An Examination of Criterion-Referenced Test Characteristics in Relation to Assumptions about the Nature of Achievement Variables.
Graham, Darol L.; Bergquist, Constance
Two models were identified for criterion-referenced tests, one based on the assumption of a continuous achievement variable and the other assuming a dichotomous or binary variable. Several test characteristics were examined and contrasted for the two models, including the distribution of scores, establishment of a cutting score, test length, item difficulty, and reporting of test information. In addition, the appropriateness of each model for measuring learning tasks involving verbal information or intellectual skills was discussed. (Author)
