Construction, Administration and Analysis of a Classroom Test.
Taylor, Hugh
The Evaluation of Student Achievement is a course required of all education majors at the University of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. It covers construction of classroom objectives and related test items, test administration, item analysis, statistical analysis, and assignment of grades. Among other assignments, students were required to: (1) define 3-5 cognitive objectives and learning outcomes; (2) develop a related test, with at least 30 multiple-choice items; (3) administer the test to their student-teaching classes; and (4) revise at least five items after computing item difficulty, item discrimination, and frequency of distractor choices. (A sample student project, related to teaching the novel and short story in grade 10; a project rating sheet; and the course outline are included.) (CP)
