Summary

This paper reports the results of using several alternative methods of setting cut scores. The methods used were: (1) a variation of the Angoff method (1971); (2) a variation of the borderline group method; and (3) an advanced impact method (G. Dillon, 1996). The results discussed are from studies undertaken to set the cut scores for fourth grade reading and mathematics in a public school system. Twenty-two elementary school teachers served as judges. The three methods tended to result in similar cut scores with certain predictable variations. When the cut score was set in the lower tail of the distribution, the Angoff method tended to result in a cut score that was lower than the cut score set using the borderline group method. Recommendations are made for supplementing the Angoff method with additional data from alternative methods to improve the appropriateness of this method when setting performance standards in school settings.
