College professors, instructors, and teaching assistants are hired or admitted into their departments because of their expertise in their fields, and most are simply never exposed to testing theory and its applications. The goal of this book is to enable anyone in an academic environment who is responsible for assessing students to create the best exams possible.
This step-by-step guide starts from basic concepts of what defines a high-quality test and leads the reader through the process of planning, writing, reviewing, administering, scoring, and returning the test. The suggestions and guidelines provided are based on empirical research and established professional standards.
