Partial Credit Analysis of Mathematics Items from the Ohio-Off Grade Proficiency Tests.
Dimitrov, Dimiter M.
The Ohio Off-Grade Proficiency Tests help in monitoring students' progress toward Ohio's adapted model courses of study in reading, mathematics, citizenship, science, and writing. The purpose of this study was to provide item response theory (IRT) parameter estimates and descriptive statistics of the scoring categories of the short-response items (SRI) and extended response items (ERI) of the Ohio Off-Grade Proficiency Test-Mathematics. It also aims to provide information about the interactive roles of Ability, Type of Item Response, Gender, and Race, in student performance by using both multiple-choice and partial credit scores in determining student ability levels. Fifth-graders (n=4830) from a large urban area in northeast Ohio participated in the study. Results indicate that Gender did not play a significant role whereas with regard to factor Race, there were significant differences in student scores. Contains 19 references. (ASK)
