ITEM RESPONSE THEORY (IRT) FOR ASSESSING STUDENT PROFICIENCYClassical Test theory provides easy approach for assessing students’ achievement but it takesin to account the overall performance of the student in a given test. It ignores the ability ofstudent to attempt individual test items. We know that all test items are not of the samedifficulty level. Item Response Theory (ITR) helps us to assess students’ performance in moremethodical way. One can analyze an individual students performance using ITR as well asone can compare performances of individual students belonging to a group. Based onparameters ITR models are proposed. The present paper tries to explain some basic conceptsrelated to ITR. Much more explanation and understanding of this concept is needed before itcan be implemented in present education system. ITR may not be the ultimate solution formaking assessment full proof and accurate but it can definitely provide sound basis for morescientific and systematic approach for assessing students’ proficiency.Key terms: Classical Test Theory (CTT), Item response Theory, models of IRT – 1PL, 2Pl, 3PL, Features of ITR
