Validity Studies of UT Austin Tests for Use in Credit by Examination in "Cellular and Molecular Biology" (BIO 302) and "Structure and Function of Organisms" (BIO 303) Summer 1991.
Bene, Nancy H.; And Others
The Measurement and Evaluation Center conducted two validity studies designed to determine the test scores to be used by the Division in making decisions about credit by examination at the University of Texas Austin (UT Austin) in Biology 302, Cellular and Molecular Biology, and Biology 303, Structure and Function of Organisms. Seventy-nine summer-term students in Biology 302 took the UT Austin Test for Credit in Biology as part of their final examination. In Biology 303, Structure and Function of Organisms, 68 students took the UT Austin Test for Credit. Analysis of these results and course grades for students resulted in a recommendation that 31 be the decision score for students in the C range in Biology 302 and that 39 be the decision score for students in the C range in Biology 303. Scores for A and B grades are also recommended for each test. Seven tables present scores and findings. (SLD)
