Longitudinal Modeling in Education: Complexities and Possibilities
Longitudinal models are becoming increasingly popular in education policy because given student outcomes at multiple time points; they can provide individual estimates of growth or learning. These models can provide reasonable growth estimates by accounting for school effects, teacher effects, and the effects of external factors, but cannot easily model the complexities of the measurement context. In this talk, I will present the Latent Growth Item Response (LG-IRM) as a way to accommodate the complexities of the educational measurement context while still providing individual growth estimates.
