Wang, Wen-Chung; Huang, Sheng-Yun – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2011
The one-parameter logistic model with ability-based guessing (1PL-AG) has been recently developed to account for effect of ability on guessing behavior in multiple-choice items. In this study, the authors developed algorithms for computerized classification testing under the 1PL-AG and conducted a series of simulations to evaluate their…

Fehrmann, Melinda L.; And Others – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1991
Two frame-of-reference rater training approaches were compared for effects on reliability and accuracy of cutoff scores generated by 21 raters using Angoff methods on tests taken by 155 undergraduates. Both approaches result in higher interrater reliability and more accuracy than does a non-frame-of-reference method. (SLD)

Zimmerman, Donald W. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1985
A computer program simulated guessing on multiple-choice test items and calculated deviation IQ's from observed scores which contained a guessing component. Extensive variability in deviation IQ's due entirely to chance was found. (Author/LMO)

Wilcox, Rand R. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1981
A formal framework is presented for determining which of the distractors of multiple-choice test items has a small probability of being chosen by a typical examinee. The framework is based on a procedure similar to an indifference zone formulation of a ranking and election problem. (Author/BW)

Linn, Robert L. – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1976
Testing procedures which involve testees assigning probabilities of correctness to all multiple choice alternatives is examined. Two basic assumptions in these procedures are reviewed. Empirical examinee response data are examined and it is suggested that these assumptions should not be taken lightly in empirical studies of personal probability…

Dyck, Walter; Plancke-Schuyten, Gilberte – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 1976
Previous knowledge of the difficulty index and the intercorrelations of the items will allow group results to be predicted and manipulated. A compound bionomial probability function of a testscore is established for which a computer program has been written. Three item selections and the appropriate probability distributions are given which give…
