Improving Proficiency with Item Writing and Exam Creation

1-31-22 - 12:00pm to 1-31-22 - 4:15pm

Join the DUSON Institute for Educational Excellence for a virtual workshop that will connect clinical knowledge and skills with didactic content covered in the classroom for the purpose of creating a reliable and valid test to evaluate student learning. Ainslie Nibert, PhD, RN, FAAN, professor and department chair for graduate programs in nursing at The University of Texas Medical Branch, will discuss useful item analysis data accrued in testing software applications, including the use of a systematic plan for analysis of results from teacher-made testing and standardized exam administrations. Testing strategies practiced will reflect current clinical practice through blueprinting, promoting validity through writing, and editing of test items at the application-and-above level on the cognitive taxonomy.
