Andersson, Gustaf; Yang-Wallentin, Fan – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2021
Factor score regression has recently received growing interest as an alternative for structural equation modeling. However, many applications are left without guidance because of the focus on normally distributed outcomes in the literature. We perform a simulation study to examine how a selection of factor scoring methods compare when estimating…

Jiao, Hong; Liu, Junhui; Haynie, Kathleen; Woo, Ada; Gorham, Jerry – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2012
This study explored the impact of partial credit scoring of one type of innovative items (multiple-response items) in a computerized adaptive version of a large-scale licensure pretest and operational test settings. The impacts of partial credit scoring on the estimation of the ability parameters and classification decisions in operational test…

Brown, Allison R.; Finney, Sara J.; France, Megan K. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2011
The Hong Psychological Reactance Scale (HPRS) purports to measure reactance: a motivational state experienced when a behavioral freedom is threatened with elimination. To date, five studies have examined the psychometric properties of the HPRS, but reached different conclusions regarding its factor structure. The current study further investigated…

Vaughn, Brandon K.; Wang, Qiu – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2010
A nonparametric tree classification procedure is used to detect differential item functioning for items that are dichotomously scored. Classification trees are shown to be an alternative procedure to detect differential item functioning other than the use of traditional Mantel-Haenszel and logistic regression analysis. A nonparametric…

Cervellione, Kelly L.; Lee, Young-Sun; Bonanno, George A. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2009
Self-deception has become a construct of great interest in individual differences research because it has been associated with levels of resilience and mental health. The Balanced Inventory of Desirable Responding (BIDR) is a self-report measure used for quantifying self-deception. In this study we used Rasch modeling to examine the properties of…

Finkelman, Matthew; Darby, Mark; Nering, Michael – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2009
Many tests classify each examinee into one of multiple performance levels on the basis of a combination of multiple-choice (MC) and constructed-response (CR) items. This study introduces a two-stage scoring method that identifies examinees whose MC scores place them near a cut point, advising scorers on which examinees will be most affected by…

Tsai, Fu-Ju; Suen, Hoi K. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1993
Six methods of scoring multiple true-false items were compared in terms of reliabilities, difficulties, and discrimination. Results suggest that, for norm-referenced score interpretations, there is insufficient evidence to support any one of the methods as superior. For criterion-referenced score interpretations, effects of scoring method must be…

Rentsch, Joan R.; Heffner, Tonia S. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1992
A new scoring method for "Who Am I?" responses as a measure of self-esteem is validated and used to test the relationship between self-esteem and psychological centrality for 240 college students. The usefulness of the new scoring technique as a measure of centrality and self-esteem is discussed. (SLD)

Kuder, Frederic; Diamond, Esther E.; Zytowski, Donald G. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1998
Predictive validity, generally taken to be the prime validity that occupationally normed interest inventories should demonstrate, is dependent on the capacity of an instrument to differentiate between occupations. A comparison of two methods of differentiation shows that a method using proportions of each occupational group to assign item-scoring…

Pomplun, Mark; Omar, Md Hafidz – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1997
Four threats to validity of an alternative objective test item format, the multiple-mark format, were studied with data from a state-mandated assessment with about 30,000 students at each of three grade levels. Reliability and validity coefficients show that the format has promise as an objective format that can be aligned with new curriculum…

Plake, Barbara S.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1997
The dominant profile judgment method, designed for use with profiles of polytomous scores on exercises in a performance-based assessment, is presented as a standard-setting method. The approach guides standard-setting panelists in articulating their standard-setting policies and allows for complex policy statements. (SLD)

Brennan, Robert L.; Lee, Won-Chan – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1999
Develops two procedures for estimating individual-level conditional standard errors of measurement for scale scores, assuming tests of dichotomously scored items. Compares the two procedures to a polynomial procedure and a procedure developed by L. Feldt and A. Qualls (1998) using data from the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills. Contains 22 references.…

Rogers, W. Todd; Ndalichako, Joyce – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2000
Determined the robustness of several types of scoring (number-right; one-, two-, and three-parameter item response; finite-state, and partial-credit) with respect to the violation of the equally classifiable options and option independence made in finite-state scoring using analysis of test responses of 1,232 high school seniors.

Wang, Jianjun – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1993
Test misgrading is treated as a stochastic process. The expected number of misgradings, inter-occurrence time of misgradings, and waiting time for the "n"th misgrading are discussed based on a simple Poisson model and a hierarchical Beta-Poisson model. Examples of model construction are given. (SLD)

Lunz, Mary E.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1994
In a study involving eight judges, analysis with the FACETS model provides evidence that judges grade differently, whether or not scores correlate well. This outcome suggests that adjustments for differences among judges should be made before student measures are estimated to produce reproducible decisions. (SLD)
