An Introduction to Test Item Analysis Using jMetrik (online event)

TEVAL is pleased to announce an online presentation to be held on Saturday, February 11 at 6pm in which Trevor Holster of Fukuoka University will repeat the workshop he gave at JALT National on “An Introduction to Test Item Analysis Using jMetrik”. jMetrick is a free, open-source computer program for psychometric analysis. The meeting will open from 5:30pm so that attendees can download and install the software prior to the start of the event and be able to ask questions if any installation issues arise.

Test item analysis can provide valuable information about classroom tests, as well as for researchers and standardized test developers. This workshop is intended to introduce the basic principles of item analysis to novices with no previous experience of test analysis. It will provide hands-on experience using the free jMetrik software package.

Although basic analysis can be conducted in spreadsheet software such as Microsoft Excel, dedicated software such as jMetrik is faster and provides a much deeper range of analysis. However, learning how to import data and conduct the analysis can be difficult for novices. This workshop will provide a walk-through demonstration of data formatting and importation, and then demonstrations of classical and Rasch item analysis. A sample dataset will be provided and participants are encouraged to bring a Windows, Mac, or Linux laptop to practice conducting the analysis. The software can be downloaded free by clicking on the following link jMetrik download

This presentation is co-sponsored by the JALT CALL SIG and the JALT TEVAL SIG.
