Item Analysis of Academic Achievement Tests - Hearing Impaired Students.
Gentile, Augustine; DiFrancesca, Sal
An item analysis of the Stanford Achievement Test performance of about 12,000 students in schools and classes for the hearing impaired is presented. Tables show the percentage of correct answers to each question, as well as a summary of the responses for each sub-test and major categories within some sub-tests. Because the test was developed for use with normal hearing students, the reliability and validity of the test results are discussed. Three appendixes present information about The Annual Survey of Hearing Impaired Children and Youth, a copy of the annual census of hearing impaired children form, and a list of participants in the Annual Survey of Hearing Impaired Children and Youth 1968-69 School Year.
