Testing Techniques: How to Design Better Tests

Wednesday, April 3, 2013 at 11:30am to 1:00pm

Registrants Will Be Notified by Email of Location

What makes a "good" test, and how do you know that you have one? Writing a strong test is a balancing act that requires deliberate design and intuitive art. In this workshop, we will discuss how to design tests that accurately assess students' knowledge and how to critically evaluate tests and test questions. We will also look at many different types of test questions and strategies for writing effective questions. Advance registration required.
