Automatic scoring for online STAT Written English Test:
To enable automatic scoring, several hundred responses to the prompts were marked using a criterion-referenced analytical marking guide. Responses were hand marked (double marked and adjudicated where necessary) using the STAT marking guide. The scores were Rasch analysed and a measurement scale was calibrated. Finally, the scores were loaded to the automatic marking system to create a computer model that replicates manual scoring and can ‘mimic’ the way markers assign scores.

Please note: except as otherwise required by law, no refunds will be given for the purchase of any STAT preparation materials.
