scoring issues
Posted:
May 10, 1998 10:41 AM


Would someone please give me a rough idea of how many multiple choice questions the students need to answer correctly on the exam in order to pass?
Also the number of points needed on the 6 openresponse questions (its my understanding that each O.R. question has 9 graded "points").
I do know about the scoring differences of leaving a M.C. question blank as opposed to answering it incorrectly and that the exam is statistically referenced somehow to get scores of 1,2,3,4,5. But I'd like to give my students some point of reference on how many questions they need to answer and how many points they need to obtain to achieve a passing score. (Obviously, I'd like for them to get everything correct! ;)
Thanks for your help,
