Marland, Joshua; Harrick, Matthew; Sireci, Stephen G. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2020
Student assessment nonparticipation (or opt out) has increased substantially in K-12 schools in states across the country. This increase in opt out has the potential to impact achievement and growth (or value-added) measures used for educator and institutional accountability. In this simulation study, we investigated the extent to which…

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…

Ing, Marsha – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2018
In instructional sensitivity research, it is important to evaluate the validity argument about the extent to which student performance on the assessment can be used to infer differences in instructional experiences. This study examines whether three different measures of mathematics instruction consistently identify mathematics assessments as…

Williams, Ryan T.; Swanlund, Andrew; Miller, Shazia; Konstantopoulos, Spyros; Eno, Jared; van der Ploeg, Arie; Meyers, Coby – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2014
This study operationalizes four measures of instructional differentiation: one for Grade 2 English language arts (ELA), one for Grade 2 mathematics, one for Grade 5 ELA, and one for Grade 5 mathematics. Our study evaluates their measurement properties of each measure in a large field experiment: the Indiana Diagnostic Assessment Tools Study, which…

Hedges, Larry V.; Hedberg, E. C.; Kuyper, Arend M. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2012
Intraclass correlations are used to summarize the variance decomposition in populations with multilevel hierarchical structure. There has recently been considerable interest in estimating intraclass correlations from surveys or designed experiments to provide design parameters for planning future large-scale randomized experiments. The large…

Skaggs, Gary; Hein, Serge F. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2011
Judgmental standard setting methods have been criticized for the cognitive complexity of the judgment task that panelists are asked to complete. This study compared two methods designed to reduce this complexity: the yes/no method and the single-passage bookmark method. Two mock standard setting panel meetings were convened, one for each method,…

Palardy, Gregory J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
This article examines the multilevel linear crossed random effects growth model for estimating teacher and school effects from repeated measurements of student achievement. Results suggest that even a small degree of unmodeled nonlinearity can result in a substantial upward bias in the magnitude of the teacher effect, which raises concerns about…

DiStefano, Christine; Kamphaus, R. W. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2006
Two classification methods, latent class cluster analysis and cluster analysis, are used to identify groups of child behavioral adjustment underlying a sample of elementary school children aged 6 to 11 years. Behavioral rating information across 14 subscales was obtained from classroom teachers and used as input for analyses. Both the procedures…

Woolley, Sandra L.; Benjamin, Woan-Jue J.; Woolley, Anita Williams – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2004
The development and validation of the Teacher Beliefs Survey (TBS) is described. The TBS, an instrument for assessing the beliefs of teachers related to constructivist and traditional approaches to teaching and learning, contains 21 items in three hypothetical constructs. Elementary teachers, preservice (n = 61) and in-service (n = 137),…

Oanh, Nguyen Thi; Michael, William B. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1977
Ten self concept measures and two achievement tests were examined for fourth and sixth grade Mexican-Americans, Caucasians, Blacks, Vietnamese, other Asian, and pupils of mixed ethnicity. Pupil self-update of self concept revealed negligible relationships with teacher ratings of achievement, although teacher observations of pupil self concept…

Stedman, Mark E.; Breen, Michael J. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1977
First grade teacher interests in four subject areas as measured by the Strong Vocational Interest Blank were compared to their students' interests in those areas as measured by the Survey of School Attitudes. A relationship was found only in the natural science subject area. (JKS)

Crowther, Henry I. G.; Preece, Peter F. W. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1979
Instruments were developed to measure the confidence and self-image of preservice elementary school teachers in relation to both biology and physical science. High reliability and convergent and discriminant validity were displayed by the instruments, both in the initial test development stage and in subsequent confirmatory studies. (Author)

Rayfield, Arista; Eyberg, Sheila M.; Foote, Rebecca – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1998
A revision of the Sutter-Eyberg Student Behavior Inventory (S. Eyberg and D. Pincus, in press), a teacher rating scale of conduct behavior problems at school, was completed by 38 teachers for 726 students in grades 5 through 12. Item analyses led to retention of 10 of the 17 experimental test items and deletion of 8 original items. (SLD)

Maag, John W.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1995
The social status of fifth and sixth graders was determined using the peer nomination method and ratings by teachers. Out of 143 students, 16 were classified as popular, 17 as rejected, and 62 as average. A combination of social behavior and demographic variables accurately classified social status. (SLD)

Silvernail, David L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1992
The self-report Educational Beliefs Questionnaire (EBQ) was constructed, and its construct validity was studied with 610 elementary school and secondary school teachers. The instrument assesses beliefs about five specific educational concepts. Further research will determine whether the 3-factor model still applies to a 20-item version of the EBQ.…
