Testing Basics

Jan 18, 1:00 PM Central Time, 75 Minutes

This is the first in the mini series on how to develop valid assessments.  This session defines what constitutes a test, and what makes a test valid and reliable.  It describes the different types of tests comparing them in terms of their fidelity and what knowledge, skill, and ability each is designed to assess.  It compares the types of tests based on their fidelity (how life or work like they are).  This is first topic in the mini series on testing.  The other topics are deciding what and how to test, multiple-choice questions, performance items, checklists, and rubrics. 

Objectives:  You will be able to: 

  • Explain what is a test according to the American Psychological Society.
  • What is required for a test to be valid and reliable.
  • Explain how the different types of test compare in terms of their fidelity.
