    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Test-taking motivation; Swedish national tests; validity; expectancy-value theory; task value; expectancies; young adolescents; self-report instrument; interview; structural equation modelling; test stakes; didactics of educational measurement; beteendevetenskapliga mätningar;

    Abstract : The overall aim of the work underlying this thesis was to improve the understanding of students’ test-taking motivation in connection to achievement tests for young adolescents. The thesis includes four studies and a summary. All four studies explore test-taking motivation and are all connected to validity in one way of another. READ MORE

  2. 2. Effective Distribution Theory

    Author : Fredrik Dahlgren; Viggo Stoltenberg-Hansen; Dag Normann; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Computable mathematics; computable analysis; domain theory; domain representations; distribution theory.; Mathematical logic; Matematisk logik;

    Abstract : In this thesis we introduce and study a notion of effectivity (or computability) for test functions and for distributions. This is done using the theory of effective (Scott-Ershov) domains and effective domain representations. READ MORE

  3. 3. Methods for interval-censored data and testing for stochastic dominance

    Author : Angel G. Angelov; Magnus Ekström; Maria Karlsson; Bengt Kriström; Per Johansson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Interval-censored data; Informative censoring; Self-selected intervals; Questionnaire-based studies; Maximum likelihood; Permutation test; Two-sample test; Stochastic dominance; Four-decision test; Statistics; statistik;

    Abstract : This thesis includes four papers: the first three of them are concerned with methods for interval-censored data, while the forth paper is devoted to testing for stochastic dominance.In many studies, the variable of interest is observed to lie within an interval instead of being observed exactly, i.e. READ MORE

  4. 4. The Measurement of Subjective Well-Being: Item Response Theory, Classical Test Theory, and Multidimensional Item Response Theory

    Author : Ali Al Nima; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Life Satisfaction; Negative Affect; Positive Affect; Harmoni in Life Subjective Well-Being; Item Response Theory; Classical Test Theory; Multidimensional Item Response Theory.;

    Abstract : For over 35 years, modern science has conceptualized happiness as subjective well-being, which has until recently been understood as a dual construct consisting of an affective component (positive and negative affect) and a cognitive component (life satisfaction). Nevertheless, for the last five years, theoretical work and both quantitative and qualitative empirical work have suggested that the concept of subjective well-being omits both a lay and an Eastern way of understanding happiness.
