Applying the Peer Review Process to the Development of Learning Assessments

August 13, 2015
Presented by: Dr. Jennifer Mathews, Associate Professor of Pharmaceutical Science, St. John Fisher College Wegmans School of Pharmacy Faculty-generated exams have high-stakes implications for measuring student learning outcomes. However, these internal high-stakes assessments are often only seen by the faculty author and the students. Moreover, the test item writers may have had very little training in drafting test items. Since only the faculty author sees these items, they may never be reviewed for content, validity, reliability, readability, or even quality of writing. This session will explore what can happen when we apply the value of the scholarly peer review process to test item development. Included will be suggestions for faculty development sessions, sample exam blueprints for ensuring appropriate distribution of exam content, as well as specific examples of peer-reviewed questions. (Recorded on Wednesday, January 21, at 3pm ET)
