  • Investigating the Impact of Noneffortful Responses on Individual-Level
           Scores: Can the Effort-Moderated IRT Model Serve as a Solution'

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Joseph A. Rios, James Soland
      Pages: 391 - 406
      Abstract: Applied Psychological Measurement, Volume 45, Issue 6, Page 391-406, September 2021.
      Suboptimal effort is a major threat to valid score-based inferences. While the effects of such behavior have been frequently examined in the context of mean group comparisons, minimal research has considered its effects on individual score use (e.g., identifying students for remediation). Focusing on the latter context, this study addressed two related questions via simulation and applied analyses. First, we investigated how much including noneffortful responses in scoring using a three-parameter logistic (3PL) model affects person parameter recovery and classification accuracy for noneffortful responders. Second, we explored whether improvements in these individual-level inferences were observed when employing the Effort Moderated IRT (EM-IRT) model under conditions in which its assumptions were met and violated. Results demonstrated that including 10% noneffortful responses in scoring led to average bias in ability estimates and misclassification rates by as much as 0.15 SDs and 7%, respectively. These results were mitigated when employing the EM-IRT model, particularly when model assumptions were met. However, once model assumptions were violated, the EM-IRT model’s performance deteriorated, though still outperforming the 3PL model. Thus, findings from this study show that (a) including noneffortful responses when using individual scores can lead to potential unfounded inferences and potential score misuse, and (b) the negative impact that noneffortful responding has on person ability estimates and classification accuracy can be mitigated by employing the EM-IRT model, particularly when its assumptions are met.

  • On the Speed Sensitivity Parameter in the Lognormal Model for Response
           Times and Implications for High-Stakes Measurement Practice

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Benjamin Becker, Dries Debeer, Sebastian Weirich, Frank Goldhammer
      Pages: 407 - 422
      Abstract: Applied Psychological Measurement, Volume 45, Issue 6, Page 407-422, September 2021.
      In high-stakes testing, often multiple test forms are used and a common time limit is enforced. Test fairness requires that ability estimates must not depend on the administration of a specific test form. Such a requirement may be violated if speededness differs between test forms. The impact of not taking speed sensitivity into account on the comparability of test forms regarding speededness and ability estimation was investigated. The lognormal measurement model for response times by van der Linden was compared with its extension by Klein Entink, van der Linden, and Fox, which includes a speed sensitivity parameter. An empirical data example was used to show that the extended model can fit the data better than the model without speed sensitivity parameters. A simulation was conducted, which showed that test forms with different average speed sensitivity yielded substantial different ability estimates for slow test takers, especially for test takers with high ability. Therefore, the use of the extended lognormal model for response times is recommended for the calibration of item pools in high-stakes testing situations. Limitations to the proposed approach and further research questions are discussed.

  • A Signal Detection Model for Multiple-Choice Exams

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Lawrence T. DeCarlo
      Pages: 423 - 440
      Abstract: Applied Psychological Measurement, Volume 45, Issue 6, Page 423-440, September 2021.
      A model for multiple-choice exams is developed from a signal-detection perspective. A correct alternative in a multiple-choice exam can be viewed as being a signal embedded in noise (incorrect alternatives). Examinees are assumed to have perceptions of the plausibility of each alternative, and the decision process is to choose the most plausible alternative. It is also assumed that each examinee either knows or does not know each item. These assumptions together lead to a signal detection choice model for multiple-choice exams. The model can be viewed, statistically, as a mixture extension, with random mixing, of the traditional choice model, or similarly, as a grade-of-membership extension. A version of the model with extreme value distributions is developed, in which case the model simplifies to a mixture multinomial logit model with random mixing. The approach is shown to offer measures of item discrimination and difficulty, along with information about the relative plausibility of each of the alternatives. The model, parameters, and measures derived from the parameters are compared to those obtained with several commonly used item response theory models. An application of the model to an educational data set is presented.

  • On Guessing: An Alternative Adjusted Positive Learning Estimator and
           Comparing Probability Misspecification With Monte Carlo Simulations

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Ben O. Smith, Dustin R. White
      Pages: 441 - 458
      Abstract: Applied Psychological Measurement, Volume 45, Issue 6, Page 441-458, September 2021.
      Practitioners in the sciences have used the “flow” of knowledge (post-test score minus pre-test score) to measure learning in the classroom for the past 50 years. Walstad and Wagner, and Smith and Wagner moved this practice forward by disaggregating the flow of knowledge and accounting for student guessing. These estimates are sensitive to misspecification of the probability of guessing correct. This work provides guidance to practitioners and researchers facing this problem. We introduce a transformed measure of true positive learning that under some knowable conditions performs better when students’ ability to guess correctly is misspecified and converges to Hake’s normalized learning gain estimator under certain conditions. We then use simulations to compare the accuracy of two estimation techniques under various violations of the assumptions of those techniques. Using recursive partitioning trees fitted to our simulation results, we provide the practitioner concrete guidance based on a set of yes/no questions.

  • The Explanatory Generalized Graded Unfolding Model: Incorporating
           Collateral Information to Improve the Latent Trait Estimation Accuracy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Seang-Hwane Joo, Philseok Lee, Stephen Stark
      Abstract: Applied Psychological Measurement, Ahead of Print.
      Collateral information has been used to address subpopulation heterogeneity and increase estimation accuracy in some large-scale cognitive assessments. The methodology that takes collateral information into account has not been developed and explored in published research with models designed specifically for noncognitive measurement. Because the accurate noncognitive measurement is becoming increasingly important, we sought to examine the benefits of using collateral information in latent trait estimation with an item response theory model that has proven valuable for noncognitive testing, namely, the generalized graded unfolding model (GGUM). Our presentation introduces an extension of the GGUM that incorporates collateral information, henceforth called Explanatory GGUM. We then present a simulation study that examined Explanatory GGUM latent trait estimation as a function of sample size, test length, number of background covariates, and correlation between the covariates and the latent trait. Results indicated the Explanatory GGUM approach provides scoring accuracy and precision superior to traditional expected a posteriori (EAP) and full Bayesian (FB) methods. Implications and recommendations are discussed.

  • Quantifying the Distorting Effect of Rapid Guessing on Estimates of
           Coefficient Αlpha

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Joseph A. Rios, Jiayi Deng
      Abstract: Applied Psychological Measurement, Ahead of Print.
      An underlying threat to the validity of reliability measures is the introduction of systematic variance in examinee scores from unintended constructs that differ from those assessed. One construct-irrelevant behavior that has gained increased attention in the literature is rapid guessing (RG), which occurs when examinees answer quickly with intentional disregard for item content. To examine the degree of distortion in coefficient alpha due to RG, this study compared alpha estimates between conditions in which simulees engaged in full solution (i.e., do not engage in RG) versus partial RG behavior. This was done by conducting a simulation study in which the percentage and ability characteristics of rapid responders as well as the percentage and pattern of RG were manipulated. After controlling for test length and difficulty, the average degree of distortion in estimates of coefficient alpha due to RG ranged from −.04 to .02 across 144 conditions. Although slight differences were noted between conditions differing in RG pattern and RG responder ability, the findings from this study suggest that estimates of coefficient alpha are largely robust to the presence of RG due to cognitive fatigue and a low perceived probability of success.

      Authors: Irina Grabovsky, Jesse Pace, Christopher Runyon
      Abstract: Applied Psychological Measurement, Ahead of Print.
      We model pass/fail examinations aiming to provide a systematic tool to minimize classification errors. We use the method of cut-score operating functions to generate specific cut-scores on the basis of minimizing several important misclassification measures. The goal of this research is to examine the combined effects of a known distribution of examinee abilities and uncertainty in the standard setting on the optimal choice of the cut-score. In addition, we describe an online application that allows others to utilize the cut-score operating function for their own standard settings.

  • autoFC: An R Package for Automatic Item Pairing in Forced-Choice Test
           Construction

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Mengtong Li, Tianjun Sun, Bo Zhang
      Abstract: Applied Psychological Measurement, Ahead of Print.
      Recently, there has been increasing interest in adopting the forced-choice (FC) test format in non-cognitive assessments, as it demonstrates faking resistance when well-designed. However, traditional or manual pairing approaches to FC test construction are time- and effort- intensive and often involve insufficient considerations. To address these issues, we developed the new open-source autoFC R package to facilitate automated and optimized item pairing strategies. The autoFC package is intended as a practical tool for FC test constructions. Users can easily obtain automatically optimized FC tests by simply inputting the item characteristics of interest. Customizations are also available for considerations on matching rules and the behaviors of the optimization process. The autoFC package should be of interest to researchers and practitioners constructing FC scales with potentially many metrics to match on and/or many items to pair, essentially exempting users from the burden of manual item pairing and reducing the computational costs and biases induced by simple ranking methods.

      Abstract: Applied Psychological Measurement, Ahead of Print.
      Multiple Administrations Adaptive Testing (MAAT) is an extension of the shadow-test approach to CAT for the assessment framework involving multiple tests administered periodically throughout the year. The maat package utilizes multiple item pools vertically scaled across grades and multiple phases (stages) within each test administration, allowing for transitioning from an item pool to another as deemed necessary to further enhance the quality of assessment.

  • A New Method to Balance Measurement Accuracy and Attribute Coverage in
           Cognitive Diagnostic Computerized Adaptive Testing

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Xiaojian Sun, Björn Andersson, Tao Xin
      Abstract: Applied Psychological Measurement, Ahead of Print.
      As one of the important research areas of cognitive diagnosis assessment, cognitive diagnostic computerized adaptive testing (CD-CAT) has received much attention in recent years. Measurement accuracy is the major theme in CD-CAT, and both the item selection method and the attribute coverage have a crucial effect on measurement accuracy. A new attribute coverage index, the ratio of test length to the number of attributes (RTA), is introduced in the current study. RTA is appropriate when the item pool comprises many items that measure multiple attributes where it can both produce acceptable measurement accuracy and balance the attribute coverage. With simulations, the new index is compared to the original item selection method (ORI) and the attribute balance index (ABI), which have been proposed in previous studies. The results show that (1) the RTA method produces comparable measurement accuracy to the ORI method under most item selection methods; (2) the RTA method produces higher measurement accuracy than the ABI method for most item selection methods, with the exception of the mutual information item selection method; (3) the RTA method prefers items that measure multiple attributes, compared to the ORI and ABI methods, while the ABI prefers items that measure a single attribute; and (4) the RTA method performs better than the ORI method with respect to attribute coverage, while it performs worse than the ABI with long tests.

      Abstract: Applied Psychological Measurement, Ahead of Print.
      In the last decade, many R packages were published to perform item response theory (IRT) analysis. Some researchers and practitioners have difficulty in using these functional tools because of their insufficient coding skills. The IRTGUI package provides these researchers a user-friendly GUI where they can perform unidimensional IRT analysis without coding skills. Using the IRTGUI package, person and item parameters, model and item fit indices can be obtained. Dimensionality and local independence assumptions can be tested. With the IRTGUI package, users can generate dichotomous data sets with customizable conditions. Also, Wright Maps, item characteristics and information curves can be graphically displayed. All outputs can be easily downloaded by users.

  • bmggum: An R Package for Bayesian Estimation of the Multidimensional
           Generalized Graded Unfolding Model With Covariates

      Abstract: Applied Psychological Measurement, Ahead of Print.
      Over the past couple of decades, there has been an increasing interest in adopting ideal point models to represent noncognitive constructs, as they have been demonstrated to better measure typical behaviors than traditional dominance models do. The generalized graded unfolding model (GGUM) has consistently been the most popular ideal point model among researchers and practitioners. However, the GGUM2004 software and the later developed GGUM package in R can only handle unidimensional models despite the fact that many noncognitive constructs are multidimensional in nature. In addition, GGUM2004 and the GGUM package often yield unreasonable estimates of item parameters and standard errors. To address these issues, we developed the new open-source bmggum R package that is capable of estimating both unidimensional and multidimensional GGUM using a fully Bayesian approach, with supporting capabilities of stabilizing parameterization, incorporating person covariates, estimating constrained models, providing fit diagnostics, producing convergence metrics, and effectively handling missing data.
