Huang, Francis L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2018
Cluster randomized trials involving participants nested within intact treatment and control groups are commonly performed in various educational, psychological, and biomedical studies. However, recruiting and retaining intact groups present various practical, financial, and logistical challenges to evaluators and often, cluster randomized trials…

Padilla, Miguel A.; Divers, Jasmin – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2016
Coefficient omega and alpha are both measures of the composite reliability for a set of items. Unlike coefficient alpha, coefficient omega remains unbiased with congeneric items with uncorrelated errors. Despite this ability, coefficient omega is not as widely used and cited in the literature as coefficient alpha. Reasons for coefficient omega's…

Patton, Jeffrey M.; Cheng, Ying; Yuan, Ke-Hai; Diao, Qi – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2014
When item parameter estimates are used to estimate the ability parameter in item response models, the standard error (SE) of the ability estimate must be corrected to reflect the error carried over from item calibration. For maximum likelihood (ML) ability estimates, a corrected asymptotic SE is available, but it requires a long test and the…

Chen, Pei-Hua; Chang, Hua-Hua; Wu, Haiyan – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2012
Two sampling-and-classification-based procedures were developed for automated test assembly: the Cell Only and the Cell and Cube methods. A simulation study based on a 540-item bank was conducted to compare the performance of the procedures with the performance of a mixed-integer programming (MIP) method for assembling multiple parallel test…

Finch, W. Holmes; French, Brian F. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2012
Effect size use has been increasing in the past decade in many research areas. Confidence intervals associated with effect sizes are encouraged to be reported. Prior work has investigated the performance of confidence interval estimation with Cohen's d. This study extends this line of work to the analysis of variance case with more than two…

Pedulla, Joseph J.; Airasian, Peter W. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1980
Estimates of population values obtained using three sampling techniques (simple random sampling, stratified random sampling, and cluster sampling) and three size samples for each technique (10%, 25% and 50%) were compared with known "population" values. 25% simple random sample provided quite good estimates of the "population"…
