Attitudinal and Interpretive Influences on Difficulty Ratings in Setting Standards for High School Minimum Competency Tests.
Secolsky, Charles
Journal of Educational Research, v80 n4 p227-32 Mar-Apr 1987
Examination of 99 mathematics teachers' ratings of item difficulty indicated that the ratings were influenced by the teachers' attitudes and characteristics and their interpretation of the skills measured by the items. Teachers who rated items as relatively easy tended to favor tougher standards, grade students in relation to other students, and interpret items in terms of more general skills. (Author/CB)
