In other words, explain your findings in sufficient detail so that another person could understand  what  you examined and  why .  Type your responses using MS Word or Google Docs and upload your responses by clicking on the assignment link. 

Difficulty 1.  Estimate i tem difficulty  and report the values .  2.  How would you describe the difficulty of these items?  Are any of them too easy or too difficult? Which ones and why?


Discrimination 3.  Estimate  the item-total correlations and report the values. 4.  How would you describe the discrimination of these items?  Do any items differentiate between test takers particularly poorly? Which items and why?
