2011 metų užsienio kalbos (anglų) valstybinio brandos egzamino rezultatų statistinė analizė
Valstybinio brandos egzamino vertinimas yra norminis: kiekvieno mokinio pasiekimai lyginami su kitų laikiusiųjų šį egzaminą pasiekimais. Valstybinio brandos egzamino įvertinimas yra šimtabalės skalės skaičius nuo 1 iki 100. Šis skaičius apytiksliai rodo, kurią egzaminą išlaikiusių kandidatų dalį (procentais) mokinys pralenkė. Minimalus išlaikyto valstybinio brandos egzamino įvertinimas yra 1 (vienas) balas, maksimalus – 100 balų. Šie balai į dešimtbalės skalės paţymį nėra verčiami. Jie įrašomi į kandidato brandos atestato priedą kaip valstybinio brandos egzamino įvertinimai. Kandidatų surinktų egzamino uţduoties taškų ir jų įvertinimo uţsienio kalbos (anglų) valstybinio brandos egzamino balais sąryšis pateiktas 2 diagramoje.

Statistinei analizei atlikti atsitiktinai buvo atrinkta 400 kandidatų darbų. Apibendrinus informaciją, esančią atrinktuose darbuose, kiekvienam uţduoties klausimui (ar jo daliai, jei jis buvo sudarytas iš struktūrinių dalių) buvo nustatyta: kuri dalis kandidatų pasirinko atitinkamą atsakymą (jei klausimas buvo su pasirenkamaisiais atsakymais) ar surinko atitinkamą skaičių taškų (0, 1, 2 ir t. t.); klausimo sunkumas. Šį parametrą išreiškia toks santykis: (visų kandidatų uţ šį klausimą surinktų taškų suma) (visų uţ šį klausimą teoriškai galimų surinkti taškų suma) Jei klausimas buvo vertinamas vienu tašku, tai jo sunkumas tiesiogiai parodo, kuri dalis kandidatų į tą klausimą atsakė teisingai;
