Mr. Charcos, an elementary teacher in Science, administered a quarterly assessment for his grade 5 science in two sections. The mean of Sections A and B are 25 respectively. The standard deviation of A is 1.25 while B is 3. Which of the two sections is more dispersed?

A. Section A

B. Section B

C. Both A and B

D. Can’t be determined

B. The scores in Section B are more dispersed than in Section A because the standard deviation of Section B = 3 is larger than the standard deviation of A = 1.25.

B. One standard deviation above the mean.

C. Two standard deviations below the mean.

A. No. 10

B. No. 11 & 13

C. No. 12

D. No. 14

A. Item number 1 will be retained because it is within the acceptable level of difficulty and level of discrimination.

Mr. Cruz a professor in Assessment of Learning conducted item analysis in his test for Chapter III. He found cut that 5 of his items have the following difficulty and discrimination indicates above:

Which of the following item above should be revised from his pool of items?

A. No. 10

B. No. 11 & 13

C. No. 12

D. No. 14

B. Item number 11 and 13 will be revised. The level of difficulty is within the acceptable level, but the discrimination level is within the low positive level.

Mr. Cruz a professor in Assessment of Learning conducted item analysis in his test for Chapter III. He found cut that 5 of his items have the following difficulty and discrimination indicates above:

Which of the following item above should be discarded from his pool of items?

A. No. 10

B. No. 11 & 13

C. No. 12 only

D. No. 12 and 14

D. Item no. 12 and 14 will be discarded from the pool of items because item 12 is very difficult item and with negative discrimination index at the same time. The discrimination index of item 14 is negative.

Given the following scores: 88, 83, 83, 87, 88, 80, 80, 76, 81, 83, and 84. What does 83 in the score distribution imply?

A. Mode

B. Median

C. Median and Mode

D. Mean, Median, and Mode

D. 83 represents the Mean, Median and Mode. (Mean = 913/11 = 83. Arrange the scores from lowest to highest 76, 80, 80, 81, 83, 83, 83, 84, 87, 88, 88, the mean = 83 and 83 occurred three times: hence, it is also mode.)

Which of the following groups of score distribution is the most spread?

A. sd = 2.5

B. sd = 2.75

C. sd = 3.00

D. sd = 3.25

D. The most spread is a score distribution with the highest standard deviation. The less spread will be the score distribution with the smallest standard deviation that is A.

In a normal distribution, which of the following statements below is TRUE?

A. The mean, and median are equal but not equal to mode.

B. There are more scores at the upper end of the distribution.

C. There are more scores at the lower portion of the distribution.

D. More students got with average scores and few with low and high scores.

D. In a normal distribution about 68.26% of the scores lies within the average area, few score at lower and upper areas.
