marking of paper 1 and paper 2

4 posts in this topic

New format of the examination that paper 1 and 2 is going to be marked by Angleoff method as outlined on the rcpsych website. Could I ask anyone who knows what this method is and how is going to be? Would it have any set passing marks?

Thanks

or

The Angoff method, which was developed by the late ETS Distinguished

Research Scientist William Angoff, is a widely used method for informing

the determinations of passing scores on many types of tests. In the case

of the use of SAT II tests in the evaluation of college admissions

applications of home school students, the Angoff Method will be used to

inform the Georgia Board of Regents' setting of passing scores.

To begin the process, panels of experts (high school teachers in the

subjects tested) are convened to review samples of test questions in

subjects to be tested. Panelists are instructed to imagine students whom

they have taught and who have completed the associated CRC course with the

previously established 'minimum' level 'C' grade; they are given the

opportunity to discuss students in this range to firm up their conceptions.

Then they are asked to estimate, for each question in the sample, the

percentage of students at that grade level who would be expected to answer

the question correctly. Estimates are summed and averaged to determine the

score on the particular test which may be interpreted as associated with

the 'C' level of knowledge in that subject.

In arriving at passing score decisions for each of the SAT II tests, the

Board of Regents will use the score produced by the Angoff Method together

with other relevant information available to it (such as previously

established standards and a statistical concept known as 'Standard Error of

Measurement') to assure the appropriateness and fairness of the passing

scores to be used.'
