Testing at Higher Taxonomic Levels: Are We Jeopardizing Reliability by Increasing the Emphasis on Complexity?
Clements, Andrea D.; Rothenberg, Lori
Research in the Schools, v3 n1 p45-50 Spr 1996
Undergraduate psychology examinations from 48 schools were analyzed to determine the proportion of items at each level of Bloom's Taxonomy, item format, and test length. Analyses indicated significant relationships between item complexity and test length even when taking format into account. Use of higher items may be related to shorter tests, jeopardizing reliability. (SLD)
