising a…

Payan, Anita M.; Keller-Margulis, Milena; Burridge, Andrea B.; McQuillin, Samuel D.; Hassett, Kristen S. – Assessment for Effective Intervention, 2019
National test data indicate that some students do not perform well in writing, suggesting a need to identify students at risk for poor performance. Research supports Written Expression Curriculum-Based Measurement (WE-CBM) as an indicator of writing proficiency, but it is less commonly used in practice. This study examined the usability of WE-CBM…

Huebner, Alan; Skar, Gustaf B. – Practical Assessment, Research & Evaluation, 2021
Writing assessments often consist of students responding to multiple prompts, which are judged by more than one rater. To establish the reliability of these assessments, there exist different methods to disentangle variation due to prompts and raters, including classical test theory, Many Facet Rasch Measurement (MFRM), and Generalizability Theory…

Csapodi, Csaba; Hoffmann, Miklós – Education Sciences, 2021
The new National Core Curriculum came into force in September 2020 in Hungarian schools. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a deep impact on the final stages of its development. In this paper we have selected two areas for analysis: the fundamental principles of mathematics curriculum and the matriculation exam in mathematics. We propose improvements…
