  • Types of Test
  • • Numerous types of test are used in school. • There are different ways of categorizing test namely: ease of quantification in response, mode of preparation, mode of administration, test constructor, mode of interpreting results and nature of response.
  • As to mode of response, test can either be oral, written or performance. • Oral test- It is a test wherein the test taker gives his answer orally. • Written test- it is a test where answers to questions are written by the test taker. • Performance test- it is one which the test taker creates an answer or a product that demonstrates his knowledge or skill, as in cooking and baking.
  • Cooking( performance test)
  • As to ease of quantification of response, test can either be objective or subjective. • Objective test- it is a test paper and pencil test wherein students’ answers can be compared and quantified to yield a numerical score. This is because it requires convergent and specific response.
  • • Subjective test- It is a paper-and- pencil test which is not easily quantified as students are given the freedom to write their answer to a question, such as an essay test. Thus, the answer to this type of test is divergent.
  • As to mode of administration, tests can either be individual or group • Individual test- It is a test administered to one student at a time. • Group test- It is one administered to a group of students.
  • As to test constructor, tests ca be classified into standardized and unstandardized • Standardized Test- It is a test prepared by an expert or specialist. This type of test samples behavior under uniform procedures.
  • • Questions are administered to students with the same directions and time limits. Results in this kind of test are scored following a detailed procedure based on its manual and interpreted specified norms and standards.
  • •Unstandardized test- it is one prepared by teachers for use in the classroom, with no established norms for scoring and interpretation of results. It is constructed by a classroom teacher to meet a particular need.
  • As to mode of interpreting results, tests can either be norm-referenced or criterion-referenced. • Norm-referenced test- it is a test that evaluates a student’s performance by comparing it to performance of a group of students on tha same test.
  • • Criterion-referenced test- it is test that measures a student’s performance against an agreed upon or pre-established level of performance.
