How do you set appropriate pass/fail scores for competency tests?
We learned a lot about this during this year’s Questionmark Users Conference from two customers who have used the Angoff method for setting cut scores and think it’s a practical answer to this question.
Alan H. Wheaton and James R. Parry, who are involved respectively in curriculum management and test development for a large government agency, regard the Angoff method as a systematic,effective approach to establishing pass/fail scores for advancement tests. They will share their experiences and lessons learned during a Questionmark Customers Online webinar at 1 p.m. Eastern Time on Thursday, May 31.
