Sotaridona, Leonardo S.; Meijer, Rob R.
Journal of Educational Measurement, v39 n2 p115-32 Sum 2002
Studied the statistical properties of the K-index (P. Holland, 1996) that can be used to detect copying behavior on a test through a simulation study of the use of the K-statistic with small, medium, and large datasets. Also compared the Type I error rate and detection rate of this index with those of the copying index (J. Wollack, 1997). Discusses conditions for the use of each index. (SLD)
