Resumen

COSTA BALL, Daniel; GRUNDEL, María  y  CUADRO, Ariel. IMPACT AND DIFFERENTIAL FUNCTIONING OF THE ITEMS CONCERNING THE GENDER IN THE TEST OF READING EFICACIA ( TECLE ). Cienc. Psicol. [online]. 2011, vol.5, n.1, pp.47-57. ISSN 1688-4221.

The aim of this paper is to study the possible differential item functioning (DIF) on the Test of Reading Efficiency (TECLE). Mantel-Haenszelt (MH) analyses were performed for DIF detection purposes, to test whether the TECLE items performed differentially by gender-based group. The sample (n=1159) was composed by 9 to 12 year old elementary school students (50,5 % males, 49,5 % females). Analyses yielded DIF on 6,25% of items. Although the literature suggests there were differential reading efficacy skills among male and female participants in 4 out of 64 items of the measure reported on here, gender-based standardization doesn’t appear to be needed. We should consider the possibility of continue studying this subject by expert judges who would contribute to acquire further knowledge on DIF

Palabras clave : differential item functioning; impact; reading skills.
