Weiner, John A.; Hurtz, Gregory M. – Journal of Applied Testing Technology, 2017
Advances in technology have spurred innovations in secure assessment delivery. One such innovation, remote online proctoring, has become increasingly sophisticated and is gaining wider consideration for high-stakes testing. However, there is an absence of published research examining remote online proctoring and its effects on test scores and the…

Lazarus, Sheryl S.; van den Heuvel, Jill R.; Thurlow, Martha L. – Journal of Applied Testing Technology, 2017
This paper explores how to balance test security and accessibility on licensure, credentialing, and certification exams. It examines K-12 test security policies related to educational assessments across states to discover lessons learned about how to meet accessibility needs of individuals with disabilities while minimizing test security risks. It…

DiCerbo, Kristen E. – Journal of Applied Testing Technology, 2017
While game-based assessment offers new potential for understanding the processes students use to solve problems, it also presents new challenges in uncovering which player actions provide evidence that contributes to understanding about students' knowledge, skill, and attributes that we are interested in assessing. A development process that…

de Klerk, Sebastiaan; Kato, Pamela M. – Journal of Applied Testing Technology, 2017
Game-based assessments will most likely be an increasing part of testing programs in future generations because they provide promising possibilities for more valid and reliable measurement of students' skills as compared to the traditional methods of assessment like paper-and-pencil tests or performance-based assessments. The current status of…

Bauer, Malcolm; Wylie, Caroline; Jackson, Tanner; Mislevy, Bob; Hoffman-John, Erin; John, Michael; Corrigan, Seth – Journal of Applied Testing Technology, 2017
This paper explores the relation between formative assessment principles and their analogues in video games that game designers have been developing over the past 35 years. We identify important parallels between the two that should enable effective and efficient use of well-designed video games in the classroom as part of an overall learning…

Kato, Pamela M.; de Klerk, Sebastiaan – Journal of Applied Testing Technology, 2017
Serious games are increasingly being explored for use as assessment tools in broad domains. Drawing from research in these domains, we present important advantages and challenges that arise when using games for assessment. In light of this context and as an introduction to this special issue on Serious Games and Assessments, we introduce the…

Wolkowitz, Amanda A.; Davis-Becker, Susan L.; Gerrow, Jack D. – Journal of Applied Testing Technology, 2016
The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of a cheating prevention strategy employed for a professional credentialing exam that involved releasing over 7,000 active and retired exam items. This study evaluated: 1) If any significant differences existed between examinee performance on released versus non-released items; 2) If item…

Dickison, Philip; Luo, Xiao; Kim, Doyoung; Woo, Ada; Muntean, William; Bergstrom, Betty – Journal of Applied Testing Technology, 2016
Designing a theory-based assessment with sound psychometric qualities to measure a higher-order cognitive construct is a highly desired yet challenging task for many practitioners. This paper proposes a framework for designing a theory-based assessment to measure a higher-order cognitive construct. This framework results in a modularized yet…

Russell, Michael – Journal of Applied Testing Technology, 2016
Interest in and use of technology-enhanced items has increased over the past decade. Given the additional time required to administer many technology-enhanced items and the increased expense required to develop them, it is important for testing programs to consider the utility of technology-enhanced items. The Technology-Enhanced Item Utility…

Gierl, Mark J.; Lai, Hollis; Hogan, James B.; Matovinovic, Donna – Journal of Applied Testing Technology, 2015
The demand for test items far outstrips the current supply. This increased demand can be attributed, in part, to the transition to computerized testing, but, it is also linked to dramatic changes in how 21st century educational assessments are designed and administered. One way to address this growing demand is with automatic item generation.…

Katz, Irvin R.; Tannenbaum, Richard J. – Journal of Applied Testing Technology, 2014
Web-based standard setting holds promise for reducing the travel and logistical inconveniences of traditional, face-to-face standard setting meetings. However, because there are few published reports of setting standards via remote meeting technology, little is known about the practical potential of the approach, including technical feasibility of…

Smith, Russell W.; Davis-Becker, Susan L.; O'Leary, Lisa S. – Journal of Applied Testing Technology, 2014
This article describes a hybrid standard setting method that combines characteristics of the Angoff (1971) and Bookmark (Mitzel, Lewis, Patz & Green, 2001) methods. The proposed approach utilizes strengths of each method while addressing weaknesses. An ordered item booklet, with items sorted based on item difficulty, is used in combination…

Burke, Matthew; Devore, Richard; Stopek, Josh – Journal of Applied Testing Technology, 2013
This paper describes efforts to bring principled assessment design to a large-scale, high-stakes licensure examination by employing the frameworks of Assessment Engineering (AE), the Revised Bloom's Taxonomy (RBT), and Cognitive Task Analysis (CTA). The Uniform CPA Examination is practice-oriented and focuses on the skills of accounting. In…

Luecht, Richard M. – Journal of Applied Testing Technology, 2013
Assessment engineering is a new way to design and implement scalable, sustainable and ideally lower-cost solutions to the complexities of designing and developing tests. It represents a merger of sorts between cognitive task modeling and engineering design principles--a merger that requires some new thinking about the nature of score scales, item…

Hendrickson, Amy; Ewing, Maureen; Kaliski, Pamela; Huff, Kristen – Journal of Applied Testing Technology, 2013
Evidence-centered design (ECD) is an orientation towards assessment development. It differs from conventional practice in several ways and consists of multiple activities. Each of these activities results in a set of useful documentation: domain analysis, domain modeling, construction of the assessment framework, and assessment…
