Writing Test Items.
This handbook provides guidelines for instructors to follow in developing test items for occupational task lists. It begins with directions for task analysis: identifying major performance steps of a task, identifying supporting knowledge for each performance step, identifying supporting performance skills for each performance step, identifying safety factors and employability skills, and identifying test item skills. Following the task analysis, directions for constructing cognitive and psychomotor test items are given. They include steps for writing knowledge test items, multiple-choice test items, and performance process test items, and creating a test item checklist for performance evaluation. Numerous examples are given of each type of test item. (KC)
