A practical guide to constructing effective test questions. It provides teachers with step-by-step instructions they need to go deeper, further and faster toward making a success in preparing effective classroom exams with ease and comfort.
After reading this guide, teachers will be able to:
- Establish technical quality of a test by achieving certain standards.
- Use and develop effective test items following appropriate guidelines.
- Avoid common pitfalls in testing their students.
- Grade essay tests more effectively and fairly.
This guide can be a valuable resource for any teacher who is interested in constructing test items that can capture effectively and fairly what a student knows.
It is the comprehensive guide that I personally wish someone would have shared with me when I first started to make classroom tests for my students.
