Abstract [en]

In this work we propose an IRT approach to model the self‐reported test-taking motivation in PISA and TIMSS Advanced studies. Both assessments are used to evaluate educational quality and student proficiency in an international context. Using six items included in the student's questionnaire as a national option in the Swedish context, we created an IRT motivation scale for each assessment. For the PISA, we evaluated changes in test‐taking motivation between 2012 and 2015, whereas the 2008 and 2015 cycles were used for the TIMSS Advanced. Both scales were created using a unidimensional Generalized Partial Credit model. Differential item functioning analysis was also incorporated into the analysis, due to a clear difference on the self‐reported motivation over the time.
