Statistical methods are employed in educational assessment to ensure the reliability and validity of assessments, establish grading scales and analyze test results. Item Response Theory (IRT) and Classical Test Theory (CTT) are used to develop and evaluate standardized tests, measure student proficiency and assess the quality of assessment instruments. Statistics plays a crucial role in educational policy-making and planning. By leveraging statistical methods, educators, researchers, policymakers and administrators can gain insights from educational data, make evidence-based decisions and drive improvements in educational practices and outcomes. Statistics in education also provides a foundation for assessing educational quality, understanding student performance, experience and promoting effective teaching and learning strategies.
