Agley, Jon; Tidd, David; Jun, Mikyoung; Eldridge, Lori; Xiao, Yunyu; Sussman, Steve; Jayawardene, Wasantha; Agley, Daniel; Gassman, Ruth; Dickinson, Stephanie L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2021
Prospective longitudinal data collection is an important way for researchers and evaluators to assess change. In school-based settings, for low-risk and/or likely-beneficial interventions or surveys, data quality and ethical standards are both arguably stronger when using a waiver of parental consent--but doing so often requires the use of…

McGrath, Kathleen V.; Leighton, Elizabeth A.; Ene, Mihaela; DiStefano, Christine; Monrad, Diane M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2020
Survey research frequently involves the collection of data from multiple informants. Results, however, are usually analyzed by informant group, potentially ignoring important relationships across groups. When the same construct(s) are measured, integrative data analysis (IDA) allows pooling of data from multiple sources into one data set to…

Huang, Hung-Yu – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2020
In educational assessments and achievement tests, test developers and administrators commonly assume that test-takers attempt all test items with full effort and leave no blank responses with unplanned missing values. However, aberrant response behavior--such as performance decline, dropping out beyond a certain point, and skipping certain items…

Liu, Yuan; Hau, Kit-Tai – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2020
In large-scale low-stake assessment such as the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), students may skip items (missingness) which are within their ability to complete. The detection and taking care of these noneffortful responses, as a measure of test-taking motivation, is an important issue in modern psychometric models.…

Cao, Chunhua; Kim, Eun Sook; Chen, Yi-Hsin; Ferron, John; Stark, Stephen – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2019
In multilevel multiple-indicator multiple-cause (MIMIC) models, covariates can interact at the within level, at the between level, or across levels. This study examines the performance of multilevel MIMIC models in estimating and detecting the interaction effect of two covariates through a simulation and provides an empirical demonstration of…

Walters, Glenn D.; Espelage, Dorothy L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2019
The purpose of this study was to investigate the latent structure type (categorical vs. dimensional) of bullying perpetration in a large sample of middle school students. A nine-item bullying scale was administered to 1,222 (625 boys, 597 girls) early adolescents enrolled in middle schools in a Midwestern state. Based on the results of a principal…

Briggs, Derek C.; Alzen, Jessica L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2019
Observation protocol scores are commonly used as status measures to support inferences about teacher practices. When multiple observations are collected for the same teacher over the course of a year, some portion of a teacher's score on each occasion may be attributable to the rater, lesson, and the time of year of the observation. All three of…

Sachse, Karoline A.; Mahler, Nicole; Pohl, Steffi – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2019
Mechanisms causing item nonresponses in large-scale assessments are often said to be nonignorable. Parameter estimates can be biased if nonignorable missing data mechanisms are not adequately modeled. In trend analyses, it is plausible for the missing data mechanism and the percentage of missing values to change over time. In this article, we…

Fu, Yuanshu; Wen, Zhonglin; Wang, Yang – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2018
The maximal reliability of a congeneric measure is achieved by weighting item scores to form the optimal linear combination as the total score; it is never lower than the composite reliability of the measure when measurement errors are uncorrelated. The statistical method that renders maximal reliability would also lead to maximal criterion…

Kim, Eun Sook; Wang, Yan; Kiefer, Sarah M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2018
Studies comparing groups that are at different levels of multilevel data (namely, cross-level groups) using the same measure are not unusual such as student and teacher agreement in education or congruence between patient and physician perceptions in health research. Although establishing measurement invariance (MI) between these groups is…

Sideridis, Georgios; Tsaousis, Ioannis; Al Harbi, Khaleel – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2017
The purpose of the present article was to illustrate, using an example from a national assessment, the value from analyzing the behavior of distractors in measures that engage the multiple-choice format. A secondary purpose of the present article was to illustrate four remedial actions that can potentially improve the measurement of the…

Lockwood, J. R.; Castellano, Katherine E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2017
Student Growth Percentiles (SGPs) increasingly are being used in the United States for inferences about student achievement growth and educator effectiveness. Emerging research has indicated that SGPs estimated from observed test scores have large measurement errors. As such, little is known about "true" SGPs, which are defined in terms…

Sideridis, Georgios D. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2016
The purpose of the present studies was to test the hypothesis that the psychometric characteristics of ability scales may be significantly distorted if one accounts for emotional factors during test taking. Specifically, the present studies evaluate the effects of anxiety and motivation on the item difficulties of the Rasch model. In Study 1, the…

Huang, Francis L.; Cornell, Dewey G. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2016
Bullying among youth is recognized as a serious student problem, especially in middle school. The most common approach to measuring bullying is through student self-report surveys that ask questions about different types of bullying victimization. Although prior studies have shown that question-order effects may influence participant responses, no…

Cheng, Ying; Shao, Can; Lathrop, Quinn N. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2016
Due to its flexibility, the multiple-indicator, multiple-causes (MIMIC) model has become an increasingly popular method for the detection of differential item functioning (DIF). In this article, we propose the mediated MIMIC model method to uncover the underlying mechanism of DIF. This method extends the usual MIMIC model by including one variable…
