Application of Logistic Regression Model in Physics Education
Keywords:Logistic regression, Multiple choice test items, Classical test theory, Item response theory, Probability, Evaluation
This paper introduces a logistic regression model used to analyze multiple-choice test data of physics test. It does not involve decision making. It is a predictive model and is more akin to nonlinearity, such as fitting a polynomial to a set of data values. Brief description of the goals and algorithms of such a model is provided, together with examples illustrating their applications in physics. Priority haven been given for data interpretation rather than mathematical complexities.
