This article describes a method for identifying and reporting unexpectedly high or low subscores by comparing each examinee’s observed subscore with a discrete probability distribution of subscores conditional on the examinee’s overall ability.

Handbook of Automated Scoring

 

In this chapter we describe the historical background that led to development of the simulations and the subsequent refinement of the construct that occurred as the interface was being developed. We then describe the evolution of the automated scoring procedures from linear regression modeling to rule-based procedures.

This article proposes the conscious weight method and subconscious weight method to bring more objectivity to the standard setting process. To do this, these methods quantify the relative harm of the negative consequences of false positive and false negative misclassification.

This paper investigates the effect of a change in the United States Medical Licensing Examination Step 1 timing on Step 2 Clinical Knowledge (CK) scores, the effect of lag time on Step 2 CK performance, and the relationship of incoming Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) score to Step 2 CK performance pre and post change.

This handbook provides an overview of major developments around diagnostic classification models (DCMs) with regard to modeling, estimation, model checking, scoring, and applications. It brings together not only the current state of the art, but also the theoretical background and models developed for diagnostic classification.

This informative graphic reports between‐individual information where a vertical line—with dashed lines on either side indicating an error band—spans three graphics allowing a student to easily see their score relative to four defined performance categories and, more notably, three relevant score distributions.
