|Title:||Analysis for the Fit of NAEP Scales for Specified Sub-populations|
|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.
