Measuring Human Intelligence with Artificial Intelligence
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004)
Adaptive item generation may be the next innovation in intelligence testing. In adaptive item generation, the optimally informative item is developed anew for the examinee during the test. Reminiscent of computer versus ...
Construct Validity and Cognitive Diagnostic Assessment
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007)
Cognitive diagnostic assessment (CDA) is increasingly a major focus in psychological and educational measurement. Instead of inferring a general response tendency or behavior consistency of an examinee over a target domain ...
Multicomponent Latent Trait Models for Complex Tasks
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2006)
Contemporary views on cognitive theory (e.g., Sternberg and Perez, 2005) regard typical measurement tasks, such as ability and achievement test items, multidimensional, rather than unidimensional. Assessing the levels and ...
Problem Restructuring Processes for Ill-Structured Verbal Analogies
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1981)
The processes involved in analogy solving have been an important investigative area in cognitive psychology. Although problem restructuring has been a central construct in problem solving theory, no restructuring processes ...
Improving Construct Validity with Cognitive Psychology Principles
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2001)
Cognitive psychology principles have been heralded as possibly central to construct validity. In this paper, testing practices are examined in three stages: (a) the past, in which the traditional testing research paradigm ...
Cognitive Design Principles and the Successful Performer: A Study on Spatial Ability
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1996)
An important trend in educational measurement is the use of principles of cognitive psychology to design achievement and ability test items. Many studies show that manipulating the stimulus features of items influences ...
Models, Meanings and Misunderstandings: Some Issues in Applying Rasch's Theory
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1977)
Wright (1977) shows that a debate is developing between those who strongly advocate use of the Rasch model and those who have certain reservations about the extent to which the model meets some traditional concerns in trait ...
Measuring and Validating Cognitive Modifiability as an Ability: A Study in the Spatial Domain
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1992)
Measuring cognitive modifiability from the responsiveness of an individual's performance to intervention has long been viewed (e.g., Dearborne, 1921) as an alternative to traditional (static) ability measurement. Currently, ...
The Nature of Objectivity with the Rasch Model
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1974)
Although it has been claimed that the Rasch model leads to a higher degree of objectivity in measurement than has been previously possible, this model has had little impact on test development. Population-invariant item ...
Psychometric Approaches to Understanding and Measuring Intelligence
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2000)
