## What is difficulty index of an item?

## What does an item difficulty index of 1.0 indicate?

Item discrimination is measured in a range between -1.0 and 1.0. Negative discrimination indicates that students who are scoring highly on the rest of the test are answering that question wrong.

Item difficulty is the percentage of learners who answered an item correctly and ranges from 0.0 to 1.0. The closer the difficulty of an item approaches to zero, the more difficult that item is. The discrimination index of an item is the ability to distinguish high and low scoring learners.
