Teacher Made Tests
Constantly I am amazed at how much there is to teaching. Developing tests as I have learned from NTI takes thought and time. The structure of the test is just as important as content. Using capital letters in order to help students choose a clear response was a light bulb moment for me. Something so simple can make a huge difference for some students. My understanding of how to write test items is much clearer after this section. As I look back on previous tests, many mistakes were made, especially using mostly tests from the state disk. My plan is to use a variety of test items on future tests. I found the modified true/false and the free response (without a word bank) test items interesting and I am looking forward to using them to prepare tests.
