Fatih Orcan – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2023
Among all, Cronbach's Alpha and McDonald's Omega are commonly used for reliability estimations. The alpha uses inter-item correlations while omega is based on a factor analysis result. This study uses simulated ordinal data sets to test whether the alpha and omega produce different estimates. Their performances were compared according to the…

Albayrakoglu, Ozlem; Yildirim, Selda – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2022
While numerous studies have reported the effect of school socioeconomic status (SES) on achievement, the factors that can cause this relationship are not well established. This study is, therefore, an attempt to understand school SES and students' mathematics achievement relationship by assuming that this relationship occurs through a correlation…

Celen, Umit; Aybek, Eren Can – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2022
Item analysis is performed by developers as an integral part of the scale development process. Thus, items are excluded from the scale depending on the item analysis prior to the factor analysis. Existing item discrimination indices are calculated based on correlation, yet items with different response patterns are likely to have a similar item…

Saatcioglu, Fatima Munevver; Atar, Hakan Yavuz – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2022
This study aims to examine the effects of mixture item response theory (IRT) models on item parameter estimation and classification accuracy under different conditions. The manipulated variables of the simulation study are set as mixture IRT models (Rasch, 2PL, 3PL); sample size (600, 1000); the number of items (10, 30); the number of latent…

Özdogan, Didem; Kelecioglu, Hülya – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2022
This study aims to analyze the differential bundle functioning in multidimensional tests with a specific purpose to detect this effect through differentiating the location of the item with DIF in the test, the correlation between the dimensions, the sample size, and the ratio of reference to focal group size. The first 10 items of the test that is…

Dilek, Harun; Akbas, Ufuk – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2022
The purpose of this study is to develop Education Value Perception Scale (EVPS) based on Bronfenbrenner's Ecological Theory and to investigate its psychometric properties according to Classical Test Theory (CTT) and Item Response Theory (IRT). The data were collected from 2872 secondary school students by stratified purposeful sampling method.…

Akgun, Ergun; Mede, Enisa; Sarac, Seda – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2022
This study aims to examine the relations and associations between gender, epistemic curiosity (EC), self-regulated learning (SRL), and attitudes toward e-learning in higher education students. The participants were 2438 (862 males, 1576 females) undergraduate students enrolled in a Turkish university. The regression analysis findings showed that…

Kilic, Abdullah Faruk; Uysal, Ibrahim – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2022
Most researchers investigate the corrected item-total correlation of items when analyzing item discrimination in multi-dimensional structures under the Classical Test Theory, which might lead to underestimating item discrimination, thereby removing items from the test. Researchers might investigate the corrected item-total correlation with the…

Tosun, Duygu; Arikan, Serkan; Babur, Nalan – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2021
Teachers have an important role in the achievement progress of students with dyslexia. Therefore, measuring teachers' knowledge and perception of dyslexia is important. Given that an instrument that measures both teachers' knowledge and perception of dyslexia is not available, this study aims to develop a scale to measure primary school teachers'…
