    Planning and Reviewing Test Items: How to Use Test Blueprints and Item Analysis to Create Better Exams Workshop with Dr. Carrie Chen

    CENTILE Workshop
    Successful development of exams depend both on effective planning before and careful review after the exam. The use of blueprints in planning, to design an exam and develop test items, helps ensure exam content is representative of course content and expectations. Post hoc analysis of the exam and test items allow evaluation of the exam’s performance and identification of problematic items. This workshop will introduce the concept of test blueprinting and item analysis in the development of multiple choice exams. Participants will be able to practice creating and using a test blueprint and interpreting item statistics for questions on a multiple choice exam.

Please note that, while Apprenticeship in Teaching (AT) workshops are open to faculty, they are designed for graduate students. Presentations and many of the exercises are designed for instructors with relatively little teaching experience. Some workshops are more appropriate than others for those with more teaching experience. Faculty with a particular interest in one of the AT workshops should contact James Olsen before registering.
