Estimating the Optimum Number of Options per Item Using an Incremental Option Paradigm.
Trevisan, Michael S.; And Others
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v54 n1 p86-91 Spr 1994
The reliabilities of 2-, 3-, 4-, and 5-choice tests were compared through an incremental-option model on a test taken by 154 high school seniors. Creating the test forms incrementally more closely approximates actual test construction. The nonsignificant differences among the option choices support the three-option item. (SLD)
