Abstract

This paper describes a Rasch-based measurement model as performance assessment to measure the validity of the ‘Materials Technology’ course final examination questions for a given cohort. An overview of the measurement model, key concepts, and item and person performance are presented and illustrated. The outcome of this investigation shows that some final examination questions for ‘Materials Technology’ course need to be revised. The same assessment was done on the final examination questions for previous cohort and the results are compared with the current assessment. Further improvement in the construction of final examination questions for the course in the future can be done based on assessments of both cohorts.
