Example text

To achieve generalization it is necessary to create an item universe that better represents the instructional material (Hively, 1974: 6). One way to generate such a universe is through an "item form," which Hively defined as a list of rules for generating a set of items. An item, in turn, is defined as a "set of instructions telling how to evoke, detect and score a specific bit of human performance. It must include directions for (1) presenting the stimuli, (2) recording the response, and (3) deciding whether or not the response is appropriate" (Hively, 1974: 8).

1) The phrasing of the item is left to the item writer. (2) The closeness with which the item taps the intended behavior is left entirely to the item writer. , they avoid items that are trivial, too complex, too simple, or too wordy. (4) Items produced in the traditional fashion do not necessarily have a logical relation to instruction. Bormuth views these problems as sufficient reasons to reject the traditional approach. He has suggested as a solution the algorithmization of the item-generating process.

If the scores are used to estimate universe scores, then error of measurement, or noise, for the pth testee is defined as that is, the difference between the person's observed score and his universe score. The variance of Dp denoted by s2(Dp) is called the power of the noise. On the other hand, if the person's absolute score is not of interest, but its relative standing within his population is, then the error of measurement is The first term is the pth person's observed deviation score; the second term is the "true" deviation score; their difference is the error of measurement when deviation rather than absolute scores are of interest.
