Testing and Test Theory: Whither and Whence.
Wainer, Howard
This paper is the transcript of a talk given to those who use test information but who have little technical background in test theory. The concepts of modern test theory are compared with traditional test theory, as well as a probable future test theory. The explanations given are couched within an extended metaphor that allows a full description of the concepts and implications of test theory without utilizing any mathematics. (Author)
