Bad Test...Good Test: Designing Classroom Tests To Accommodate Disabled Learners.
Graham, Marilyn T.; Isom, Rebecca M.
This paper, presented in an outline format, provides general suggestions for the format of classroom tests and offers guidelines for adapting commercial tests that accompany textbooks for students with disabilities. Suggestions include, for example, using visual prompts to focus attention on important words, symbols, or procedures; and not requiring use of a separate answer sheet. The paper then presents tips for constructing specific types of tests, such as fill in the blank, multiple choice, matching, true-false, math computations, and structured essay. Eighteen short tests are appended as examples of test construction strategies. (JDD)
