Validity and Reliability of True-False Tests.
Grosse, Martin E.; Wright, Benjamin D.
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v45 n1 p1-13 Spr 1985
A model of examinee behavior was used to generate hypotheses about the operation of true-false scores. Confirmation of hypotheses supported the contention that true-false scores contain an error component that makes these tests less reliable than multiple-choice tests. Examinee response style may invalidate a total true-false score. (Author/DWH)
