HyperCard test engine using Rasch Analysis
Brown, Andrew R. (1993) HyperCard test engine using Rasch Analysis. In Lo, Bruce (Ed.) Reaching out with I.T. : Proceedings of the 10th Annual Conference of the Australian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education, Australian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education, Lismore, pp. 65-71.
This paper will focus on the development of an interactive test engine using Rasch analysis of item responses for question selection and reporting of results. The Rasch analysis is used to determine student ability and question difficulty. This model is widely used in the preparation of paper-based tests and has been the subject of particular use and development at the Australian Council for Education Research (ACER). This paper presents an overview of an interactive implementation of the Rasch analysis model in HyperCard, where student ability estimates are generated 'on the fly' and question difficulty values updated from time to time. The student ability estimates are used to determine question selection and are the basis of scoring and reporting schemes.
