Tay, Louis; Huang, Qiming; Vermunt, Jeroen K. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2016
In large-scale testing, the use of multigroup approaches is limited for assessing differential item functioning (DIF) across multiple variables as DIF is examined for each variable separately. In contrast, the item response theory with covariate (IRT-C) procedure can be used to examine DIF across multiple variables (covariates) simultaneously. To…

Wiley, Edward W.; Shavelson, Richard J.; Kurpius, Amy A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2014
The name "SAT" has become synonymous with college admissions testing; it has been dubbed "the gold standard." Numerous studies on its reliability and predictive validity show that the SAT predicts college performance beyond high school grade point average. Surprisingly, studies of the factorial structure of the current version…

Wolkowitz, Amanda A.; Skorupski, William P. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2013
When missing values are present in item response data, there are a number of ways one might impute a correct or incorrect response to a multiple-choice item. There are significantly fewer methods for imputing the actual response option an examinee may have provided if he or she had not omitted the item either purposely or accidentally. This…

Shaw, Emily J.; Marini, Jessica P.; Mattern, Krista D. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2013
The current study evaluated the relationship between various operationalizations of the Advanced Placement[R] (AP) exam and course information with first-year grade point average (FYGPA) in college to better understand the role of AP in college admission decisions. In particular, the incremental validity of the different AP variables, above…

Davison, Mark L.; Semmes, Robert; Huang, Lan; Close, Catherine N. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2012
Data from 181 college students were used to assess whether math reasoning item response times in computerized testing can provide valid and reliable measures of a speed dimension. The alternate forms reliability of the speed dimension was .85. A two-dimensional structural equation model suggests that the speed dimension is related to the accuracy…

Kobrin, Jennifer L.; Kim, YoungKoung; Sackett, Paul R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2012
There is much debate on the merits and pitfalls of standardized tests for college admission, with questions regarding the format (multiple-choice vs. constructed response), cognitive complexity, and content of these assessments (achievement vs. aptitude) at the forefront of the discussion. This study addressed these questions by investigating the…

Santelices, Maria Veronica; Wilson, Mark – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2012
The relationship between differential item functioning (DIF) and item difficulty on the SAT is such that more difficult items tended to exhibit DIF in favor of the focal group (usually minority groups). These results were reported by Kulick and Hu, and Freedle and have been enthusiastically discussed by more recent literature. Examining the…

Liu, Jinghua; Sinharay, Sandip; Holland, Paul; Feigenbaum, Miriam; Curley, Edward – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2011
Two different types of anchors are investigated in this study: a mini-version anchor and an anchor that has a less spread of difficulty than the tests to be equated. The latter is referred to as a midi anchor. The impact of these two different types of anchors on observed score equating are evaluated and compared with respect to systematic error…

Mattern, Krista D.; Shaw, Emily J.; Kobrin, Jennifer L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2011
This study examined discrepant high school grade point average (HSGPA) and SAT performance as measured by the difference between a student's standardized SAT composite score and standardized HSGPA. The SAT-HSGPA discrepancy measure was used to examine whether certain students are more likely to exhibit discrepant performance and in what direction.…

Goldman, Roy D.; Widawski, Mel H. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1976
Results support the application of adaptation level theory to college grading standards, for it was found that at the institution student fields with lower ability students as compared with those with higher ability students employed less stringent grading criteria. (Author/RC)
