Coombs' Type Response Procedures.
Koehler, Roger A.
This paper provides substantial evidence in favor of the continued use of conventional objective testing procedures in lieu of either the Coombs' cross-out technique or the Dressel and Schmid free-choice response procedure. From the studies presented in this paper, the tendency is for the cross-out and the free choice methods to yield a decrement rather than an improvement in the quality of measurement characteristics when compared to conventional testing procedures.
