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, v42 n3 p789-94 Fall 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)
