Effects of Incorporating Humor in Test Items.
McMorris, Robert F.; And Others
Journal of Educational Measurement, v22 n2 p147-55 Sum 1985
Two matched forms of a 50 item grammar test were developed. Twenty items designed to be humorous were included in one form. Inclusion of humorous items did not affect grammar scores on matched humorous/nonhumorous items, nor on commmon post-treatment items. Inclusion did not affect results of anxiety measures.
