This fastback concentrates on writing technically correct test items that are compatible with the teacher's instructional objectives. The introductory chapter touches on some of the problems associated with preparing classroom tests. The second chapter outlines five steps in preparing a test according to the "Plan-Write" System: (1) prepare a content outline; (2) list instructional objectives; (3) appraise student performance levels; (4) note content, objectives, and levels in a test blueprint; and (5) write test items. The third chapter describes the do's and don'ts of writing true-false, multiple choice, matching, and completion test items, and essay questions. The last chapter provides practice in applying these suggestions.
