Abstract

Assessment and measurement in teaching and learning process is one of the most vital processes in order to enable the continuous quality improvement. However, the over use of Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) which is a computation process is purely the mean of raw scores, lacks precision and linearity hence validity required to meet the fundamental criteria of measurement warrants a review. Rasch modeling was used to assess students' ability and the quality of questions in the Environmental Science examination at an architectural school. The modeling demonstrates that the questions are reliable tool for assessing the students. However, more than half of the questions are beyond the average capability of the students.
