A Classical Test-Theory Approach to Criterion-Referenced Tests.
Livingston, Samuel A.
A criterion-referenced test is defined in this paper as any test for which the test user wants to compare each student's score not with the mean of some group, but with a specified criterion score, which does not depend on the scores the students actually obtain on the test. This definition, it is pointed out, implies that all the items on the test must measure the same thing. A classical test theory for criterion-referenced tests is derived.
