The Concept Inventory entry does a poor job of distinguishing a CI from any other large-scale standardized test for which there is a pass-fail threshold. For example, the emphasis on "research" to justify CI distracters is not a distinguishing feature. There is research and systematic development of distractors for all (or nearly all) professionally developed norm referenced tests. Furthermore, a norm-referenced test can have a criterion pass-fail point, using scales that are norm referenced.

It was not my intent to show that the research on distractors distinguishes CIs from other tests. What I tried to do is to show the reader why research on distractors is important. The distractors selected by a student completing a CI ought to shed light on the student's understanding of the concept in question.Iss246 (talk) 21:03, 20 June 2011 (UTC)
