True-false, multiple-choice, and matching are among the most well-known and often-used types of selected-response items in education today. What many teachers may not know, however, is how to create truly top-notch versions of these and other

selected-response items. This booklet, Selected-Response Tests: Building and Bettering, walks you through the good, bad, and ugly of one of assessment’s most useful tools.

 

The MASTERING ASSESSMENT series is a set of fifteen practical, easy-to-use booklets covering a wide range of topics related to educational assessment and accountability. These groundbreaking booklets put the most relevant information on assessment at teachers’ fingertips and provide an important resource for educators looking to learn the ins and outs of becoming “assessment literate.” Paired with the series' F acilitator's Guide (available for download at no additional charge from Pearson's Instructor Resource Center), Mastering Assessment is the perfect tool for building assessment literacy either in self-study or a professional development program.
