Estimation of Test Length for Domain-Referenced Reading Comprehension Tests.
Berk, Ronald A.
Journal of Experimental Education, v48 n3 p188-93 Spr 1980
A sampling methodology is proposed for determining lengths of tests designed to assess the comprehension of written discourse. It is based on Bormuth's transformational analysis, within a domain-referenced framework. Guidelines are provided for computing sample size and selecting sentences to which the transformational rules can be applied. (Author/GDC)
