The study of the theory and methodology of educational and psychological measurement.
At DRC|CTB, our primary focus is on measuring the knowledge, skills, and abilities that comprise educational curricula. Our Research Department conducts psychometric research to support and further improve measurement. Our work addresses a wide range of topics, including detection of cheating, scaling and equating, validity studies, and other relevant issues.
The goal of this research is to develop a procedure to autonomously determine if cheating has occurred during testing by detecting the presence of aberrant responses in scanned Optical Mark Recognition (OMR) test books.
