Types of Test
Objective: Has one correct answer

Performance: Has multiple correct answers
example: essay, oral presentations, experiments, construction of graphs or charts
Best to use both types of test in the classroom because they both have advantages and disadvantages.
Structured tasks with limited responses
Scoring and creation is easy and quick.
Simple learning outcomes, does not allow for higher learning outcomes. Mostly knowledge level and use of student memory.
Students can often guess the answer.
The main goal of classroom testing is to obtain valid reliable and useful information about students achievement.
Times for Testing
Before Instruction: Pretesting, this is used to determine student readiness and to be able to make modifications to the instruction.
During Instruction: this is used to monitor progress, provide feedback to students and teachers, usually formative assessment (test, quiz).
After Instruction: this is used to see if students have achieved learning outcomes. Can be a possible pretest for the next unit. Usually summative assessment (end of the chapter test.)
Table of Specifications

Third create a list of content being taught.
Then use the objective and content to create a chart that relates the two things.

Allows for testing of higher learning outcomes.
Time consuming to create, and complete.
Time consuming and difficult to score.
Creation of Test
The test should be long enough to provide adequate sampling of objectives.
Should have a few questions for every objective wanted to be measure. This will show a sample of if the students achieved that objective
Eliminate irrelevant barriers or things that may prevent students from doing their best.
avoid unintended clues
these provide invalid evidence of achievement
