Instructions for Questions 46 to 50:

Read the following paragraph and answer the five questions which follow:

A researcher working in the area of human intelligence wanted to develop a new verbal test of intelligence. For this purpose, he wrote 200 objective multiple-choice items. Each item had four alternatives, one of which was right and the three remaining ones were wrong. He administered this initial version to a sample of 400 subjects. Using P27 and P73 as the cut-off points, he obtained two groups – Low Scoring and high scoring respectively. The item difficulty index and the item discrimination index were computed for 200 items. To assess whether each item significantly discriminates between Low scoring and High scoring groups, appropriate statistical significance tests were also employed. This item analysis process retained 150 items. The final version of 150 items was administered to a fresh sample of 750 subjects. The appropriate measures of internal consistency reliability were obtained. The test norms were developed using normalized T scores (mean = 100, SD = 20) and the Wechsler type deviation IQ scores. To assess the dimensionality of verbal intelligence, the researcher also carried out the factor analysis of item scores.

Q. 46 Which one of the following test of statistical significance can be employed in the above study to evaluate whether item significantly discriminates between the Low scoring and High scoring groups?

(1) Chi-square

(2) Point-biserial correlation

(3) t test

(4) Biserial correlation

Answer: 2

Q. 47 Which of the following reliability coefficients can be computed in the above study to assess the internal consistency?

(a) Odd even reliability

(b) Kuder-Richardsen reliability coefficient

(c) Cronbach alpha coefficient

(d) Interscorer reliability coefficient

Codes:

(1) (a) only

(2) (a) and (c) only

(3) (a), (b) and (c) only

(4) (b), (c) and (d) only

Answer: 3

(3) 85

(4) 115

Answer: 2

Q. 50 In the above study, which type of correlations can be employed to carry out the factor analysis of the test items?
