Journal of Career and Technical Education, v22 n1 p31-41 Fall 2005
The purposes of this study were to determine if there is a significant difference in postsecondary business student scores and test completion time based on settable test item exposure control interface format, and to determine if there is a significant difference in student scores and test completion time based on settable test item exposure control interface format by gender. Results of the study indicate that there is no significant difference in postsecondary business student scores or test completion times based on settable test item exposure control interface format. When the variable gender was added, female postsecondary business students were found to achieve significantly higher test scores and to have significantly faster test completion times. Effect size and descriptive statistic analysis suggests that these differences by gender are too small to be of much practical difference.
