Standard Setting

Setting Pass Scores

75 Minutes

Mar 3rd, 1:00 PM Central Time

One of the more politically charged questions is "what is good enough?"   Standard setting is about answering this question.  There are numerous methods, and each has its tradeoffs.  This session explains and compares the more frequently used methods seven based on expert conjecture and performance data.

This is the third topic in the six-part Analytics & Psychometric Series.   Other topics in the series are: Psychometric Basics, Controlling Error, Standard Setting and Pass Scores, and Analyzing Quantitative Data and Qualitative Data.

Objectives:  You will be able to:

  1. Explain the difference between conjecture and data-based methods.
  2. Compare the processes for setting standards and pass scores
Materials:  You will receive a workbook and a QC guide containing job aids you can adapt to your situation.

Cost: $79, discounts are available to ISPI members, and Hale Center Professional Members.
