# CI 152 Assessment 5

### Standard Setting

Question | Answer |
---|---|

What are three standard-setting models? | Nedelsky Method, Ebel Method, Angoff Method |

What do standard-setting models do? | They allow one to determine the standard for a particular assessment instrument. |

The Nedelsky, Ebel, and Angoff Methods only INDICATE what? | the minimum passing score |

The Nedelsky, Ebel, and Angoff Methods require that one ESTIMATE what? | what the "minimally competent student" knows |

The Nedelsky method is for what type of tests only? | multiple choice |

Nedelsky Method peg words: | # recognized not correct, remaining choices, reciprocal of remaining, decimal equivalent, sum of decimal equivalents, round up |

What two things does the Ebel method evaluate? | item difficulty and content importance |

What types of tests can the Ebel method be used for? | any test using objectively-scored items |

What are the three categories for "difficulty"? | easy, moderate, difficult |

What are the three categories for "importance"? | critical, important, relevant |

Ebel Method: what does one use to reflect the "difficulty" and "importance" categories? | a 3x3 matrix |

What is the first step in the Ebel Method after you draw your matrix? | classify each item according to difficulty and importance |

What is the second step in the Ebel Method? | estimate the probability that a minimally competent person would score the items in each category |

What are the probability rages in the Ebel method? | 0 (learners would miss ALL items in this cell) up to 1.0 (learners will perform these items correctly) |

What is the third step in the Ebel Method? | multiply the number of items in each cell by the associated probability |

What is the fourth step in the Ebel Method? | add up the products in each cell and round the total up to the next whole number (this becomes your standard) |

Can the Angoff Method be used on any test with objectively-scored items? | yes |

Angoff Method first step: | list all of the items on the test |

Angoff Method second step: | items you expect the learner would know as CORRECT indicate a "1" |

Angoff Method third step: | items you expect the learner would NOT know the correct answer to indicate a "0" |

Angoff Method fourth step: | add up all the "1"s to get the standard |
