Constructing Good Tests: A Summary of Basic Precepts and Principles Presented in Measurement Textbooks.
Altman, Daniel R.
Measurement is a necessary component for research in psychology and education. Researchers use various tests as tools to measure a given construct, making it necessary to have tests that assess a given construct accurately. There are specific principles necessary to follow when constructing a test. This paper discusses the principles for constructing two types of tests: paper and pencil tests and rating scales. The paper contains specific advice for constructing these types of paper and pencil tests: short-answer, true/false or alternative response, multiple-choice, and essay. The paper also contains advice about constructing numerical, graphic, and descriptive rating scales. (SLD)
