Forsyth, Robert A.; Spratt, Kevin F.
Journal of Educational Measurement, v17 n1 p31-43 Spr 1980
The effects of two item formats on item difficulty and item discrimination indices for mathematics problem solving multiple-choice tests were investigated. One format required identifying the proper "set-up" for the item; the other format required complete solving of the item. (Author/JKS)
