Creating strong, defensible assessments is a frequent theme in this blog.
Most recently, Doug Peterson took readers step by step through a ten-part series of posts on Test Design and Delivery. Based on this series, he put together a presentation (now available on SlideShare) called Five Steps to Better Tests: Best Practices for Design and Delivery for the Questionmark Users Conference in March.
The presentation goes through each key step test creation process from planning the test, with tips like avoiding bias and stereotyping, to creating it and setting passing standards, delivering it while ensuring test security and finally, evaluating it using item-level data to improve item quality.
Enjoy the presentation below, and mark your calendar for the 2014 Questionmark Users Conference, March 4-7 in in San Antonio, Texas.
