Frequently Asked Questions




What is classical test theory?




Classical test theory is a set of assumptions and methods for measuring the reliability and validity of test scores. Classical test theory assumes that each test score consists of a true score and an error score. The true score reflects the examinee's ability or knowledge on the test domain, while the error score reflects the random factors that affect the test score, such as guessing, mood, fatigue, etc. Classical test theory aims to estimate the true score and reduce the error score by using various statistics, such as difficulty level, discrimination index, point-biserial correlation, etc.
