Passage
A psychologist wanted to develop a numerical ability test for the student population. She wrote eighty multiple choice items, each item with five alternatives. The item analysis was carried out by finding discrimination index and itemremainder correlation for each item. Sixty items were retained in item analysis.
The new version, with finally retained sixty items was administered to a new sample (N = 400) twice with a time gap of eight weeks. The testretest correlation was found to be 0.22, significant at. 01 level. The data obtained at the first administration of the sixty item version was also used for computing splithalf reliability. The correlation between scores based on odd items and the scores based on even items was found to be 0.60. The splithalf reliability coefficient was obtained after applying SpearmanBrown correction.
The scores obtained by the students were correlated with their marks in Mathematics in their annual examination which took place three months after the data collection. The productmoment correlation of 0.6 was obtained between test scores and mathematics. Norms were developed for the test. The normative sample yielded a mean of 40 and standard deviation of 8. The data were found to be normally distributed. As norms, percentile ranks were obtained.
