A Comparison of Difficulty and Discrimination Values of Selected True-False Item Types.
Barker, Douglas; Ebel, Robert L.
Contemporary Educational Psychology, v7 n1 p35-40 Jan 1982
Two forms of an undergraduate examination were constructed. Tests varied with respect to item truth value (true, false) and method of phrasing (positive, negative). Negatively stated items were more difficult but not more discriminating than positively stated items. False items were not more difficult but were more discriminating than true items. (Author/RD)
