Introduction

process which examines student response to individual test items/ questions

in order to assess the quality of those items and of the test as a whole. This

test item analysis report is based on a 20 multiple-choice test question

administered to 25 students (see Appendix B). The quality of individual items

is assessed by comparing student’s item responses to their total test scores.

Statistical analysis has been shown to summarize the performance of the test

as a whole (see Appendix A). Three types of graphical representation of

statistical data are also shown in the report (A histogram, frequency polygon,

a normal distribution curve and the Ogive).

The purpose of this report is to disseminate information based on the

descriptive statistics on 20 multiple-choice test items administered to 25

students.

3. Test analysis

Descriptive statistics describes the basic features of the data that is, they

describe what the data shows. They provide simple summaries about the

sample and the measures and present quantitative descriptions in a

manageable form. A set of test scores were considered to calculate the mean,

mode, median and standard deviation, and a normal distribution graph for a

distribution with a mean of 65, a median of 65 and a mode of 65 is drawn (see

Figure 1).

Mean 65.79

Mode 65.00

Median 65.00

STDEV2 479.57

STDEV 21.90

mean, the median and the mode are the same. If the distribution is truly

normal (i.e., bell-shaped), the mean, median, and the mode are all equal to

each other.

The numbers on the x-axis represent the standard deviations from the mean.

The points where there is a change in curvature is one standard deviation on

either side of the mean. Dark blue is less than one standard deviation from

the mean. For the normal distribution, this accounts for about 68% of the set

(dark blue) while two standard deviations from the mean (medium and dark

blue) account for about 95% and three standard deviations (light, medium,

the frequency in a form of a rectangle. The class intervals are marked on the

horizontal axis (X-Axis) and the frequency is marked on the vertical axis (Y-

axis). The intervals are equal; therefore the height of each rectangle is

proportional to the corresponding frequency.

From Figure 3, the middle-values of the class interval of the given data are

plotted against the corresponding frequencies and the points obtained are

joined by straight lines. Points plotted (19, 1), (29, 2), (39, 0), (49, 4), (59, 3),

An Ogive is illustrated by an ‘S’ curve shape (see Figure 4). The graph is

drawn by plotting the points with coordinates having abscissae (X-axis) as

actual limits and ordinates(Y-axis) as the cumulative frequencies, (24,1),

(34,3), (44,3),(54,7), (64,10), (74,16), (84,17), (94,23), and (104,25) are the

coordinates of the points.

The reliability of a test refers to the extent to which the test is likely to produce

consistent scores. It theoretically ranges in value from zero (no reliability) to

1.00 (perfect reliability). The KR20 measures test reliability of inter- item

consistency. A higher value indicates a strong relationship between items on

the test.

From Table 4, it is clear that the KR20 is 1.04 this means that the test is

reliable or has a perfect reliability.

4. Item analysis

the effectiveness of individual test items.

items

Using the questions and results from the test, the degree of difficulty of each

question and the corresponding discrimination index was made (see Table 5

and Table 8).

correctly. It is a measure of how difficult the question was to answer. The

higher the difficulty index, the easier the question is. A value of 1.000 means

that all of the students answered this correct response and this question may

be too easy. If the p-value is greater than 0.75, the item is acceptable and if

the p-value is less than 0, 25, then the item is difficult.

q17 0.63 Acceptable Fine

q18 0.33 Acceptable Fine

q19 0.52 Acceptable Fine

q20 0.64 Acceptable Fine

From the Table, it shows that 35% of the questions (1, 2, 5,11,12,14, and 16)

are unacceptable therefore it means that they were too easy and 65 %( 3, 4,

6, 7, 8, 9,10,13,15,17,18,19, and 20) are acceptable which shows that they

were fine (see Table 6).

The discrimination index was used to measure the ability of items/ questions

to distinguish between the lower and the upper group of students taking the

test (see Table 7).

Upper 15

Lower 10

students who have a high score on the test and those that get a low score on

the test. It is the difference between the percentage of correct responses in

the upper group and the percentage of the correct responses in the lower

group. Calculation procedures have been used to compare item responses to

total test scores using upper and lower level groups of students.

all positive therefore the item’s discrimination ability is adequate. A positive

value for this index means that higher scoring student tended to select the

response more often.

5. Conclusion

8

Since the KR20 is 1.04 which shows that the test is reliable, it means that the

questions of a test tended to “pull together”. Students who answered a given

question correctly were more likely to answer other questions correctly. If a

parallel test were developed by using similar items, the relative scores of

students would show little change.
