Avoid Assessment Pitfalls

How do you know if your assessments are effective? Are you testing content knowledge? Or do your assessments measure their deduction skills? In this session, you will explore common test-writing pitfalls and discover how smart test-takers excel without learning the content.

This session will help you recognize high-quality, content-driven assessments and provide an opportunity to experience poorly written test items from the point of view of the test-taker. Learn multiple-choice question-writing "rules," such as including plausible distractors; recognize common test-item pitfalls, like convergence; and understand how smart test-takers use grammatical cues and distractor length to make educated guesses. Combine all of these best practices and you will take your assessments to the next level! Come on down, you're the next contestant on Multiple-Choice Mayhem!

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn Multiple Choice Writing "Rules"
  • Understand grammatical cues and distractor length
  • Recognize common test-item pitfalls
