An Investigation of Full-And Subscale Reliabilities of Criterion-Referenced Tests.
Haladyna, Thomas M.
Classical test theory has been rejected for application to criterion-referenced (CR) tests by most psychometricians due to an expected lack of variance in scores and other difficulties. The present study was conceived to resolve the variance problem and explore the possibility that classical test theory is both appropriate and desirable for some types of CR tests. Both a rationale and empirical evidence were offered to support the practice of suing unrestricted samples to estimate full- and subscale reliabilities of CR tests using classical procedures. However, reservations were expressed concerning the reliability of these subscales. (Author)
