Establishing Standards for Licensing and Certification Tests: Theory vs. Practice. Draft.
Elliot, Scott M.; Patterson, Sandra
Exams which are periodically updated and revised also require a revision of the cut score to ensure that examinees who take the original form of the test, and those taking the revised form, are scored on an equivalent basis. This paper discusses available standard setting procedures as applied to establishing minimum passing scores for licensing and certification examinations. It describes the methods and procedures used in reviewing and revising cut scores for a teacher licensing test. These methods provide a practical, legally defensible, and technically sound approach to reevaluating cut scores for revised licensing and certification tests. They are based upon a modification of the Angoff procedure applied to tests undergoing revision. (Author/DWH)
