Abstract:

This report presents a concrete realization of an admissible probability measurement procedure utilizing a computer-driven scope and light pen. This particular technique is appropriate for all multiple-choice type of testing. Empirical results are reported from an analogous pencil-and-paper realization of the same admissible probability measurement procedure. These results indicate a marked superiority for admissible probability measurement over traditional multiple-choice testing. It is suggested that further gains can be obtained by using admissible probability measurement procedures to sequentially test the scope of knowledge of a student.
