Student Generated Items as an Instructional Tool.
Crehan, Kevin
Undergraduate students in a large tests and measurements class were assigned a series of projects directly related to course content: (1) divide the textbook and instructional content into topical sub-sections; (2) identify learning outcomes for each sub-section; (3) list course objectives--working in groups of 3-6 students; (4) revise objectives--among entire class; (5) divide the task of item writing for the final list of objectives; (6) critique items and construct a quiz; (7) administer quiz and conduct item analyses; and (8) conduct an item-by-item critique--among the entire class--to determine which items need revision or deletion. This instructional strategy increased the students' involvement and cooperation, but required a considerable amount of class time. (Four behavioral objectives constructed by the students are presented, as well as a sample item card, the 27-item test, and a computer printout of quiz results.) (GDC)
