How To Write Tests for Students.
Miller, Patrick W.; Erickson, Harley E.
Guidelines, practical suggestions, and examples are offered to assist teachers in planning and developing tests to accurately measure student achievement. The six chapters cover: (1) planning tests; (2) developing tests; (3) assembling and administering tests; (4) interpreting test results; (5) assessing test items; and (6) improving test validity and reliability. Each chapter concludes with review questions and activities that apply to the information presented. The publication contains four appendices: a description of hierarchical levels for the affective, cognitive, and psychomotor learning domains; sample verbs for writing instructional objectives; a list of selected computer software for text generation and analysis; and sample test items from various curriculum areas. Also included are a glossary of terms and a 60-item bibliography. (SLD)
