Unlike native English speakers, they do not all share a common language. Additionally, ELL students were not all born in the same country and m...
Examining the impact of differential item functioning on growth models 2017 192 Longitudinal data analysis assumes that scales meet the assumption of longitudinal measurement invariance (i.e., that scales function equivalently across measurement occasions). This simulation study examines the impact of violations to the assumptio...
Analysis of the schizotypal ambivalence scale 2017 40 The purpose of this study was threefold: a) to provide a thorough modern measurement example in a field where it is more limited in use, b) to investigate the psychometric properties of the Schizotypal Ambivalence Scale (SAS) through IRT measurement ...
