AMEP Assessment Task Bank Professional Development Kit Question ItemsDeveloped by Marian Hargreaves for NEAS 2013 © NEAS Ltd 2014
Relevant issues Provide a variety of questions, but not so many as to be confusing Ensure that the students are familiar with the type of question and understand what they are supposed to do Ensure that students know what is expected of them (eg short answers rather than complete sentences) Start with some easy questions as a lead-in Ensure that questions follow the text ie the answer to Q1 comes before the answer to Q2, and summary questions come at the end © NEAS Ltd 2014

Answer key Limit potential for unforseen/unexpected but equally valid answers Check, and re-check. © NEAS Ltd 2014
General guidelines for item designBe aware of test method effect Use a variety of item types, but not so many as to be confusing Rubrics should be clear, simple and consistent across tasks Questions should be well spaced, especially for listening tasks Questions should follow the text ie the answer to Q1 comes before the answer to Q2 Start with some easy questions as a lead-in Summary questions, eg what is the main topic of this text?, should usually come at the end of the test. © NEAS Ltd 2014
General guidelines, cont.Check for lexical overlap For listening assessment, limit speakers to two, with clearly different voices, eg male/female Avoid responses that are too wordy Avoid ‘What’ and ‘How’ open questions Check against other tasks for the same LO, to ensure consistency Review the answer key. © NEAS Ltd 2014
