Choosing Minimum Passing Scores by Stochastic Approximation Techniques.
Livingston, Samuel A.
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v40 n4 p859-73 Win 1980
A specified minimum performance level can be translated into a minimum passing score for the written test by measuring the performance of students whose written test scores are near the desired cutoff score. Stochastic approximation methods accomplish this purpose. The up-and-down method and the Robbins-Monro process are compared. (Author/RL)
