A Model-Based Method for Content Validation of Automatically Generated Test Items
Zhang, Xinxin; Gierl, Mark
Journal of Educational Issues, v2 n2 p184-202 2016
The purpose of this study is to describe a methodology to recover the item model used to generate multiple-choice test items with a novel graph theory approach. Beginning with the generated test items and working backward to recover the original item model provides a model-based method for validating the content used to automatically generate test items. The methodology is demonstrated using items from a content area in medicine.
