How to Read Exam Item Data

Exam Item Data Tool

You gave the exam.  

You anxiously await to see how students did.  

Did your students learn what you thought they learned?  

Did your exam really test what they knew?  

Were the questions confusing?  

How about that fifth option on number 30, you knew it was a little weak, did anyone actually guess that?  

Exam item data can help answer these questions. And you don’t have to be a psychometrician (or even know what one is) to get useful information out of exam item statistics. This interactive tool should help.

Note: Sample exam item report is taken from ExamSoft. Other exam software may generate reports that look a little different, but they should have the same exam item statistics available.
