Wolf, Mikyung Kim; Yoo, Hanwook; Guzman-Orth, Danielle; Abedi, Jamal – Educational Assessment, 2022
Implementing a randomized controlled trial design, the present study investigated the effects of two types of accommodations, linguistic modification and a glossary, for English learners (ELs) taking a computer-based mathematics assessment. Process data including response time and clicks on glossary words were also examined to better interpret…

O'Donnell, Francis; Sireci, Stephen G. – Educational Assessment, 2022
Since the standards-based assessment practices required by the No Child Left Behind legislation, almost all students in the United States are "labeled" according to their performance on educational achievement tests. In spite of their widespread use in reporting test results, research on how achievement level labels are perceived by…

Grapin, Scott E.; Llosa, Lorena – Educational Assessment, 2022
Traditionally, content assessments have been carried out through written language. However, the latest standards in U.S. K-12 education expect all students, including English learners (ELs), to demonstrate their content learning using multiple modalities. This study examined the performance of fifth-grade students at varying levels of English…

Pereira, Diana; Cadime, Irene; Flores, Maria Assunção; Pinheiro, Cláudia; Santos, Patrícia – Educational Assessment, 2022
This study focuses on the effect of the programme variable on the purposes and effects that students associate with assessment, on the assessment methods used and on the perceived use of assessment. Data were collected in five Portuguese Public Universities through a survey (n = 4144) and focus group (n = 250) with students enrolled in different…

Phillips, Sarah F.; Ferguson, Ronald F.; Rowley, Jacob F. S. – Educational Assessment, 2021
School systems are increasingly incorporating student perceptions of teaching effectiveness into educator accountability systems. Using Tripod's 7Cs™ Framework of Teaching Effectiveness, this study examines key issues in validating student perception data for use in this manner. Analyses examine the internal structure of 7Cs scores and the extent…

Krammer, Georg; Pflanzl, Barbara; Lenske, Gerlinde; Mayr, Johannes – Educational Assessment, 2021
Comparing teachers' self-assessment to classes' assessment of quality of teaching can offer insights for educational research and be a valuable resource for teachers' continuous professional development. However, the quality of teaching needs to be measured in the same way across perspectives for this comparison to be meaningful. We used data from…

Ulitzsch, Esther; Penk, Christiane; von Davier, Matthias; Pohl, Steffi – Educational Assessment, 2021
Identifying and considering test-taking effort is of utmost importance for drawing valid inferences on examinee competency in low-stakes tests. Different approaches exist for doing so. The speed-accuracy+engagement model aims at identifying non-effortful test-taking behavior in terms of nonresponse and rapid guessing based on responses and…

Buono, Stephanie; Jang, Eunice Eunhee – Educational Assessment, 2021
Increasing linguistic diversity in classrooms has led researchers to examine the validity and fairness of standardized achievement tests, specifically concerning whether test score interpretations are free of bias and score use is fair for all students. This study examined whether mathematics achievement test items that contain complex language…

Myers, Aaron J.; Finney, Sara J. – Educational Assessment, 2021
The indirect effect of perceived test importance on test performance via examinee effort is often modeled using importance and effort scores measured "after" test completion, which does not align with their theoretical temporal ordering. These retrospectively measured scores may be influenced by examinees' test performance. To…

Rifenbark, Graham; Lombardi, Allison; Freeman, Jennifer – Educational Assessment, 2021
In this study (n = 5037) we further investigated the construct validity of the Georgia Brief School Climate Inventory (GBS). Despite containing ordinal items (e.g., ordered-responses), the GBS has only been examined using linear approaches. To fill this void, we employed confirmatory item factor analysis (IFA) to examine the factor structure…

Zwick, Rebecca; Blatter, Andrew; Ye, Lei; Isham, Steven – Educational Assessment, 2021
Today, postsecondary institutions in the US typically wish to enroll entering classes that are both academically qualified and diverse. Although the definition of diversity varies from school to school, the challenge is essentially the same: How can academic objectives be combined with goals that involve the composition of the entering class? Many…

Westrick, Paul A.; Schmidt, Frank L.; Le, Huy; Robbins, Steven B.; Radunzel, Justine M. R. – Educational Assessment, 2021
This meta-analytic path analysis presents evidence that first-year academic performance (FYAP), measured by first-year grade point average (FYGPA) plays the major role in determining second-year student retention and that socioeconomic status (SES), measured by parental income, plays a negligible role. Based on large sample data used in a previous…

Pitsia, Vasiliki; Karakolidis, Anastasios; Lehane, Paula – Educational Assessment, 2021
Evidence suggests that the quality of teachers' instructional practices can be improved when these are informed by relevant assessment data. Drawing on a sample of 1,300 primary school teachers in Ireland, this study examined the extent to which teachers use standardized test results for instructional purposes as well as the role of several…

Wise, Steven L.; Im, Sukkeun; Lee, Jay – Educational Assessment, 2021
This study investigated test-taking engagement on the Spring 2019 administration of a large-scale state summative assessment. Through the identification of rapid-guessing behavior -- which is a validated indicator of disengagement -- the percentage of Grade 8 test events with meaningful amounts of rapid guessing was 5.5% in mathematics, 6.7% in…

Waterbury, Glenn Thomas; DeMars, Christine E. – Educational Assessment, 2021
Vertical scaling is used to put tests of different difficulty onto a common metric. The Rasch model is often used to perform vertical scaling, despite its strict functional form. Few, if any, studies have examined anchor item choice when using the Rasch model to vertically scale data that do not fit the model. The purpose of this study was to…
