I have just noticed an odd thing. I just finished grading a set of EOC Reading practice tests. With the paper/pencil tests, I have a 95% pass rate (cut score is 56%). The same test, taken online, was only a 50% pass rate. The paper/pencil test was done earlier than the online test. Why do students do worse on the online version of a test? Plus, they had seen the test before, so it should have been a no brainer? This was actually totally done on accident--but it seems so odd to me. If my students were to take a paper/pencil test--our pass rates would be so much better. Why must all our tests be online? Is there anyway to change this? I'm sure I'm not the first to realize this.
