A Hand-Scoring System for Confidence-Weighted Scores.
Ahlgren, Andrew
A hand-scoring system for a three-level confidence-marking scheme for short answer and multiple-choice tests is described. The scoring system is for a test where the student is asked to indicate for each answer whether the probability of his being correct is more than 1/2 (sure), 1/2 (neutral), or less than 1/2 (guess). The effect of the system is to add 1/3 of a point for each response if the student is correct and sure, or wrong and guessed; to subtract 1/3 point if the student is correct and guessed, or wrong and sure; and not to alter the score for neutral responses. Although the system will probably double the time required for scoring, it is simple and mechanical. A sample answer sheet and student instruction form are included. (DG)
