The most critical feature of a common-item nonequivalent groups equating design is that the average score difference between the new and old groups can be accurately decomposed into a group ability difference and a form difficulty difference.
This study examines the differences in equating outcomes between two trend score equating designs resulting from two different scoring strategies for trend scoring when operational constructed-response (CR) items are double-scored--the single group (SG) design, where each trend CR item is double-scored, and the nonequivalent groups with anchor test (NEAT) design, where each trend CR item is single-scored during trend score equating--for varying sample sizes (n =150, 200, 250, 300, 400).
The length of the anchor test was also varied to enable examination of its effect on the three different equating methods.
