Abstract : A fair method of testing is one which gives credit to students according to the amount of information they demonstrate relative to the topics covered by the test. The logarithmic admissible scoring system used in valid confidence testing is the only testing method which meets this criterion of fairness. Data obtained from the classroom testing of students at the Air University and a public junior high school is used to compare the information score yielded by Valid Confidence testing with the choice score from the traditional method.
