Johnson, Evelyn S.; Crawford, Angela R.; Zheng, Yuzhu; Moylan, Laura A. – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2021
In this study, we compared the results of 27 special education teachers' evaluations using two different observation instruments, the Framework for Teaching (FFT), and the Explicit Instruction observation protocol of the Recognizing Effective Special Education Teachers (RESET) observation system. Results indicate differences in the rank-ordering…

Zhan, Peida – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2021
Refined tracking allows students and teachers to more accurately understand students' learning growth. To provide refined learning tracking with longitudinal diagnostic assessment, this article proposed a new model by incorporating probabilistic logic into longitudinal diagnostic modeling. Specifically, probabilistic attributes were used instead…

Coggeshall, Whitney Smiley – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2021
The continuous testing framework, where both successful and unsuccessful examinees have to demonstrate continued proficiency at frequent prespecified intervals, is a framework that is used in noncognitive assessment and is gaining in popularity in cognitive assessment. Despite the rigorous advantages of this framework, this paper demonstrates that…

Sireci, Stephen G. – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2021
The community of educational measurement researchers and practitioners has made many positive contributions to education, but has also become complacent and lost the public trust. In this article, reasons for the lack of public trust in educational testing are described, and core values for educational measurement are proposed. Reasons for…

Sinharay, Sandip – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2021
Technical difficulties occasionally lead to missing item scores and hence to incomplete data on computerized tests. It is not straightforward to report scores to the examinees whose data are incomplete due to technical difficulties. Such reporting essentially involves imputation of missing scores. In this paper, a simulation study based on data…

König, Christoph; Khorramdel, Lale; Yamamoto, Kentaro; Frey, Andreas – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2021
Large-scale assessments such as the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) have field trials where new survey features are tested for utility in the main survey. Because of resource constraints, there is a trade-off between how much of the sample can be used to test new survey features and how much can be used for the initial item…

Ing, Marsha; Chinen, Starlie; Jackson, Kara; Smith, Thomas M. – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2021
Despite the ease of accessing a wide range of measures, little attention is given to validity arguments when considering whether to use the measure for a new purpose or in a different context. Making a validity argument has historically focused on the intended interpretation and use. There has been a press to consider both the intended and actual…

Randall, Jennifer; Rios, Joseph A.; Jung, Hyun Joo – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2021
For nearly three decades, researchers have been concerned that the educational measurement field is not producing enough graduate-level specialists to meet the growing demand driven by the increased use of educational assessments in the United States. This study examined the supply-side aspect of the proposed labor shortage by relying on data from…

Rios, Joseph A.; Miranda, Alejandra A. – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2021
Subscore added value analyses assume invariance across test taking populations; however, this assumption may be untenable in practice as differential subdomain relationships may be present among subgroups. The purpose of this simulation study was to understand the conditions associated with subscore added value noninvariance when manipulating: (1)…

Feinberg, Richard A. – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2021
Unforeseen complications during the administration of large-scale testing programs are inevitable and can prevent examinees from accessing all test material. For classification tests in which the primary purpose is to yield a decision, such as a pass/fail result, the current study investigated a model-based standard error approach, Bayesian…

Almusharraf, Norah; Alotaibi, Hind – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2021
Committing errors is expected in the development of language acquisition and learning; however, there is limited research that contributes to the literature on the effect of gender of English as a foreign language (EFL) writing. This study explored the gender differences in EFL students' writing using two approaches: human evaluation and…

Joo, Seang-Hwane; Khorramdel, Lale; Yamamoto, Kentaro; Shin, Hyo Jeong; Robin, Frederic – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2021
In Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), item response theory (IRT) scaling is used to examine the psychometric properties of items and scales and to provide comparable test scores across participating countries and over time. To balance the comparability of IRT item parameter estimations across countries with the best possible…

Burkhardt, Amy; Lottridge, Susan; Woolf, Sherri – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2021
For some students, standardized tests serve as a conduit to disclose sensitive issues of harm or distress that may otherwise go unreported. By detecting this writing, known as "crisis papers," testing programs have a unique opportunity to assist in mitigating the risk of harm to these students. The use of machine learning to…

Baldwin, Peter – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2021
In the Bookmark standard-setting procedure, panelists are instructed to consider what examinees know rather than what they might attain by guessing; however, because examinees sometimes do guess, the procedure includes a correction for guessing. Like other corrections for guessing, the Bookmark's correction assumes that examinees either know the…

Baron, Patricia; Sireci, Stephen G.; Slater, Sharon C. – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2021
Since the No Child Left Behind Act (No Child Left Behind [NCLB], 2001) was enacted, the Bookmark method has been used in many state standard setting studies (Karantonis and Sireci; Zieky, Perie, and Livingston). The purpose of the current study is to evaluate the criticism that when panelists are presented with data during the Bookmark standard…
