Short-Cut Statistics for Teacher-Made Tests.
Diederich, Paul B.
Written by an ex-Latin teacher, short-cuts to analyzing test results for the non-mathematical teacher are provided. Discussions are given of item analysis (item analysis by a show of hands, standards for test items: success, standards for test items: discrimination, and the second stage of item analysis. The standard error is then presented (the standard error of a test score, estimated standard errors of test scores, when two test scores are "really" different, levels of significance, philosophic digression, the standard error of an average, standard error of a difference between averages). Test reliability computation is then described, and the way to compute a simple type of correlation for a class of average size is presented. (DB)
