Correcting Grade Deflation Caused by Multiple-Choice Scoring.
Baranchik, Alvin; Cherkas, Barry
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v31 n3 p371-80 May-Jun 2000
Presents a study involving three sections of pre-calculus (n=181) at four-year college where partial credit scoring on multiple-choice questions was examined over an entire semester. Indicates that grades determined by partial credit scoring seemed more reflective of both the quantity and quality of student knowledge than grades determined by either traditional percentage correct scoring or any corrective curving.
