Description

Writing test items based on the number of hours of lectures is not the logical approach to developing a test. Using a test blueprint, based on concepts taught, will enable you to create a balanced test which is fair to learners. By identifying key concepts to test, it is easy to develop multiple forms of the same item for subsequent tests. Objectives Discuss the principles of test item development as they relate to key concepts. Develop a plan to distribute test items appropriately.
