The Nedelsky Method

The Nedelsky method is based on the concept that the borderline candidate responds to multiple-choice items by first eliminating the responses he/she believes are incorrect and then assessing the plausibility of the remaining responses. This particular method is applicable for multiple-choice formatted exams. Using this method:

  • SMEs determine the number of response options that candidates consider implausible.
  • SMEs then assign probabilities to each item based on how many response options remain.
  • The passing score is established by averaging the total probabilities (see table).
