Wie weet het beter, de docent of de centrale eindtoets?
In 2015 werd het docentadvies leidend bij de plaatsing van leerlingen in het voortgezet onderwijs. De invoering van deze maatregel is nog altijd omstreden, getuige vurige discussies onder wetenschappers en in de media. De prangende vraag is: wie weet het beter, de docent of de Centrale eindtoets?
How do included and excluded students with SEBD function socially and academically after 1,5 year of special education services?
Special education services in exclusive settings may afford certain benefits to some students with social/emotional/behavioural difficulties (SEBD), not typically found in regular education, which can be considered a first indication that there may be valid counterarguments against the ‘inclusion for all’ perspective on educational needs.
Bayesian versus Frequentist Estimation for SEM: A Systematic Review
The Performance of Maximum Likelihood and Bayesian Estimation With Small and Unbalanced Samples in a Latent Growth Model is compared in a simulation study
Development and Evaluation of a Digital Expert Elicitation Method
The paper describes an elicitation procedure which opens up many opportunities to investigate tacit differences between “subjective” teacher judgments and “objective” data such as test results and to raise the diagnostic competence of teachers.
Manipulating the alpha level cannot cure significance testing
We argue that depending on p-values to reject null hypotheses, including a recent call for changing the canonical alpha level for statistical significance from .05 to .005, is deleterious for the finding of new discoveries and the progress of cumulative science.
Bayes with Informed Priors Based on Literature and Expert Elicitation
Bayesian Trajectory Analysis with Informed Priors Based on a Systematic Literature Search and Expert Elicitation in the field of Post Traumatic Stress.
Applying guidelines to construct informative priors in small sample research
The current paper demonstrates the usefulness of Bayesian estimation with small samples. In Bayesian estimation, prior information can be included …
Bayesian statistics in educational research: a look at the current state of affairs
A steady accumulation of knowledge requires approaches which allow researchers to consider results from comparable prior research. Bayesian statistics is especially relevant for establishing a cumulative scientific discipline …
A General procedure for Testing Inequality Constrained Hypotheses in SEM
Researchers in the social and behavioral sciences often have clear expectations about the order and/or the sign of the parameters in their statistical model. For example, a researcher might expect that regression coefficient β1 is larger than β2 and β3.
