Test Maker Counseling Matrix - RMS
The test maker view of a right mark scored (RMS) test is based on item difficulty (%), discrimination ability (A,B,C,D), and item performance (mastery, unfinished, and discriminating).
There is no right mark score (RMS) test taker student counseling matrix as students have no vote on which items to select for their individualized test.
This is a traditional item analysis plus a ranking based on how the item performed on the test. For example, two items have a difficult of 50%. One is unfinished (the entire class is having trouble, or there is a problem with the item or instruction). The other ranks at the highest for discrimination ability (one group knows or can do something that the rest in the class do not know or cannot do).
Students of all abilities missed the first item; mainly lower scoring students missed the second.
