A Simulation Study of Reliability and Validity of Multiple-Choice Test Scores Under Six Response-Scoring Modes.
Frary, Robert B.
Journal of Educational Statistics, v7 n4 p333-51 Win 1982
Six different approaches to scoring test data, including number right, correction for guessing, and answer-until-correct, were investigated using Monte Carlo techniques. Modes permitting multiple response showed higher internal consistency, but there was little difference among modes for a validity measure. (JKS)
