Gottfried, Jaroslav; Ježek, Stanislav; Králová, Maria; Rihácek, Tomáš – Practical Assessment, Research & Evaluation, 2022
Valid data are essential for making correct theoretical and practical implications. Hence, efficient methods for detecting and excluding data with dubious validity are highly valuable in any field of science. This paper introduces the idea of applying autocorrelation analysis on self-report questionnaires with single-choice numbered, preferably…

Collier, Zachary K.; Zhang, Haobai; Liu, Liu – Practical Assessment, Research & Evaluation, 2022
Although educational research and evaluation generally occur in multilevel settings, many analyses ignore cluster effects. Neglecting the nature of data from educational settings, especially in non-randomized experiments, can result in biased estimates with long-term consequences. Our manuscript improves the availability and understanding of…

Howard, Jeffrey N. – Practical Assessment, Research & Evaluation, 2022
The Student Evaluation of Teaching (SET) instrument provides insight for instructors and administrators alike, often touting high response-rates to endorse their validity and reliability. However, response-rate alone omits consideration for "adequate quantity of 'observational sampling opportunity' (OSO) data points" (e.g., high student…

Mark, Scott – Practical Assessment, Research & Evaluation, 2021
The idea of group work assessment is often seen as complicated, but necessary given the value of group work to learning. However, the traditional method involving a collective grade has been shown to be a less effective option, and raises questions about fairness for the students. Utilizing an evaluation factor provides a more inclusive assessment…

Svihla, Vanessa; Gallup, Amber – Practical Assessment, Research & Evaluation, 2021
In making validity arguments, a central consideration is whether the instrument fairly and adequately covers intended content, and this is often evaluated by experts. While common procedures exist for quantitatively assessing this, the effect of loss aversion--a cognitive bias that would predict a tendency to retain items--on these procedures has…

Kannan, Priya; Zapata-Rivera, Diego; Bryant, Andrew D. – Practical Assessment, Research & Evaluation, 2021
Individual-student score reports sometimes include information about precision of scores (i.e., measurement error). In this study, we specifically investigated if parents understand this information when presented. We conducted an online experimental study where 196 parents of middle school children, from various parts of the country, were…

León, Samuel Parra; Pantoja Vallejo, Antonio; Nelson, James Byron – Practical Assessment, Research & Evaluation, 2021
The present work empirically examines the validity of Student Self-Assessment (SSA) as an educational assessment in higher education. We briefly review the principle methodological factors that could affect SSA validity, as well as the main findings identified in the literature. One empirical study is presented that compares student-self…

Stemler, Steven E.; Naples, Adam – Practical Assessment, Research & Evaluation, 2021
When students receive the same score on a test, does that mean they know the same amount about the topic? The answer to this question is more complex than it may first appear. This paper compares classical and modern test theories in terms of how they estimate student ability. Crucial distinctions between the aims of Rasch Measurement and IRT are…
