Multiple-choice items

 

Table 2.6, shown first from the Diagnosis menu, shows the average measures from Table 14.3 of the persons choosing each distractor. "m" usually indicates the average measure of persons with missing data. Table 2.6 shows the average ability of the group of examinees who chose each option. Table 2.15 (above) shows the average ability of the people who got an item right and wrong. Table 2.5 (above again) has the right and wrong scoring illustrated with specific MCQ options. If there are more than one correct or incorrect option, only one of each is shown.

Table 2.16 is the same as Table 6, but the options are shown by their scored values, not by their codes in the data.

Polytomous items

 

Tables 2.6 & Table 2.16 plot the observed average person measures from Table 14.3 for each observed category. It reflects how this sample used these categories. The plotted values cannot fall outside the range of the sample. "m" in the plot indicates the average measure of those for whom their observation is missing on this item. This Table is shown first from the Diagnosis pull-down menu.
