COSTA BALL, Daniel; GRUNDEL, María  e  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

Palavras-chave : differential item functioning; impact; reading skills.
