Assessing Relevance and Reliability to Improve the Quality of Teacher-Made Tests.
Griswold, Philip A.
NASSP Bulletin, v74 n523 p18-24 Feb 1990
Outlines some practical procedures for assessing test quality. Tests are relevant when learning outcomes have been correctly defined, when test content is aligned with instructional objectives, and when test and instructional formats are similar. Reliable tests follow administration, scoring, and interpretation procedures and consider difficulty level and student characteristics. (MLH)
