Low Examinee Effort in Low-Stakes Assessment: Problems and Potential Solutions
Wise, Steven L.; DeMars, Christine E.
Educational Assessment, v10 n1 p1-17 2005
Student test-taking motivation in low-stakes assessment testing is examined in terms of both its relationship to test performance and the implications of low student effort for test validity. A theoretical model of test-taking motivation is presented, with a synthesis of previous research indicating that low student motivation is associated with a substantial decrease in test performance. A number of assessment practices and data analytic procedures for managing the problems posed by low student motivation are discussed.
