This session will help instructors develop tests that are based on higher order thinking skills and give you guidelines to evaluate your tests prior to launching the tests for students. Guidelines will be given for general test writing, multiple choice, short answer, matching, and true/false questions. Bring an exam or quiz you would like to revise or one you would like to develop (and all of the materials you will need to write the test). This session is typically followed by a session to demonstrate how to build and manage tests in a course management system (Blackboard Learn).
In this session you will learn to:
• Identify general guidelines for writing tests, multiple choice, short answer, matching, true/false
• Revise or write your test, or part of a test, using the guidelines
• Define higher order thinking skills and use them to develop tests
