Thomas, Michael L.; Brown, Gregory G.; Patt, Virginie M.; Duffy, John R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2021
The adaptation of experimental cognitive tasks into measures that can be used to quantify neurocognitive outcomes in translational studies and clinical trials has become a key component of the strategy to address psychiatric and neurological disorders. Unfortunately, while most experimental cognitive tests have strong theoretical bases, they can…

Dowling, N. Maritza; Raykov, Tenko; Marcoulides, George A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2020
Equating of psychometric scales and tests is frequently required and conducted in educational, behavioral, and clinical research. Construct comparability or equivalence between measuring instruments is a necessary condition for making decisions about linking and equating resulting scores. This article is concerned with a widely applicable method…

Lin, Chuan-Ju; Chang, Hua-Hua – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2019
For item selection in cognitive diagnostic computerized adaptive testing (CD-CAT), ideally, a single item selection index should be created to simultaneously regulate precision, exposure status, and attribute balancing. For this purpose, in this study, we first proposed an attribute-balanced item selection criterion, namely, the standardized…

Johnson, Wendy; Deary, Ian J.; Bouchard, Thomas J., Jr. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2018
Most study samples show less variability in key variables than do their source populations due most often to indirect selection into study participation associated with a wide range of personal and circumstantial characteristics. Formulas exist to correct the distortions of population-level correlations created. Formula accuracy has been tested…

Marcoulides, Katerina M.; Grimm, Kevin J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2017
Synthesizing results from multiple studies is a daunting task during which researchers must tackle a variety of challenges. The task is even more demanding when studying developmental processes longitudinally and when different instruments are used to measure constructs. Data integration methodology is an emerging field that enables researchers to…

McArdle, John J.; Hamagami, Fumiaki; Bautista, Randy; Onoye, Jane; Hishinuma, Earl S.; Prescott, Carol A.; Takeshita, Junji; Zonderman, Alan B.; Johnson, Ronald C. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2014
In this study, we reanalyzed the classic Hawai'i Family Study of Cognition (HFSC) data using contemporary multilevel modeling techniques. We used the HFSC baseline data ("N" = 6,579) and reexamined the factorial structure of 16 cognitive variables using confirmatory (restricted) measurement models in an explicit sequence. These models…

Wang, Chun – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2013
Cognitive diagnostic computerized adaptive testing (CD-CAT) purports to combine the strengths of both CAT and cognitive diagnosis. Cognitive diagnosis models aim at classifying examinees into the correct mastery profile group so as to pinpoint the strengths and weakness of each examinee whereas CAT algorithms choose items to determine those…

Cheng, Ying – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
This article proposes a new item selection method, namely, the modified maximum global discrimination index (MMGDI) method, for cognitive diagnostic computerized adaptive testing (CD-CAT). The new method captures two aspects of the appeal of an item: (a) the amount of contribution it can make toward adequate coverage of every attribute and (b) the…

Marshall, Seth J.; Wodrich, David L.; Gorin, Joanna S. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2009
This study examined psychometric properties of the Tempe Sorting Task (TST), a new measure of executive function (EF) for children. To increase the meaningfulness of test score interpretations, an age-appropriate construct was employed to incorporate Denckla's description of EF. Multiple measures of EF, including the TST, were collected for…

Scherbaum, Charles A.; Goldstein, Harold W. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2008
Recent research examining racial differences on standardized cognitive tests has focused on the impact of test item difficulty. Studies using data from the SAT and GRE have reported a correlation between item difficulty and differential item functioning (DIF) such that minority test takers are less likely than majority test takers to respond…

Peeters, Helga; Lievens, Filip – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2005
There is increasing interest in using situational judgment tests (SJTs) to supplement traditional student admission procedures. An important unexplored issue is whether students can intentionally distort or fake their responses on SJTs. This study examined the fakability of an SJT of college students' performance. Two hundred ninety-three…

Taylor, C. Leigh; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1976
Thirty-six cognitive, affective and demographic variables in addition to two measures of musical experience were used to predict algebra and geometry grades and teacher ratings of student math aptitude for three hundred high school students. Cognitive measures were the best predictors although some affective variables made significant…

Hakstian, A. Ralph; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1987
Cognitive ability tests, personality inventories, and administrative- skills measures were administered to 238 telephone company employees. A small number of interpretively and predictively useful molar personal/motivational scales were derived using factor analysis. Some measures from each of the domains of the assessment battery were found to be…

Bannon, Susan H.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1985
Cognitive and affective scales for assessing computer attitudes were administered to 2,525 students and educators. Results supported test validity and reliability. Generally positive cognitive attitudes were found, as well as a rejection of negative affective attitudes. (The 14 items are included) (GDC)
