Item Analysis Workshop
The purpose of this activity is to enable participants to learn how to use item analysis data to refine the quality of faculty written items for classroom tests. Additionally, participants will learn a method to structure single-response (e.g. multiple-choice, hot spot) and multiple-response (e.g. ordered-response, multiple-select) data for an item analysis process.
Following this session, participants will learn:
- What item and option statistics can be calculated to interpret how items perform and how to interpret the statistics
- How to organize item data for single-select and multiple-select items for an item analysis of all item types
- Participate in presenter-guided item review meetings of their own exam data or example data provided to learn how to update items based upon item and option statistics
- Participate in a group discussion of what each group found easy or difficult about the exercises.
