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…

Oyar, Esra; Atar, Hakan Yavuz – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2021
The aim of this study is to examine whether or not the positive and negative items in the Mathematical Self-Confidence Scale employed in TIMSS 2015 lead to wording effect. While examining whether the expression effect is present or not, analyzes were conducted both on the general sample and on a separate sample for female and male students. To…

Kula Kartal, Seval; Mor Dirlik, Ezgi – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2021
In the current study, the factor structure of an attitude scale was analyzed by using the two different item response theory models that allow modeling nonmonotonic item response curves. The current study utilized the two models to examine whether the two-factor solution of factor analysis may be caused by method effect, or by the failure of the…

Erguvan, Inan Deniz; Aksu Dunya, Beyza – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2021
This study examined the faculty perspectives towards the use of electronic rubrics and their rating behavior in a freshman composition course. A mixed-methods approach has been employed for data collection and analysis. The data for faculty perspectives were collected from nine instructors through semi-structured interviews and for their behavior,…

Baris Pekmezci, Fulya; Sengul Avsar, Asiye – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2021
There is a great deal of research about item response theory (IRT) conducted by simulations. Item and ability parameters are estimated with varying numbers of replications under different test conditions. However, it is not clear what the appropriate number of replications should be. The aim of the current study is to develop guidelines for the…

Soysal, Sumeyra; Yilmaz Kogar, Esin – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2021
In this study, whether item position effects lead to DIF in the condition where different test booklets are used was investigated. To do this the methods of Lord's chi-square and Raju's unsigned area with the 3PL model under with and without item purification were used. When the performance of the methods was compared, it was revealed that…

Uysal, Ibrahim; Dogan, Nuri – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2021
Scoring constructed-response items can be highly difficult, time-consuming, and costly in practice. Improvements in computer technology have enabled automated scoring of constructed-response items. However, the application of automated scoring without an investigation of test equating can lead to serious problems. The goal of this study was to…

Diaz, Emily; Brooks, Gordon; Johanson, George – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2021
This Monte Carlo study assessed Type I error in differential item functioning analyses using Lord's chi-square (LC), Likelihood Ratio Test (LRT), and Mantel-Haenszel (MH) procedure. Two research interests were investigated: item response theory (IRT) model specification in LC and the LRT and continuity correction in the MH procedure. This study…

Lee, Hyung Rock; Sung, Jaeyun; Lee, Sunbok – International Journal of Assessment Tools in Education, 2021
Conventional estimators for indirect effects using a difference in coefficients and product of coefficients produce the same results for continuous outcomes. However, for binary outcomes, the difference in coefficient estimator systematically underestimates the indirect effects because of a scaling problem. One solution is to standardize…
