Item Review 101: Where We've Been, Where We're Going, How We'll Get There.
Bunch, Michael B.
This module explains test review as it is now performed in most large-scale testing programs. It addresses the fundamental aspects of item review principally for fairness, sensitivity, and bias, and to a lesser degree for content and construct validity. The module is designed for a survey course and thus has a broad, rather than deep, focus. The module is designed to majors and nonmajors alike and is designed to be useful for state and local department of education staff as well as officers and employees of testing organizations. The module contains these sections: (1) definition and purpose; (2) basic issues; (3) historical overview; (4) current practices; (5) case study; and (6) recommendations. A self-assessment for the user is included. Appendixes contain a code of fair testing practices and a discussion of fairness and sensitivity training. (SLD)
