The OnTarget item analysis report is considerably different than what is being offered by most other software systems. An item analysis is a method of statistically reviewing items on a test, to ensure that every question meets minimum quality control criteria. This statistical analysis is conducted after the test has been administered. Item analyses are conducted for the purpose of reviewing the quality and difficulty of the items.
This report provides a structure for districts, campus, teacher leaders, subject chairs, or curriculum teams, to review each question on the Locally developed assessment (LDA) for validity evidence as outlined by the Texas Formative Assessment Resource Guidelines, as well as the Guidelines for Writing Effective Assessments provided by the TEA.
