Educational and Psychological Measurement, 36, 2, 259-62, Sum 76
Previous knowledge of the difficulty index and the intercorrelations of the items will allow group results to be predicted and manipulated. A compound bionomial probability function of a testscore is established for which a computer program has been written. Three item selections and the appropriate probability distributions are given which give an illustration. (Author/RC)
