Techniques for Analyzing Test Response Data.
Harris, Chester W.
Achievement tests which are specifically linked to an instructional program and have been developed in relation to an objectives base and/or to an item generation rule are considered, as well as student response data. Three types of studies are outlined and the kind of procedures thought useful illustrated. As various methods for examining stability, equivalence, and sensitivity to instruction of both test items and test scores are examined, an effort is made to coordinate sampling procedure and experimental design, choice of statistic, and method of aggregating the statistic so as to provide generalizations for the pool of items or the universe of test scores.
