A Sample Assessment Using the Four Process Framework. CSE Technical Report 543.
Almond, Russell; Steinberg, Linda; Mislevy, Robert
This paper describes a four-process model for the operation of a generic assessment: Activity Selection, Presentation, Response Processing (Evidence Identification), and Summary Scoring (Evidence Accumulation). It discusses the relationships between the functions and responsibilities of these processes and the objects in the Instructional Management Systems (IMS) Question and Test Interoperability (QTI) information model. The ideas are illustrated with hypothetical examples that concern elementary Chinese language proficiency. The complementary modular structures of the design framework and the operational processes encourage efficiency in design and the reuse of objects and processes. (Contains 5 figures, 2 tables, and 14 references.) (Author/SLD)
