Digitally Enhanced Teaching: Writing Smarter Test Questions


Writing test questions is a critically important and challenging skill to develop. Few of us, however, have been taught how to write test questions or design the types of assessments that get students to the place of understanding we wish to see. Well written test questions can reinforce learning, assess content mastery, and even positively motivate. Reciprocally, unclear or poorly written questions can not only frustrate students, they can actually deter learning as students may focus on the wrong content or fall back on ineffective study strategies. This session will explore those characteristics that make learning-centered questions and use the affordances of Canvas features that can help further the learning we want to see. In the end, we want to develop test questions that move students toward mastery of content, not how well they can take a test.
