Abstract

       The objectives of this research are (1) to develop an item bank for an applied computer program usage skill test; and (2) to verify quality of the developed item bank. The research population comprised 200 students. The employed research instruments comprised (1) an applied computer program usage skill test containing 90 test items covering the contents of three computer programs: Microsoft Words, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Power Point (Version 2013); and (2) a test quality evaluation form. Content validity of the test had been verified by five experts. After that, the test was tried out for selection and improvement of the test items by finding out their difficulty indices and discrimination indices based on the Brennan Method, and their reliability coefficients based on the Lovett Method.
       This research has developed and evaluated test items covering the contents of three computer programs: Microsoft Words, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Power Point (Version 2013). The indices of item-objective congruence (IOC) of test items in the three computer programs, based on opinions of the five experts, ranged from 0.40-1.00. The difficulty indices and discriminating indices of test items in the three computer programs were appropriate. For test items in the Microsoft Words Program, their difficulty indices ranged from 0.505-0.885, and their discriminating indices ranged from 0.240-0.681. For test items in the Microsoft Excel Program, their difficulty indices ranged from 0.265-0.825, and their discriminating indices ranged from 0.267-0.617. For test items in the Microsoft Power Point Program, their difficulty indices ranged from 0.575-0.82, and their discriminating indices ranged from 0.319-0.685. As for the cut-off scores based on the Angoff Method, the cut-off score for test items of the Microsoft Words Program was 14, that for test items of the Microsoft Excel Program was 12, and that for test items of the Microsoft Power Point Program was 12. Regarding the mean and standard deviation of test item scores, test items for the Microsoft Words Program had the mean score of 21.98 and standard deviation of 0.446; test items for the Microsoft Excel Program had the mean score of 15.02 and standard deviation of 0.500; and test items for the Microsoft Power Point Program had the mean score of 25.465 and standard deviation of 0.449. As for reliability coefficients based on the Lovett Method, test  items for the Microsoft Words Program had reliability coefficient of 0.83; test items for the Microsoft Excel Program had reliability coefficient of 0.91; and test items for the Microsoft Power Point Program had reliability coefficient of 0.87. Thus, it can be concluded that the developed test items are of good quality and can be used for the applied computer program usage skill test. The test scores can be indicators to determine guidelines for instructional development of the three computer programs.
