Wai Kei Chan; Li Zhang; Emily Pey-Tee Oon – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2023
We report the validity of a test instrument that assesses the arithmetic ability of primary students by (a) describing the theoretical model of arithmetic ability assessment using Wilson's (2004) four building blocks of constructing measures and (b) providing empirical evidence for the validation study. The instrument consists of 21…

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…

Soysal, Sumeyra; Yilmaz Kogar, Esin – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2022
The testlet comprises a set of items based on a common stimulus. When the testlet is used in the tests, there may violate the local independence assumption, and in this case, it would not be appropriate to use traditional item response theory models in the tests in which the testlet is included. When the testlet is discussed, one of the most…

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…

Kezer, Fatih – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2021
Item response theory provides various important advantages for exams carried out or to be carried out digitally. For computerized adaptive tests to be able to make valid and reliable predictions supported by IRT, good quality item pools should be used. This study examines how adaptive test applications vary in item pools which consist of items…

Deniz, Kaan Zulfikar; Ilican, Emel – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2021
This study aims to compare the G and Phi coefficients as estimated by D studies for a measurement tool with the G and Phi coefficients obtained from real cases in which items of differing difficulty levels were added and also to determine the conditions under which the D studies estimated reliability coefficients closer to reality. The study group…
