Feinberg, Richard A.; Morrison, Carol; Raymond, Mark R. – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2022
Formal graduate education in a measurement related field provides a solid foundation for professionals who work on credentialing examinations. Those foundational skills are then expanded and refined over time as practitioners encounter complex and nuanced challenges that were not covered by or go beyond the context described in textbooks. For…

Lewis, Jennifer; Lim, Hwanggyu; Padellaro, Frank; Sireci, Stephen G.; Zenisky, April L. – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2022
Setting cut scores on (MSTs) is difficult, particularly when the test spans several grade levels, and the selection of items from MST panels must reflect the operational test specifications. In this study, we describe, illustrate, and evaluate three methods for mapping panelists' Angoff ratings into cut scores on the scale underlying an MST. The…

Li, Dongmei; Kapoor, Shalini – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2022
Population invariance is a desirable property of test equating which might not hold when significant changes occur in the test population, such as those brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. This research aims to investigate whether equating functions are reasonably invariant when the test population is impacted by the pandemic. Based on…

Liu, Ou Lydia; Roohr, Katrina Crotts; Seybert, Jacob M.; Fishtein, Daniel – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2022
Critical thinking has become an essential skill required by both higher education and the workforce. Research to date has reported moderate cross-sectional learning differences in critical thinking as students progress through a 4-year college. However, retention, differential participation, and students' low test-taking motivation possibly…

Pan, Qianqian; Reichert, Frank; de la Torre, Jimmy; Law, Nancy – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2022
Hong Kong was one of the first places hit with the COVID-19 outbreak in January 2020 and has since responded with several periods of full or partial school suspension, during which teaching and learning often occurred remotely using digital means. During this time, collecting research data and testing students have become more difficult than…

Bennett, Randy E. – Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, 2022
This commentary focuses on one of the positive impacts of COVID-19, which was to tie societal inequity to testing in a manner that could motivate the reimagining of our field. That reimagining needs to account for our nation's dramatically changing demographics so that assessment generally, and standardized testing specifically, better fit the…
