[IPAC-List] Norms

I am currently running off some normative data on a test (means and
frequency distributions) to see how people are doing on it and to see
what proportion pass at various cutoff scores.

My question concerns how to handle the issue of candidates taking the
same test more than once. One option would be to use only the first
test score. Another would be to use all scores. A third option would
be to use only the most recent score.

My tendency would be to use the most recent score or all scores, and I
suspect that the results from these two approaches will be quite similar
in most instances. Does that make sense or am I missing something?

Your thinking on this would be appreciated!
