Abstract:

Multiple choice tests designed to assess individual differences in achievement in various training situations are in common usage in the Navy. Most test scoring machines are designed to score test items with four or fewer response alternatives. Often, however, it is desirable to include a wider gamut of choices to evaluate differences in response to a particular content area tapped by the test item. This paper describes a straight-forward method of preparing scoring templates for the IBM-805 Test Scoring Machine to provide cumulative scores from 10-choice differentially weighted response alternatives.
