Whether you plan on having your students take a multiple-choice exam or show their work in problem-solving, the way you pose your test question can make a difference in their performance. This workshop will provide advice on and practice in writing test questions and compiling them into an effective test. Please submit one test question to by January 18 so that we can practice editing test questions with authentic (and anonymous) material. NOTE: This workshop covers testing issues, not grading issues, although tips for effective grading may come up during discussion.
