The analysis of response patterns is motivated by the belief that additional instructional information is contained in the analysis of the errors student make in responding to test items. In this paper we will present a method of organizing, analyzing, and reporting test results that is useful to the mathematics classroom teacher. Most of the time the only information that a student sees is his final score. Even on teacher-made tests the students often only see a total score because of the time and effort necessary to get diagnostic material from the test. Test data can be analyzed very efficiently with the use of microcomputer test analysis software. The Student-Problem Package provides an informative report of diagnostic value to the student and teacher.
