Testing Times

Emma Cresswell

As the exam period approaches we turn our attention the tests that our students will soon be sitting.

The debate surrounding whether or not we should indeed test our students is not addressed here.  Instead we are looking at how to ensure that the assessments we submit our students to are the best they could be.

What should we assess our students on? What make a good test?  These questions, and more are answered in this session.
