Writing effective questions for tests, certifications, and other types of training is essential to assessing learning outcomes and participant knowledge. However, training around writing quality questions is not provided in many subject areas or graduate programs. This webinar will focus on some of the basics of writing high quality assessment items. To meet this focus, the following outcomes will be addressed where participants will:
• Examine test items to avoid correct answers using common test-taking strategies;
• Discuss specific ways to phrase questions and answer alternatives to ensure the question is measuring the intended knowledge;
• Analyze types of questions and phrases applicable to writing questions in accordance to Bloom’s Taxonomy.
