Item Maps with P-Values

Item p-value can help inform instruction by revealing how all students performed on any given item. Likewise, educators can use item p-values as a benchmark to compare how their students performed against students across the state.

More sophisticated models, called Item Response Theory (IRT), are used for form construction, scaling and equating. IRT is used to help develop and maintain NAEP and all other state testing programs, including the upcoming PARCC and SBAC.
