The Use of Item Analysis for Improvement of Biochemical Teaching
Nagata, Ryoichi
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, v32 n3 p167-169 May 2004
Item analysis was used to find out which biochemical explanations need to be improved in biochemical teaching, not which items are to be discarded, improved, or reusable in biochemical examinations. The analysis revealed the basic facts of which less able students had more misunderstanding than able students. Identifying these basic facts helps biochemistry teachers to improve their teaching.
