Abstract

Two versions of the Nedelsky procedure for setting minimum passing scores are compared. Two groups of judges, one using each version, set passing scores for a classroom test Comparisons of the resulting sets of passing scores are made on the basis of (1) the raw distributions of passing scores, (2) the consistency of pass-fail decisions between the two versions, (3) the consistency of pass-fail decisions between each version and the passing score established by the test designer, and (4) the mean pairwise agreement between judges across groups. The two versions of the procedure are found to produce essentially equivalent results. In addition, a significant relationship is observed between the passing score set by a judge and that judge’s level of achievement in the content area of the test.
