In higher education, peer review is an established method of ensuring quality of publications. Furthermore, anything that is truly important to us in our professional lives, we tend to peer review. Sadly, however, somethings of utmost important to our students: test/exam items: are often not provided the benefit of peer feedback. Poor quality test items may unfairly impact student grades and have the potential to undermine motivation, engagement and learning. This session addresses this issue by demonstrating how to evaluate test items for content accuracy, applicability to audience, clarity of writing, and alignment to student learning outcomes as well as teaching methods. Using a test item review guide provided, participants will actively engage first in critiquing sample test questions, then in drafting their own questions using the strategies learned. Participants will discuss how the peer review process can be used to improve quality, enhance awareness, and expand capacity for, assessment at their institutions.
