Clay – Is This a Trick Question?

Outcomes/Measurement | Learning ScienceCME ProfessionBehavioral Science | Cognitive Psychology

A notable concern of many teachers is that they frequently have the task of constructing tests but have relatively little training or information to rely on in this task. Is This a Trick Question? is an information sourcebook for writing effective test questions. The central focus of the sourcebook’s content is derived from standards developed by the National Center for Research on Evaluation, Standards, and Student Testing (CRESST). CRESST’s criteria for establishing the technical quality of a test encompasses seven areas: cognitive complexity, content quality, meaningfulness, language appropriateness, transfer and generalizability, fairness, and reliability. Each aspect is discussed in the sourcebook in a straight-forward, jargon-free style.
