The Matrix Test Analysis Program: A Measurement Heuristic.
Davis, Richard W.; Loadman, William E.
A subject by item matrix of test responses is shown to be a useful heuristic in criterion referenced and norm referenced test analysis, and in the teaching of measurement. The pattern of responses within the matrix provides indications of item interactions, weak deceptors, and conventional test statistics. The strong visual analogy between the matrix and test parameters makes the matrix a useful teaching aid and analytical tool. (Author)
