Evaluaciones nacionales del rendimiento academico Volumen 4 : Analisis de los datos de una evaluacion nacional del rendimiento academico by Gerry Shiel( )

3 editions published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Analisis de los datos de una evaluacion nacional del rendimiento academico es el cuarto de cinco volumenes de la serie Evaluaciones nacionales del rendimiento academico. Otros volumenes han descrito los procedimientos de una evaluacion hasta llegar a la fase de preparacion de los datos para su analisis estadistico, el tema del presente volumen. Los analisis precisos que se lleven a cabo dependeran de las necesidades de informacion de los responsables politicos y los gestores educativos. En la mayoria de las evaluaciones nacionales, estas necesidades tienen que ver con la calidad del aprendizaje estudiantil, los factores relacionados con el aprendizaje, las cuestiones de equidad, y en algunos casos, la transformacion de los resultados educativos con el paso del tiempo. El volumen 4, que consta de dos partes, explica detalladamente los pasos necesarios para el analisis de los datos recopilados en una evaluacion nacional. La 1.a parte ofrece una introduccion general a los analisis estadisticos llevados a cabo normalmente en las evaluaciones a gran escala, midiendo la tendencia central y la dispersion de los puntajes de los alumnos, asi como las relaciones entre variables. La 2.a parte describe el programa IATA (Item and Test Analysis), que utiliza la Teoria Clasica de las Pruebas y la Teoria de Respuesta al a?tem para establecer escalas sobre las que determinar los puntajes de los alumnos. Se describe en detalle los pasos del analisis de las administraciones de las pruebas piloto y las pruebas definitivas. Un CD complementario contiene ejercicios especialmente disenados y ficheros de datos de respaldo para ambas partes del volumen. Este libro sera de interes para los especialistas en evaluaciones en gobiernos nacionales, regionales y locales, instituciones de investigacion y universidades
