- identifies the format
- selects the content to be covered
- designs the question
* the select responses is always influences by the student's ability to read and understand the items;
*can utilized computer and optical scanning to save time and effort with item development, item storage and retrieval, test printing and optical scan scoring.
The Performance-based Strategy
- is an assessment which requires students to demonstrate a skill or proficiency by asking them to create.
* can be diagnostic, formative or summative assessment
* uses ongoing feedback
* allows almost learners to participate successfully in varying degrees
