Abstract:

Students at all ability levels can learn to use Valid Confidence Testing materials, they are honest in responding, they have varying degrees of confidence for test questions, and the responses are valid. The average ability students can learn to give these valid responses in a one-hour training session and can learn to score and interpret their responses during a second one-hour session. Once they have been trained, they can take a regular classroom test, score the test and interpret their states of knowledge during a one-hour class period. Valid Confidence Testing can be expected to work in computer assisted instruction both in unit tests, with branching instructional programs, and in the largely unexplored area of sequential testing.
