6 Assessment – Test/Exam Construction Learning Session- February 15, 2013 Purpose: Guide Hatboro-Horsham educators as common assessments are designed. Give consistent structure for test/exam construction. Provide a research-based tool and resources for summative practices. Many types of assessment are utilized foster and monitor student learning. While this resource is focused on effective exam design, the information may be used during the process of revising unit tests, benchmarks, and other content-based assessments. Vital is to change/align instructional practices to reflect higher-order thinking and student ownership of learning!

7 Assessment – Test/Exam Construction Learning Session- February 15, 2013 Test/Exam Construction: Blooms Taxonomy Webbs Depth of Knowledge National and State Standardized Assessments Keystone Exams Higher-Order Thinking Extending the Learning Rigorous Content (CCSS)

8 Assessment – Test/Exam Construction Learning Session- February 15, 2013 Test/Exam Construction – Types of Questions: Multiple Choice Constructed Response/Open-Ended/Essay Questions Multiple Choice : easily scored useful for analyzing general trends in student learning provide insight regarding student understanding of content and skills Constructed Response: use a specifically-designed rubric for scoring provides deep insight into student understanding and thought processes requires students to apply, synthesize, and extend learning

9 Assessment – Test/Exam Construction Learning Session- February 15, 2013 Guidelines for Test/Exam Construction: Multiple-choice questions: core content and skills based on common core standards and course curriculum No more than 60 multiple-choice questions on a test At least 30% of the multiple-choice questions are at the application/analyze/evaluate levels of Bloom's Taxonomy Minimize recall/knowledge level questions Construct questions using the Guidelines for Developing Test Items

10 Assessment – Test/Exam Construction Learning Session- February 15, 2013 Guidelines for Test/Exam Construction: Constructed response/open ended questions/essay questions are at the application/analyze/evaluate levels of Bloom's Taxonomy Constructed response/open ended questions/essay questions are constructed using the Guidelines for Developing Constructed Response Items Weighting: no more than 70% of test grade from multiple choice/short response items; at least 30% of exam grade from constructed response/open-ended questions/essay questions

Does each item present a clear and definite task to be performed (clarity)? Is each item or task presented in simple, readable language and free from excessive verbiage (conciseness)? Does each item provide an appropriate challenge (ideal difficulty)? Does each item have an answer that would be agreed upon by experts (correctness)? Is each item or task free from technical errors and irrelevant clues (technical soundness)? Is each test item free from cultural bias?
