About this learning opportunity

Offered by the Provincial Assessment Sector.

This workshop focuses on showing teachers how to construct effective multiple-choice and numerical-response questions for high school math and science. Common issues, errors and misconceptions in item development will be shown, as well as ways to improve the quality of machine-scored items. Hands-on materials will be provided. Participants should bring a copy of a current test that they wish to review and revise, as well as resources to write new machine-scored questions at this workshop. The full-day session will allow participants time to practice the skills described in the session and will explore the concept of blueprinting assessments based on provincial standards established by Alberta Education and teachers from across Alberta.
