Passing Scores and Test Lengths for Domain-Referenced Measures.
Millman, Jason
Procedures for establishing standards and determining the number of items needed in criterion-referenced measures are reviewed. The discussion of setting a passing score is organized around five factors: performance of others, item content, educational consequences, psychological and financial costs, and measurement error. Classical test theory, binomial, and sequential models for determining test length are considered. An illustrative table relating test length, proficiency standard, and required accuracy is provided.
