We are teachers and we want to do our best for our students. Sometimes we need a chance to see what others are doing to help us “improve our game.”
The goal of this blog is to explore the strategies, philosophies, and various options of test writing. We’ll take a systematic approach, starting with general tips about tests and test construction and then proceeding through different test item types.
We will look at articles and advice on the Internet and discuss how the ideas may or may not apply to our discipline. This is not a “one-size-fits-all” topic! Neither should it be considered a best practices list. We are the topic experts and the best judges for the information we are assessing.
Everyone is invited to read and comment and offer examples of what worked and what didn’t.
I look forward to your responses.
STEM 1 Curriculum and Program Improvement (CPI) Coordinator
