A Comparison of Two Multiple-Choice Test Formats for Assessing English Structure Competence.
Chung, Jing-mei
Foreign Language Annals, v30 n1 p111-22 Spr 1997
Uses item analysis techniques to compare two multiple-choice test formats for assessing second language students' competence in English structure in terms of mean scores, item difficulty, and item discrimination. Findings reveal that difficulty and discrimination aspects are item-specific rather than format-dependent and items with moderate difficulty indices have better discrimination power.
