Title: Analysis for the Fit of NAEP Scales for Specified Sub-populations
Center: NCES Year: 2004
Principal Investigator: Beaton, Albert Awardee: Boston College
Program: NAEP Secondary Analysis Grants      [Program Details]

Purpose: This project will further test and evaluate the fit statistic previously developed for NAEP by the principal investigator. A major goal of the study is to determine how the fit statistic operates in real world studies of how well the NAEP scales fit data from sub-groups of students whose performance is known to be non-standard.
