Criterion-Referenced Test

A criterion-referenced test is a test that is based on the type of behavior expected of a person with a given score. Each criterion is established prior to the exam. For example, a student may be shown 10 pictures for 2 minutes and then asked to recall as many as she or he can remember. The number of pictures the student remembers will determine the score with, for example, 3 pictures recalled as the average and anything greater than that as above-average.
