Webinar: How to write high quality test items

We have all been exposed to some sort of assessment in our lives.  Think back to your school days – you would often be tested on what you were supposed to know. Most times the test was just a regurgitation of what you’d been told. If you paid attention in class, revised and had a good memory you probably would pass. But how long did you remember the material after the assessment?

Well-written items promote learning and memory recall, and help retain knowledge, skills and/or abilities over time. But writing good items isn’t as easy as it looks.

There’s still time to register for the webinar How to write high quality test items, presented by Questionmark.

This webinar will cover:

  • The basic requirements for writing a good stimulus
  • How to create fair, reasonable distractors
  • Ways to identify and improve poorly written items


  • Thursday 22nd September, 2016 15:30 (Australian Eastern Standard Time – AEST)

      In Montana's writing class, we wrote a lot of essays and summaries of texts, small essays on a topic or on questions; in listening, we wrote the same texts on video or audio podcasts. On speaking we also wrote down notes by ourselves, then we checked our own mistakes and graded them. It is a very effective exercise, as you can immediately see your typical mistakes. But that was really hard for me that I was even looking for a service where I canĀ buy cheap essay. There weren't many at the time and it was really hard to find a decent one.
