Do you write learning assessments as an afterthought to the ID process? Do you spend too much time remediating failures? Do you feel stuck using assessments as a way to “check the box” rather than truly test learning? Would you like to explore common pitfalls and learn how to write effective questions?

You are not alone! In this interactive presentation, we will discuss the value of writing effective learning assessments. We will examine actual test questions, identifying the most common issues and best practices that can be used to write more effective quesitons.

By the end of this interactive presentation, you will be able to:

  • Explain the purpose of learning assessments and their role in the learning process
  •  Identify common issues with test questions that use a multiple choice/multiple response format
  • Describe best practices to write “better” test questions
