Summary

The broad topic of preparing examinations for college-level courses is addressed in this guide. General suggestions include the following: devise a test that reinforces the objectives established for the course; decide upon the primary purpose of the test before constructing it; make the test as valid and reliable as possible; and standardize the test. Construction of the following types of items are discussed: recognition items in general, multiple-choice items, true-false items, matching items, recall items, and subjective items. An examination question should be written to accomplish a specific task; it is necessary to consider the characteristics of the course content as well as the level of thinking being tested. Strengths and limitations for each type of item are covered. Suggestions for scoring and an annotated list of further reading materials are included. (SW)
