Spratto, Elisabeth M.; Leventhal, Brian C.; Bandalos, Deborah L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2021
In this study, we examined the results and interpretations produced from two different IRTree models--one using paths consisting of only dichotomous decisions, and one using paths consisting of both dichotomous and polytomous decisions. We used data from two versions of an impulsivity measure. In the first version, all the response options had…

DeMars, Christine E. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2019
Previous work showing that revised parallel analysis can be effective with dichotomous items has used a two-parameter model and normally distributed abilities. In this study, both two- and three-parameter models were used with normally distributed and skewed ability distributions. Relatively minor skew and kurtosis in the underlying ability…

Clauser, Jerome C.; Hambleton, Ronald K.; Baldwin, Peter – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2017
The Angoff standard setting method relies on content experts to review exam items and make judgments about the performance of the minimally proficient examinee. Unfortunately, at times content experts may have gaps in their understanding of specific exam content. These gaps are particularly likely to occur when the content domain is broad and/or…

Hauser, Carl; Thum, Yeow Meng; He, Wei; Ma, Lingling – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2015
When conducting item reviews, analysts evaluate an array of statistical and graphical information to assess the fit of a field test (FT) item to an item response theory model. The process can be tedious, particularly when the number of human reviews (HR) to be completed is large. Furthermore, such a process leads to decisions that are susceptible…

Liu, Yan; Zumbo, Bruno D. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2012
There is a lack of research on the effects of outliers on the decisions about the number of factors to retain in an exploratory factor analysis, especially for outliers arising from unintended and unknowingly included subpopulations. The purpose of the present research was to investigate how outliers from an unintended and unknowingly included…

Curseu, Petru Lucian; Schruijer, Sandra G. L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2012
This study investigates the relationship between the five decision-making styles evaluated by the General Decision-Making Style Inventory, indecisiveness, and rationality in decision making. Using a sample of 102 middle-level managers, the results show that the rational style positively predicts rationality in decision making and negatively…

Smith, Jr., Everett V.; Kulikowich, Jonna M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2004
This study describes the use of generalizability theory (GT) and many-facet Rasch measurement (MFRM) to evaluate psychometric properties of responses obtained from an assessment designed to measure complex problem-solving skills. The assessment revolved around the school activity of kickball. The task required of each student was to decide on a…

Arce-Ferrer, Alvaro J.; Ketterer, John J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2002
Findings for high school students in Mexico (n=3,153 and n=400) administered a career decision making self-efficacy scale show that tailoring the scale with the best etic and emic items neither improved recovery of the factor-structure nor reduced the effects of the extreme-response style variable.

Wilcox, Rand R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1981
The paper considers the problem of selecting the t best of k normal populations and simultaneously determining whether the selected populations have a mean larger than a known standard. Illustrations are given for selecting the t best of k examinees when the binomial error model applies. (Author)

Petersen, Calvin R.; Thain, John W. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1976
Relative to test and criterion parameters and cutting scores, the correlation coefficient, sample size, and number of samples to be drawn (all inputs), this program calculates decision classification rates across samples and for combined samples. Several other related indices are also computed. (Author)

De Corte, Wilfried – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1998
An analytic procedure is presented that estimates the expected benefits of personnel classification decisions for which it is assumed that the available criterion estimates are both equi-correlated and equally valid, with equal quotas for the jobs, and the equal importance of all jobs. The numerical method developed for the estimation is…

Goldstein, Zvi; Marcoulides, George A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1991
An efficient search procedure is presented for determining the optimal number of observations of facets in a design that maximize generalizability when resource constraints are imposed. The procedure is illustrated for three-facet and four-facet designs, with extensions for other configurations. (Author/SLD)

DeCasper, Helen S.; Tittle, Carol Kehr – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1988
Analysis of the factor structure of rankings and ratings of three sets of values illustrates how counselors use them in working with adolescents. Data were analyzed from 600 interviews with eleventh graders. The analyses of gender-related differences give counselors perspectives from which to explore the values students consider important in…
