Abstract [en]

In this paper we examine four statistical methods used for characterizing mathematical test items regarding their demands of reading ability. These methods rely on data of students' performance on test items regarding mathematics and reading and include the use of regression analysis, factor analysis and different uses of correlation coefficients. Our investigation of these methods focuses on aspects of validity and reliability, using data from PISA 2003 and 2006. The results show that the method using factor analysis has the best properties when taking into account aspects of both validity and reliability.
