Guessing Correction

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

For Reading and Maths, an extra feature of e-asTTle scoring is a ‘guessing correction’ that excludes unlikely responses from the scoring calculation.

When students correctly answer questions at a considerably higher curriculum level than expected given their overall response pattern, these responses are removed from the score calculation process.

For example, a student with an overall 2B score who answers two 4A questions correctly will have the two 4A questions removed from scoring, and their score re-calculated.

Another example is that a student who answers an entire test ‘a’,’a’,’a’ will either receive a dash or a very low e-asTTle score.
