Kouimanos, John, Ed.
As one in a series of test item collections developed by the Assessment and Evaluation Unit of the Directorate of Studies, items of value from past tests are made available to teachers for the construction of unit tests, term examinations or as a basis for class discussion. Each collection was reviewed for content validity and reliability. The test items meet syllabus content and aims best suited to multiple choice questions, but teachers are meant to base the use of the test items on student ability and the particular program objectives. A selection of stimulus materials from higher school certificate (HSC) geography examinations are collected with multiple choice or free response test items. Among the materials are maps of natural and cultural features, population density and rainfall; all are subjects studied in grades 7 to 10. Test items concentrate on Australia geography, but Indonesia, New Zealand and other Southeast Asian countries are covered. Answer keys and test construction guidelines are provided. (CM)
