What makes a good test question?
General Teaching Topics
Wednesday, January 11th 2012
Ever wonder what is really inside your students' heads? In this interactive session, we will examine what makes a test item good (able to determine student knowledge) and what makes a test item bad (unable to determine student knowledge). Participants will critique multiple items and leave with a checklist of how to determine the quality of an item. Practical tips will be discussed that will be able to be applied immediately to improve multiple choice and short answer assessments.
Goals and Target Audience:
university faculty, graduate teaching assistants
