Le Modele De Rasch: Les Principes Sous-Jacents Et Son Application a La Validation De Tests (The Rasch Model: Underlying Principles and Application to Test Validation) by John H. A. L. de Jong( Book )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The one-parameter psychometric model known as the Rasch model is described and examined. The basic principles underlying the model and the concepts of unidimensionality, local stochastic independence, and additivity are explained in non-mathematical terms. The requirements of measurement procedures, the measurement of latent traits, the control on model fit, and the definition of a trait are discussed. It is argued that the Rasch model is particularly appropriate to understand the mutual dependence of test reliability and validity. Examples from French native language and English foreign language listening comprehension tests are used to illustrate the application of the model to a test validation procedure. (Author/MSE)
Listening, a Single Trait in First and Second Language Learning by John H. A. L. de Jong( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A study investigated the validity of an English listening skills test by comparing the results of native American and British English speakers with those of Dutch students of English as a second language. A hypothesis suggested that two-thirds of the items would test listening skills and the remaining third would test other knowledge. Test results were analyzed according to both classical test theory and the Rasch item response theory. The findings showed the test to be disappointing as a measure of listening comprehension skills, but did suggest that the language listening ability of first- and second-language learners can be measured along a single variable that can be distinguished from age and educational background.

Theory Building: Sample Size and Data-Model Fit by John H. A. L. de Jong( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A study of item response theory in language testing research investigated the influence of sample size on (1) the statistical test of data-model fit and (2) the invariance of parameter estimates. Data were drawn from a 1993 administration of the examination of Dutch as a second language to about a thousand candidates, using results from only the listening comprehension segment. One group of examinees was divided into several randomly assembled subsamples, differing in size. Independent analyses of the subsamples were run to assess sample size influence on output variables. Second, a subset of test items was selected for which statistical model fit could be shown, and stability of data-model fit and invariance of item and person parameters over several randomly drawn subsamples was evaluated. Results indicate that estimates of data-model fit and item and person parameters are highly dependent on sample size, but that estimates will be stable for randomly drawn subsamples from a large sample for which statistical fit can be shown. Implications for theory building in language testing research are discussed. Contains 14 references. (Mse)

Effect of Mixing Ability Groups on Ability Levels Attained by John H. A. L. de Jong( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In 1983, in the Netherlands' highly differentiated school system, two types of curriculum representing different ability levels were combined as a first step towards a more heterogeneous grouping of student abilities. A study of one aspect of the results of this change compared over 1000 samples of English and German second language listening comprehension tests administered before and after the change. Statistical analysis of test results from students representing two different ability levels in different years indicate that the curriculum change may have had a negative effect at both levels of achievement. The results indicate that mixing ability levels has a negative effect on the final ability attained. The findings are supported by results on tests of other foreign language skills (reading comprehension) and in another subject (chemistry). (Mse)
Testing Foreign Language Listening Comprehension by John H. A. L. de Jong( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The development and validation of a test of listening comprehension for English as a second language at the Dutch National Institute for Educational Measurement (Cito) is described. The test uses two distinct item formats: true-false items and modified cloze items with two options. Both item formats were found to measure foreign language listening comprehension in a valid and reliable way, testing comprehension of a large variety of language samples. However, the cloze item appeared to demonstrate better psychometric qualities. Further testing of the true-false item format is recommended. (Mse)

Focusing in on a Latent Trait: An Attempt at Construct Validation by Means of the Rasch Model by John H. A. L. de Jong( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Rasch model for test analysis is a latent-trait model, which specifies the relationship between observable test performance and the unobservable traits or abilities assumed under test performance. In most cases, the test constructor has no clue as to whether the latent traits postulated by the model are indeed the abilities he wants to measure. A study using an English-language listening comprehension test for both native speakers and Dutch students of English as a second language has yielded data that may help to identify the ability that, according to Rasch test analysis, underlies the main trait measured by the test.

Tailoring Tests to Educational Levels by John H. A. L. de Jong( Book )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The Netherlands' secondary education system is highly differentiated, with four different school types for four scholastic ability levels. Final examinations must accommodate these four levels, and require a test-independent definition of the intended final ability levels as well as a sample-free evaluation of the range of ability levels at which a particular test will measure with sufficient accuracy. A method for locating, on a single scale, the ability distribution of a given population as well as the test's optimal reliability level is proposed and illustrated. The method is demonstrated using standardized tests of foreign language listening comprehension for the two highest levels of secondary education in the Netherlands. The languages tested are French, German, and English. Statistical analyses of the test results for each group are presented and discussed, and implications for test use are examined. (Mse)
