The SpeedExam Approach:

  • Exam must be created under one minute. It should be as easy as Get-Set-Go.

Two way to create your exams.
  • Group based exams (Candidate registration / account required)
  • Link based exams (Registration / account not required)

Item Analysis - Difficulty (p value) and Discrimination (d value)

After creating your exam questions and give your test, how can you be sure that the questions are appropriate -- not too difficult and not too easy? How will you know if the exam effectively differentiates between candidates who do good on the overall exam and those who did not?

To determine the difficulty level of exam questions, a measure called the Difficulty Index is used. This measure asks administrators to calculate the proportion of candidates who answered the exam question accurately. By looking at each alternative (for multiple choice), we can also find out if there are answer choices that should be replaced. For example, let's say you gave a multiple choice exam and there were four answer choices (A, B, C, and D). The following table illustrates how many candidates selected each answer choice for Question #1 and #2.

Question A B C D
#1 0 3 24* 3
#2 12* 13 3 2
* Denotes correct answer.

For Question #1, we can see that A was not a very good distractor -- no one selected that answer. We can also compute the difficulty of the question by dividing the number of candidates who choose the correct answer (24) by the number of total candidates (30). Using this formula, the difficulty of Question #1 (referred to as p) is equal to 24/30 or .80. A rough "rule-of-thumb" is that if the question difficulty is more than .75, it is an easy question; if the difficulty is below .25, it is a difficult question. Given these parameters, this question could be regarded moderately easy -- lots (80%) of candidates got it correct. In contrast, Question #2 is much more difficult (12/30 = .40). In fact, on Question #2, more candidates selected an incorrect answer (B) than selected the correct answer (A). This question should be carefully analyzed to ensure that B is an appropriate distractor.

Another measure, the Discrimination Index, refers to how well an assessment differentiates between high and low scorers. In other words, you should be able to expect that the high-performing candidates would select the correct answer for each question more often than the low-performing candidates. If this is true, then the assessment is said to have a positive discrimination index (between 0 and 1) -- indicating that candidates who received a high total score chose the correct answer for a specific question more often than the candidates who had a lower overall score. If, however, you find that more of the low-performing candidates got a specific questions correct, then the question has a negative discrimination index (between -1 and 0). Let's look at an example.

Table 2 displays the results of ten questions on a exam. Note that the candidates are arranged with the top overall scorers at the top of the table.

Candidate Total Score (%) Questions
1 2 3
Daniel Miller 90 1 0 1
Helen King 90 1 0 1
Paul Nelson 80 0 0 1
Margaret Carter 80 1 0 1
Donald Parker 70 1 0 1
Lisa Edwards 60 1 0 0
Kenneth Miller 60 1 0 1
Nancy Roberts 50 1 1 0
George Moore 50 1 1 0
Sandra Parker 40 0 1 0
"1" indicates the answer was correct; "0" indicates it was incorrect.

Follow these steps to determine the Difficulty Index and the Discrimination Index.

  1. fter the candidates are arranged with the highest overall scores at the top, count the number of candidates in the upper and lower group who got each question correct. For Question #1, there were 4 candidates in the top half who got it correct, and 4 candidates in the bottom half.
  2. Determine the Difficulty Index by dividing the number who got it correct by the total number of candidates. For Question #1, this would be 8/10 or p=.80.
  3. Determine the Discrimination Index by subtracting the number of candidates in the lower group who got the question correct from the number of candidates in the upper group who got the question correct. Then, divide by the number of candidates in each group (in this case, there are five in each group). For Question #1, that means you would subtract 4 from 4, and divide by 5, which results in a Discrimination Index of 0.
  4. The answers for Questions 1-3 are provided in Table 2.
Question # Correct (Upper group) # Correct (Lower group) Difficulty (p) Discrimination (D)
Question 1 4 4 .80 0
Question 2 0 3 .30 -0.6
Question 3 5 1 .60 0.8

Now that we have the table filled in, what does it mean? We can see that Question #2 had a difficulty index of .30 (meaning it was quite difficult), and it also had a negative discrimination index of -0.6 (meaning that the low-performing candidates were more likely to get this question correct). This question should be carefully analyzed, and probably deleted or changed. Our "best" overall question is Question 3, which had a moderate difficulty level (.60), and discriminated extremely well (0.8).
