Evaluating the Black Student Peer Mentoring Program at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro 1991 90 This study evaluated the Black Peer Mentor Program at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) by assessing its effect on the grade point average and retention rates of African- American freshman students who participated in the program....
An evaluation of a dropout prevention program for middle school students in an urban setting 1991 124 The Greensboro "Cities in Schools" project, one of several federally funded interventions programs across the nation targeted toward elementary and secondary students who are "at risk" of dropping out of school, was critically evaluated. Similar to ...
An investigation and analysis of ninth grade academic profiles and plans after high school 1991 93 Using information readily available in a student's cumulative folder, this study provides a practical model to assist schools in identifying, early in high school, the educational/career path an individual student is likely to pursue immediately afte...
An investigation of the comparability and accuracy of three differential item functioning (dif) detection methods using empirical and simulated data 1995 63 The purpose of this study was to investigate the comparability and accuracy of three differential item functioning (DIF) detection methods: the Mantel-Haenszel X2 approach, the IRT Unsigned Area approach, and the log-linear approach. Based on a revie...
A theoretical and empirical investigation of factor analytically-based matching criteria in differential item functioning 1995 95 Modern investigative procedures to detect differential item functioning (DIF) match examinee groups on ability before comparison. The validity of DIF procedures depends, in part, on the unidimensionality of the matching criterion; however, the most p...
Using the area between two item response functions to index differential item functioning : a generalized approach 1994 107 The area between two item response functions was used to construct two indicators of differential item functioning. The first indicator was designed from the integral of the difference of the two response functions across six standard deviations of a...
