The Effect Of Interlocutor And Assessment Mode Variables In Overseas Assessments Of Speaking Skills In Occupational Settings, T Mcnamara, Tom Lumley Jun 1997

The Effect Of Interlocutor And Assessment Mode Variables In Overseas Assessments Of Speaking Skills In Occupational Settings, T Mcnamara, Tom Lumley

Dr Tom Lumley

The increasing demand for performance assessment of speaking skills in second languages has led to logistic complications, for example, the delivery of tests in overseas locations. One solution to the problem has been to train native interlocutors to carry out a series of oral interactions with the candidate, with assessment from audiorecordings of the test session postponed and conducted centrally by a small team of trained raters. But these procedures raise questions about the effect of such facets of the assessment situation as interlocutor variables and the quality of the audiotape recording. This article examines these issues in the context ...

The School Based Key Competencies Levels Assessment Project: Final Report, Doug Mccurry, Jennifer Bryce Mar 1997

The School Based Key Competencies Levels Assessment Project: Final Report, Doug Mccurry, Jennifer Bryce

Dr Jennifer Bryce

This project aimed to explore the school based assessment of levels of student performance on the constructs nominated by the Mayer Committee in their report 'The Key Competencies (1992)'. In a trial assessment 110 teachers in 10 schools across the country were asked to give global assessments of each of the key competencies for a total of 629 Year 11 students they were currently teaching using the key competencies framework developed for the purpose during the project. Also surveyed were the reactions of employers to a report format including the summary levels of performance developed in the assessment trial. At ...

The Multidimensional Random Coefficients Multinomial Logit Model, Ray Adams, M Wilson, W Wang Dec 1996

The Multidimensional Random Coefficients Multinomial Logit Model, Ray Adams, M Wilson, W Wang

Prof Ray Adams

A multidimensional Rasch-type item response model, the multidimensional random coefficients multinomial logit model, is presented as an extension to the Adams and Wilson (1996) random coefficients multinomial logit model. The model is developed in a form that permits generalization to the multidimensional case of a wide class of Rasch models, including the simple logistic model, Masters' partial credit model, Wilson's ordered partition model, and Fischer's linear logistic model. Moreover, the model includes several existing multidimensional models as special cases, including Whitely's multicomponent latent trait model, Andersen's multidimensional Rasch model for repeated testing, and Embretson's multidimensional ...

Economic Literacy Project: School Report - Year 11: Pilot Study, Capricornia Region, 1997, Dieter Kotte, Petra Lietz Dec 1996

Economic Literacy Project: School Report - Year 11: Pilot Study, Capricornia Region, 1997, Dieter Kotte, Petra Lietz

Dr Petra Lietz

This report of the study of year 11 economics students in the Capricornia region of Queensland is comprised of descriptive statistics and results of the economic literacy survey conducted in September 1997. For the purpose of this study, economic literacy was defined as the knowledge required to understand news about economic issues in the media. In addition teachers completed background surveys which examined their teaching experience, qualifications, and teaching methods, as well as school size, school resources and enrolment figures in 'economics'.


Applications Of Item Response Theory In The Third International Mathematics And Science Study, E Gonzalez, Ray Adams, Marg Wu Dec 1996

Applications Of Item Response Theory In The Third International Mathematics And Science Study, E Gonzalez, Ray Adams, Marg Wu

Prof Ray Adams

The Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) is a survey of mathematics and science achievement sponsored by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement. With more than 45 participating countries, three target populations, more than thirty languages, 15,000 schools, more than half a million students, TIMSS is the largest and most ambitious international study of educational achievement ever undertaken. Students participating in the assessment were administered one of eight achievement tests that contain items in mathematics and science, using a variety of item formats. As TIMSS is an international study, many audiences will look at the ...

Cross-Sectional Research Methods, Petra Lietz, John Keeves Dec 1996

Cross-Sectional Research Methods, Petra Lietz, John Keeves

Dr Petra Lietz

During the past decade new approaches to educational measurement have become more widely recognized and the use of computer programs has been developed to make sound use of the procedures and techniques associated with item response theory. However, the implications of these developments for research methodology have not yet been fully recognized. This Encyclopedia will address not only these changes for which the extent of developments are currently becoming evident but will also look forward to the major advances in the methods employed in empirical research which will arise from the use of improved measurement and scaling procedures.The Encyclopedia ...

The Acquisition Of Literacy In A Non-Native Language By Two Hispanic First Graders In A Mainstream Classroom. Dissertation, Linda Evans Dec 1996

The Acquisition Of Literacy In A Non-Native Language By Two Hispanic First Graders In A Mainstream Classroom. Dissertation, Linda Evans

Linda S. Evans

The purpose of the study was to provide an in-depth view or the processes employed by two Hispanic first-grade children for the simultaneous development of English language and English literacy skills in a mainstream classroom. As a qualitative case study utilizing naturalistic inquiry with an emergent design, the study included detailed observations of the school, school personnel, classroom environment, instruction, and the two students.

The major guiding question follows: How do first grade students who are limited in their English proficiency experience the dual processes of acquiring the English language and acquiring English literacy in a mainstream classroom?

Voltammetric Studies Of Mn@C82, Mark Anderson, Harry Dorn, Paul Burbank, James Gibson Dec 1996

Voltammetric Studies Of Mn@C82, Mark Anderson, Harry Dorn, Paul Burbank, James Gibson

Mark R. Anderson

The voltammetry for a series of related endohedral metallofullerenes is reported. It is found that as additional metal atoms are inserted into the fullerene cage, the first reduction of the metallofullerenes shifts to more negative potentials. This is consistent with more charge being transferred to the fullerene cage from the additional metal atom; however, the magnitude of the shift is much smaller than expected.
