Departmental Bulletin Paper A Placement Test Revisited : An ongoing validation study of one university’s test


48pp.55 - 65 , 2015-12 , 広島国際学院大学
This report continues an examination of the validity of a placement test used to stream first-year students at a Japanese university. In response to a previous report (Tennant, 2013), revisions were made to the test. The results of the most recent cohort of students are statistically analyzed to ensure that the revisions made have improved the validity of the test. The current analysis employs methods from both classical test theory and item response theory. The report concludes with some suggestions for possible further analysis and revisions.
