Statistical Modelling of Multiple-Choice and True/False Tests: Ways of Considering, and of Reducing, the Uncertainties Attributable To Guessing.
Burton, Richard F.; Miller, David J.
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v24 n4 p399- 411 Dec 1999
Discusses statistical procedures for increasing test unreliability due to guessing in multiple choice and true/false tests. Proposes two new measures of test unreliability: one concerned with resolution of defined levels of knowledge and the other with the probability of examinees being incorrectly ranked. Both models are based on the binomial probability function. The model is appended. (DB)
