|Title:||Applying Item Response Modelling to Confirm the Underlying Construct of a New Process Instrument in Gymnastics||Contributor(s):||Haynes, JE (author); Miller, JA (author); Callingham, RA (author); Pegg, JE (author)||Publication Date:||2006||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/944||Abstract:||Three cohorts were observed performing a gymnastic locomotor skill – the forward roll. These groups included: children (n=48) aged between 6 years and 15 years; young adults (n=24) aged between 18 years and 22 years; and, older adults (n=45)aged between 28 years and 42 years. Qualitative analysis of visually recorded data resulted in the forward roll being categorised into three sequences, the 'beginning','middle' and 'end'. For each sequence a number of 'indicators' were identified. Each 'indicator' was further sub-divided into a number of 'descriptors'. These 'descriptors' were hierarchically ranked and using the 'Quest' (ACER) statistical package; a Rasch analysis was employed to determine whether the 'descriptors' confirmed the underlying construct. The application of the Rasch model was confirmatory for identifying the structure of a range of quality movement performances.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||AARE 2005 International Educational Research Conference - Creative Dissent: Constructive Solutions, Parramatta, Australia, 27th November - 1st December, 2005||Conference Details:||AARE 2005 International Educational Research Conference - Creative Dissent: Constructive Solutions, Parramatta, Australia, 27th November - 1st December, 2005||Source of Publication:||AARE 2005 International Educational Research Conference Proceedings [paper code: HAY05720], p. 1-16||Publisher:||AARE: Australian Association for Research in Education||Place of Publication:||Australia||ISSN:||1324-9339||Field of Research (FOR):||130303 Education Assessment and Evaluation||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.aare.edu.au/05pap/hay05720.pdf
