How Good is Your Multiple-Choice Test? Find Out by Using Item Analysis Workshop

March 1, 1:30pm - 2:45pm
Manoa Campus, KUY 106

Making Program Assessment Happen Workshop Series by the Assessment Office

Many multiple-choice tests can be improved to better measure student learning.

A test question can be referred to as an item. Through item analysis, you can see whether each test question (item) matches the level of learning that you expect of the students. Item analysis helps you examine which learning outcomes are better achieved than others.

It also helps you catch misbehaving questions: those with wrong answer keys, those with more than one answer, those not relevant to your teaching objectives, and those that confuse your students. In this workshop, you will learn

  • the basic concepts: item difficulty, difference index, B-index, distractor analysis;
  • how to conduct item analysis using formulas in Excel;
  • item analysis in pre- and post-test scenarios and achievement test scenarios; and
  • how to interpret item analysis results.

Level: Beginner (basic Excel skills needed for optimal learning)
Format: Demonstration + hands-on practice
Requirement: Please bring a laptop with Microsoft Excel installed (2007 or 2010 preferred)
