Subject: [Rasch] Pass/fail decisions
Is there a term is the testing literature to refer to the stability, accuracy or consistency of pass/fail decisions in high-stakes tests when we compare candidates scores with a cut-score?
I mean questions such "Does Person X, who has scored above the cut-score r, eally deserve the job, academic program etc.?" or " Haven't we unfairly deprived Person Y who has scored below the cut-point?"
I have come up with some terms such as 'false positives', 'false negatives' and 'decision validity'.
Is there a more precise term?
