# Multiple Choice

This activity contains 10 questions.

## The test record form is called the

 stimulus materials response booklet protocol scoring guide

## Items given to acquaint students with the types of questions and responses expected in the test are called

 basals demonstration items ceilings none of the above

## What is the name of the point in the test at which it can be assumed that the student would receive full credit for all easier items?

 starting point basal ceiling range of performance

## Which types of scores are best for comparing students with the norming group?

 age-equivalent scores percentile scores grade-equivalent scores all of the above

## Which statement is false?

 Test scores always contain some element of error. The standard error of measurement is based on the test's reliability and standard deviation. A student's true score always falls within the confidence interval around observed scores. A tester can choose different levels of confidence intervals from 68% confidence to 90% confidence, or even higher.

## A student earns a standard score of 83 on a test, with a standard error of measurement of 6 standard score units. Which of the following is the most appropriate conclusion?

 The student's score is reported with the range of standard scores 77–89, with a probability of 90% that the true score lies within that range. The student's score is reported with the range of standard scores 80–86, with a probability of 68% that the true score lies within that range. The student's score is reported with the range of standard scores 77–89, with a probability of 68% that the true score lies within that range. The student's score is reported with the range of standard scores 80–86, with a probability of 99% that the true score lies within that range.

## When the standard error of measure increases, the confidence interval

 increases decreases stays the same becomes more precise

## According to the textbook, if a test's mean is 80 and its standard deviation is 5, how would you classify a score of 93?

 high average above average average low average
