Tools For You.

Sometimes you don’t need a psychometrician to help you with some simple testing issues.  You can approach them yourself – with just a little boost.

Here are three Excel spreadsheets that you can download and use to help you with your testing program.  Each spreadsheet comes with documentation in Word that explains how to use the spreadsheet.

AU Bias Calculator.

The Bias Calculator will help you determine whether your test exhibits bias, as defined by the EEOC guidelines.  The guidelines may have changed since we put this up, so please be sure to check the current guidelines if you use the sheet.

Domain Weighting Tally.

In order to determine how many items are in a domain, and how much scoring weight to give the items in each domain, you will need to have a group of Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) vote on the weights.  This spreadsheet allows you to see what the weight for each domain should be according to the vote of a committee.  It even highlights domains for which there is substantial disagreement, so you can discuss and possibly resolve the weights for these domains.

Scaled Score Converter.

Often you don’t want to report a raw score – you want to report a scaled score.  The college boards, for example, report a scaled score from 200 to 800.  This spreadsheet lets you convert your raw score into a scaled score which you define.
