Now that your spring semester has started, now is the time to act on your new year’s resolution to improve your item writing skills and build sound assessments. This webinar will help your create critically-thinking test items for this semester’s exams. You’ll obtain valuable student response data from these new questions that can guide future editing, and help you obtain the greatest benefit from your authoring efforts. By performing a systematic item analysis after each exam, you can pinpoint students’ knowledge gaps, which will help you focus your item writing on those course objectives that are globally misunderstood or ignored. In addition to reviewing item writing techniques, we’ll also cover the advantages of using electronic test blueprints to establish test validity and tie your assessments to your overall program objectives. You may not lose 10 pounds by February 14th, but you can develop 10 new (or newly-edited) test items instead of polishing off that box of Valentine’s chocolates – what a great way to make a productive start to 2017, and to your new semester!
