A quick, easy, and inexpensive way to perform an item analysis on multiple choice exams

If you

  • administer predominantly multiple choice exams
  • want to know if a question is valid and reliable
  • need to determine if questions discriminate positively
  • are interested in identifying distractor effectiveness
  • can't afford a more expensive test scoring scanning machine

then Simple Test Analyzer may be your simple solution.

When the Board asks "How do you retire test questions?", will you have an answer?

Simple Test Analyzer performs the basic calculations of

  • Arithmetic Mean, Median, and Mode
  • KR20 (Kuder-Richardson Formula 20)
  • Item Difficulty
  • Difficulty Index
  • Distractor Analysis

Such analysis demonstrates using "assessment and evaluation data to enhance the teaching-learning process" suggested in the NLN's Core Competencies of Nurse Educators.
