In This Chapter
This chapter describes the process of creating valid and defensible criterion-referenced tests—tests that measure the performance of an individual against a standard of competency. This chapter will enable you to
- distinguish between norm-referenced and criterion-referenced tests
- describe the basic steps in designing a criterion-referenced test
- use the decision table to estimate the number of items to include on a criterion-referenced test
- use the Angoff technique to set the cut-off score for a criterion-referenced test.
