One of the measurement forms applied in
the educational field to know students' ability is a
high-risk tryout test. This research examined the quality of
Mathematics tryout test questions used by Indonesian
teachers to prepare for the national examination as a
high-risk examination. This study used a quantitative
approach and analyzed based on item response theory to
determine the fitness of the model and item eligibility.
The data used were the answers of elementary school
students who took the 2016 national examination tryout of
mathematics subject with the total number of 924 students
from 20 elementary schools in Indonesia. The
mathematics subject consisting of 40 questions, which are
adjusted to the blueprint of elementary school national
examination, was chosen. The results obtained indicate
that the mathematics tryout test items meet the
assumptions of uni-dimension, local independence, and
parameter invariance items. The logistic parameter model
used was the 2-PL model, with 31 out of 40 eligible items
of questions. The novelty of this research is the use of
item response theory to analyze the quality of an
instrument. The aim of the use of item response theory is
to avoid examinee sample dependent and item sample
dependent. The educational stakeholders can use this
research as a reflection in preparing high-risk
