Beier, Loreen; Blossfeld, Hans-Peter – Large-scale Assessments in Education, 2023
While gender differences in mathematical competencies favoring boys are well researched for school and late Kindergarten age, much less is known about their earlier development. Using data from the NEPS Newborn Cohort study, this paper focuses on 4 year-old children and the effects of the numerical and literacy stimulation during mother-child…

Diaz Lema, Melisa L.; Rossi, Lidia; Soncin, Mara – Large-scale Assessments in Education, 2023
The COVID-19 pandemic coerced the closure of most schools around the world and forced teachers and students to change teaching and learning methods. Emergency Remote Teaching (ERT) generated consequences to teachers and students in terms of learning outcomes and personal well-being. This study focuses on teachers' individual and working…

Embretson, Susan – Large-scale Assessments in Education, 2023
Understanding the cognitive processes, skills and strategies that examinees use in testing is important for construct validity and score interpretability. Although response processes evidence has long been included as an important aspect of validity (i.e., "Standards for Educational and Psychological Tests," 1999), relevant studies are…

Ramazan, Onur; Danielson, Robert William; Rougee, Annick; Ardasheva, Yuliya; Austin, Bruce W. – Large-scale Assessments in Education, 2023
Grounded in ecological theory, this study investigated relative contributions of perceived classroom and school climate variables to mathematics self-concept and achievement of English-at-home and English learner (EL) students using PISA 2012 data for American middle-grade students. For both outcomes, results of 3-step hierarchical linear…

Harrison, Scott; Kroehne, Ulf; Goldhammer, Frank; Lüdtke, Oliver; Robitzsch, Alexander – Large-scale Assessments in Education, 2023
Background: Mode effects, the variations in item and scale properties attributed to the mode of test administration (paper vs. computer), have stimulated research around test equivalence and trend estimation in PISA. The PISA assessment framework provides the backbone to the interpretation of the results of the PISA test scores. However, an…

Wang, Xiaofang Sarah; Perry, Laura B.; Malpique, Anabela; Ide, Tobias – Large-scale Assessments in Education, 2023
The Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) has become the world's largest comparative assessment of academic achievement. While hundreds of studies have examined the factors predicting student achievement in PISA, a comprehensive overview of the main predictors has yet to be completed. To address this gap, we conducted a systematic…

Tenison, Caitlin; Sparks, Jesse R. – Large-scale Assessments in Education, 2023
Background: Digital Information Literacy (DIL) refers to the ability to obtain, understand, evaluate, and use information in digital contexts. To accurately capture various dimensions of DIL, assessment designers have increasingly looked toward complex, interactive simulation-based environments that afford more authentic learner performances.…

Gorgun, Guher; Bulut, Okan – Large-scale Assessments in Education, 2023
In low-stakes assessment settings, students' performance is not only influenced by students' ability level but also their test-taking engagement. In computerized adaptive tests (CATs), disengaged responses (e.g., rapid guesses) that fail to reflect students' true ability levels may lead to the selection of less informative items and thereby…

Avvisati, Francesco; Borgonovi, Francesca – Large-scale Assessments in Education, 2023
Written instructions seldom need to be read when playing videogames. Instead, gaming often involves early information foraging and expansive exploration behaviors. We use data from the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) to explore whether students who regularly play videogames (daily gamers) adopt behaviors that are typical of…
