A COMPARATIVE STUDY OF TWO STANDARD-SETTING TECHNIQUES
Abstract:This study compares the Angoff method (1971) for setting standards with the Ebel method (1972), using a test in introductory psychology. Although results showed a significant difference in the minimum passing score obtained through these methods, results also showed strong evidence of agreement between both methods about the number of students classified as pass/fail. The Angoff method tended to be more stringent and produce a higher minimum passing score than the Ebel method.
