The Use of Confidence Testing in Objective Tests.
Confidence testing has been used in varying forms over the past 40 years as a method for increasing the amount of information available from objective test items. This paper traces the development of the procedure from Hevner's beginning method up to the various methods in use today and describes both the testing procedures and scoring methods used. The term confidence testing is applied to both probabilistic testing and confidence weighting procedures. Various procedures are presented and their relationship with personality factors discussed.
