Some Psychometric Indicators for Statewide Assessments.
Jaeger, Richard M.
Three new indicators of psychometric quality for objectives-based statewide assessments are proposed. These measures provide indication of the stability of reported data on item and objectives mastery, the validity of assessment items for members of various cultural groups, and the convergent validity of prescribed objectives mastery scores. The results provided should also have application in situations other than statewide assessments. In particular, the results should be applicable whenever the psychometric quality of measurements for institutions, rather than individuals, is of concern. (Author/RC)
