IER Criterion-Referenced Mathematics Objective and Item Bank: A Bank of Mathematics Objectives and Test Items for Grades One through Eight.
Cunningham, Sandra; And Others
The mathematics objective-item bank contains 100 objectives each represented by five to eight multiple choice items. Grade levels covered are one through eight. The objectives deal with such topics as decimals, fractions, geometry, graphs and charts, integers, numeration, problem solving, and whole number operations. The items have been field tested on students in 32 school districts and have been calibrated according to the Rasch logistic model. The bank can serve as a starting point for developing tests of mathematics achievement tailored to the local district curriculum. Such tests can be used for district program evaluation, student diagnosis, competency testing, and formative or mastery testing. (Author)
