Defining Prose Task Characteristics for Use in Computer-Adaptive Testing and Instruction.
Mosenthal, Peter B.
American Educational Research Journal, v35 n2 p269-307 Sum 1998
The extent to which variables from a previous study (P. Mosenthal, 1996) on document processing influenced difficulty on 165 tasks from the pose scales of five national adult literacy scales was studied. Three process variables accounted for 78% of the variance when prose task difficulty was defined using level scores. Implications for computer adaptive testing are considered. (SLD)
