Hasan Aykut Karaboga; Ibrahim Demir – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2023
Bayesian Networks (BNs) are probabilistic graphical statistical models that have been widely used in many fields over the last decade. This method, which can also be used for educational data mining (EDM) purposes, is a fairly new method in education literature. This study models students' science success using the BN approach. Science is one of…

Qiwei He – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2023
Collaborative problem solving (CPS) is inherently an interactive, conjoint, dual-strand process that considers how a student reasons about a problem as well as how s/he interacts with others to regulate social processes and exchange information (OECD, 2013). Measuring CPS skills presents a challenge for obtaining consistent, accurate, and reliable…

Saaatcioglu, Fatima Munevver – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2022
The aim of this study is to investigate the presence of DIF over the gender variable with the latent class modeling approach. The data were collected from 953 students who participated in the PISA 2018 8th-grade financial literacy assessment in the USA. Latent Class Analysis (LCA) approach was used to identify the latent classes, and the data fit…

Bulut, Hatice Cigdem – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2021
Several studies have been published on disengaged test respondents, and others have analyzed disengaged survey respondents separately. For many large-scale assessments, students answer questionnaire and test items in succession. This study examines the percentage of students who continuously engage in disengaged responding behaviors across…

Ayan, Cansu; Baris Pekmezci, Fulya – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2021
Testlets have advantages such as making it possible to measure higher-order thinking skills and saving time, which are accepted in the literature. For this reason, they have often been preferred in many implementations from in-class assessments to large-scale assessments. Because of increased usage of testlets, the following questions are…

Sirganci, Gozde; Uyumaz, Gizem; Yandi, Alperen – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2020
It is necessary to examine the measurement invariance (MI) among groups in studies where different groups are compared by using a measurement instrument. Most of the studies, measurement invariance is tested with multiple group confirmatory factor analysis. This model applies many model adjustments based on the modification indexes. Therefore, it…

Yavuz, Emine; Atar, Hakan Yavuz – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2020
Technological advancements initially made it possible for individuals with different cultures from different parts of the world to consider working together, and eventually collaboration turned into a necessity. Based on this necessity, OECD measured collaborative problem-solving (CPS) competencies of 15-year-old students from the countries…

Karadavut, Tugba; Cohen, Allan S.; Kim, Seock-Ho – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2019
Covariates have been used in mixture IRT models to help explain why examinees are classed into different latent classes. Previous research has considered manifest variables as covariates in a mixture Rasch analysis for prediction of group membership. Latent covariates, however, are more likely to have higher correlations with the latent class…
