Friedman, Miriam; And Others
Medical Teacher, v9 n3 p333-41 1987
Test performances of sophomore medical students on a pretest and final exam (under guessing and no-guessing instructions) were compared. Discouraging random guessing produced test information with improved test reliability and less distortion of item difficulty. More able examinees were less compliant than less able examinees.
