Abstract:

Three pyramidal adaptive tests and a conventional peaked test were constructed and administered by time-shared computer to two separate groups of students enrolled in undergraduate psychology courses. Six different methods of scoring pyramidal tests were evaluated with respect to score distributions, stability, and the degree of relationship among scoring methods and between pyramidal scoring methods and scores on the conventional test. The effects of memory were also considered. Modified author abstract
