Creating test items that check someone’s ability to apply knowledge — rather just recall what they have learned — presents some special challenges.

James Parry, E-Testing Manager at the U.S. Coast Guard Training Center in Yorktown, Virginia, led a discussion about this at the Questionmark 2013 Users Conference.

I’m pleased to announce that he will be sharing his expertise on this subject during a webinar set for Thursday, June 6 at 1 p.m. Eastern Time.

James will help participants understand the value of high-complexity test items in performance-based tests, explain what makes these questions different from others and offer tips on how to write them well.

Here’s what you can expect to learn about during this free, one-hour webinar:

  • Differences between knowledge testing and performance testing
  • Definitions and comparisons of low-, moderate- and high-complexity test items
  • How performance-based tests relate to Bloom’s Taxonomy and Gagne’s Nine Events of Instruction
  • How to match the complexity of test items to the desired level of cognitive performance
  • Tips for ensuring the quality of high-complexity test items
