Now that your semester has started, ExamSoft is offering a just-in-time opportunity to expand your item writing skills to include the NCLEX® alternative item formats. This webinar will help your create critically-thinking test items for this semester’s exams. Item types covered will include: Single-answer Multiple Choice; Select-all-that-Apply (Multiple Response); Fill-in-the-Blank; Hot Spot; Chart Type (Exhibit Item); Drag-and-Drop (Prioritized or Ordered Response); and items enhanced with Audio files and/or Graphic images. You’ll also obtain a quick refresher on how to use student response data from these new questions to guide future editing, so that you can receive a bonus benefit from your item writing efforts. By including the alternative item types in your teacher-made exams, you can be assured that your students will gain valuable experience (and less anxiety) with answering these types of items presented in all of the different formats that they will see on their licensure exams.
