Basal & Ceiling
When administering a test can you reach a ceiling before a basal? For example, if the ceiling if 4 and the basal is 7 and I started at question 65:
Would 62-65 be the ceiling or would I have to establish a ceiling after getting the basal (meaning I would have to continue testing forward).
Thanks for your help!!
As a follow up to this question, what if the results were like this:
(Then keep testing backwards to achieve a basal)
Would you count questions 60 & 63 in your raw score or not since they were after the ceiling?
Thanks for your response!
Thank you, Bridget! You have been so helpful in answering all of my questions.
That actually made me stop and think! I think you stop testing after getting the basal. You did it right
