Abstract: There are two types of the items on examination. One test consists of the items with the same points and another test consists of the items with the different points. It is important to assign the points for the items based on a good standard when an examiner chooses an examination with the different points. The paper proposes the method which applies WAVE algorithm [1] in classification to point allocation on examination. WAVE algorithm is developed in combining the outputs of classifiers in ensemble. We apply it to the point allocation on examination since the concept of WAVE is similar with the concept of a tester’s evaluation. It assigns high points on hard-to-solve items and low points on easy-to-solve items and considers an examinee’s ability simultaneously.
