Making the Cut in School Districts: Alternative Methods for Setting Cutscores
Giraud, Gerald; Impara, James C.; Buckendahl, Chad
Educational Assessment, v6 n4 p291-304 2000
Two studies examined methods for arriving at cutscores in school districts, including the Angoff (W. Angoff, 1971), borderline, and contrasting groups methods and two new methods, one based on course enrollment and the other based on expert expectations. Results from a 10th grade algebra test and a test of third grade reading show the viability of several methods. (SLD)
