Estimating Total-Test Score Distributions Through Item Sampling--A New Theoretical Approach.
Hill, Richard K., Jr.
A model for multiple choice test-taking behavior is proposed which is different from those presently used for item sampling theory. A new theory is developed, which includes a new concept to facilitate comprehension of item sampling theory, a "number-known" score distribution. A major advantage of the model is that it accommodates data from multidimensional tests. The relationships between the proposed model and established theory are shown. The advantages and disadvantages of the proposed theory are compared to those of other techniques currently in use. (Author)
