Determining the Length of Multiple Choice Criterion-Referenced Tests When an Answer-Until-Correct Scoring Procedure Is Used.
Wilcox, Rand R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1982
When determining criterion-referenced test length, problems of guessing are shown to be more serious than expected. A new method of scoring is presented that corrects for guessing without assuming that guessing is random. Empirical investigations of the procedure are examined. Test length can be substantially reduced. (Author/CM)

The Single Administration Estimate of the Proportion of Agreement of a Proficiency Test Scored with a Latent Structure Model.
Wilcox, Rand R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1981
This paper describes and compares procedures for estimating the reliability of proficiency tests that are scored with latent structure models. Results suggest that the predictive estimate is the most accurate of the procedures. (Author/BW)
