Abstract

Final exam has been used tremendously as an assessment tool to measure students’ academic performance in most of the higher institutions in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. A good quality of a set of constructed items/questions on final exam would be able to measure both students’ academic performance and their cognitive skills. Rasch Measurement Model has been used to evaluate the reliability and quality of the final exam questions for the Multi-tier Application Development course. The analysis indicated that the reliability and quality of the final exam questions constructed were relatively good and calibrated with students’ learned ability.
