How is the cut-off recommended for a test?

There are industry standard methods to decide cut-offs. One of the most commonly used is Angoff method. In this method, following steps are taken: www.apuzz.com

  1. For each question, approximate accuracy rate is determined (based on level of difficulty/past data for that question).
  2. An average is taken across questions to compute the overall accuracy rate.
  3. This % is the suggested cutoff. Of-course, the client can increase or reduce the cutoff
  4. g. if 5 questions have an expected accuracy of 30%, 10 questions have an expected accuracy of 50% and 5 questions have an expected accuracy of 75%, then the overall cutoff will be (5*30% + 10*50% + 5*75%)/20 = 51.25%
