Abstract


Classical test theory assumes that errors are independent. Item response theory has a local independency assumption between the items. If there is Local Item Dependency (LID) these hypotheses cannot be met. Without considering LID, item and test parameters are different from what they are normally. If there are testlets in a test, making practice and when the test is a speed test LID can be occur. Entrance Examination for Academic Personnel and Postgraduate Education (EEAPPE) is this kind of test. So, the views of the students attended to EEAPPE on the factors causing LID were tried to be determined. The questions prepared for this purpose placed in a semi-structured form were answered by the participants. The frequencies and the percentages of the answers were measured. Tiredness, the question format, items with a common root, readiness and duration of the examination are founded to affect the examination performance of the participants.
