What to Make Of and How to Interpret Process Data

What to Make Of and How to Interpret Process Data MEASUREMENT: INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AND PERSPECTIVES 2017, VOL. 15, NOS. 3–4, 128–132 https://doi.org/10.1080/15366367.2017.1411651 Frank Goldhammer and Fabian Zehner German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF), Centre for International Student Assessment (ZIB) Centre for International Student Assessment (ZIB), Centre for Technology Based Assessment (TBA) Maddox (2017) argues that respondents’ talk and gesture during an assessment inform researchers how a response product has evolved. Indeed, how a task is performed represents key information for psychological and educational assessment. In an ancient example: Gideon was required by the Lord to select those men who lap the water with their tongues, but not those who kneel down to drink (Judges 7:5 New International Version). In cognitive ability testing, process data can be defined as empirical information about the cognitive (as well as meta-cognitive, motivational, and affective) states and related behavior that mediate the effect of the measured construct(s) on the task product (i.e., item score). Thus, operationally, process data can be regarded as the empirical data reflecting the course of working on a test item. Recently, process data has increasingly gained attention in cognitive ability testing given the digitalization of measurement and the possibility of exploiting log file data.
