Local Option Competency Testing: Psychometric Issues with Mildly Handicapped and Educationally Marginal Students.
Balow, Irving H.; And Others
Learning Disabilities Research, v2 n1 p32-37 Fall 1986
Psychometric issues arising from the use of minimum competency tests in local option states were examined in seven school districts. The effect of variability in reliability and difficulty level of subtests on the accuracy of decisions based on such tests is questioned, particularly as they affect mildly handicapped and marginal students.
