It can be seen from Table 4 that the Questions Quality (QQ), Overall Quality of the Exam (OQE), the Answer Key Quality (AKQ
) and the Commonality (Co) do not have a significant correlation with the Final Exam Grade for a one tailed test at the 0.05 level.
Although the majority of the items from the AKQ assess knowledge relating to the transmission of the AIDS virus, 13 relate to the subject's sexual activity.
Of the remaining 10 sexual activity items on the AKQ, 7 were target items and 3 were filler items.
AIDS knowledge scores on the 32-item scale from the AKQ ranged from 27 to 59 with a median of 46 and a mean of 46.17.
The 17 target questions about risky sexual behavior from both the SBQ and AKQ (see Table 1) were subjected to principal components analysis.
