Assessment of Computerized Placement Test for College Mathematics at Baltimore City Community College
Mekonnen, Adugna; Reznichenko, Nataliya
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Eastern Educational Research Association (EERA) (Clearwater, FL, Feb 2007)
Today's college ACCUPLACER System's Computerized Placement Test (CPT) plays a major role for determining whether post-secondary students are ready for placement into Arithmetic, Elementary Algebra, Intermediate Algebra, or College Mathematics courses. It is widely used in most college systems in the U.S. This paper discusses some of the issues to be addressed about the assessment and evaluation of CPT such as analyzing the reliability of the test scores and evaluating the validity of CPT. The results of this study suggest that the reliability (or correlation) between Arithmetic and Elementary Algebra test scores is less than Elementary Algebra and College Mathematics test scores. Additional sample data are appended. (Contains 6 tables and 2 figures.)
