Pagination or Media Count:
The report describes a computerized item selection program called SEQUIN. The program can be used to determine if the number of items of a test can be reduced without practically reducing certain desirable psychometric properties of the test such as validity and internal consistency reliability. Applications of the program indicate that, in certain cases, the number of items can be substantially reduced with an increase in validity. This means then it is potentially very profitable to use such procedures as SEQUIN to analyze tests and testing programs. Author
