[Computer Program PEDAGE -- MARKTF-M7-F4.]
Toronto Univ. (Ontario). Dept. of Geology.
The MARKTF-M7 computer program, written in FORTRAN IV, scores true/false tests by comparing a control list of T/F values prepared by the instructor with those obtained from the students. The output, primarily for the use of the instructor, consists of a listing of the names of the students with their respective marks prior to the test, the test scores, and the combined scores as the final marks. In addition, statistics on means, frequency distribution of the scores, and examination items answered correctly are tabulated. This program can be used for large classes and/or large examinations (up to 5,000 students and 810 items), but since the scoring is done in a one-pass process, no intermediate tape or disk storage is required. It was designed especially for easy preparation of the data deck and small expenditure of computer time. The method, error messages and default conditions, data acquisition, the FORTRAN program, and the data deck are presented. (For related documents, see TM 002 789-793.) (DB)
