Summary

In the specific methods of standard setting in testing, judgments about individuals being tested, contrasting groups being tested, and judgments about the test items are discussed. In judgments about individual test-takers, assumptions are presented based on the knowledge and skills the test is intended to measure, the test-takers' skills at the time of testing and the true opinions of the test judges. Concerning contrasting groups of test-takers a hypothetical problem in the different distributions of a representative sample of test scores from the full population is presented. The assumptions based on judgments about test items considers the groups of people who can set standards in a meaningful way. The response analysis methodologies of Nedelsky, Angoff and Edel are discussed. A table illustrates the score distribution problem. (CM)
