Criterion-Referenced Testing and the Individualization of Instruction.
Lindvall, C. M.; Nitko, Anthony J.
Two ways of interpreting raw test data are norm-referencing and criterion-referencing; the former yields information based on some type of ordering of the person on the person's dimension, while the latter tells whether or not students can exhibit a given performance. Criterion-referenced information can be ordered into a criterion-referenced score, depending upon the extent to which it is possible to order the items on the criterion dimension. This method of handling information is particularly useful in the unit-objective testing method of individualizing instruction employed in Individually Prescribed Instruction (IPI) projects. (SP)
