Assessment Series

Description

The Assessment Series includes two to four workshops a year that address a range of assessment topics, such as:

  • designing effective rubrics
  • writing multiple-choice questions to assess higher order thinking
  • designing effective essay questions
  • item analysis for multiple-choice questions
  • assessing learning online.

2019-20 Series

In this session, we will discuss how to evaluate your multiple-choice items after the test has been written. The focus will be on the discriminator analysis from Scan Exam II. Topics will include an analysis of difficulty levels, point-biserial correlations, distractor analysis, and checking for cheating.
