Özet

The scope of this study was to evaluate item-objective congruence of second level elementary (7th grade) mathematic sub test of high school entrance exam which was administered in 2009. It is asserted that the items in SBS had been constructed in accordance with the objectives of elementary curriculum. In order to determine whether the questions were constructed in conformity with the objectives, the information about the questions and their respective objectives were obtained from Ministry of Education General Headship of Educational Technology (EGITEK). An Expert Form was prepared by researchers, listing the objectives aimed to be measured by each question and also the objectives considered to be respective in field of learning. The content experts evaluated each item by defining the item "clearly measuring", "partially measuring" and "clearly not measuring". The item-objective congruence indexes and average of expert scores were calculated for each item. The evaluation was carried out on the assumption that the items with a mu(k) value of at least 0,75 measures the valid objectives, and that the items with a I-jk value of at least 0,70 measures the valid objectives but not the other objectives. For valid objectives the mu(k) values vary from -0.45 to 1.00 and the I-jk values vary from -0.26 to 0.66. According to mu(k) values; the content experts agreed that eight items had measured the defined objectives. With regard to I-jk values the content experts agreed that they hadn't measured the defined objectives but they could not agree on whether that they had measured other objectives or not.
