Question description


Based on your readings from Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, & 10, answer the following questions. Each response should be in your own words and should be 75-100 words minimum.

Each question should show an understanding from the textbook and what you learned during the readings. Each question is worth 25 points.

  1. What are the three more recent reasons (as opposed to the traditional reasons) given as to why teachers should know about educational assessment? Of those three reasons, choose the one that you feel is the most important one and then explain why you feel this way.
  2. There are three types of reliability evidence and three types of validity evidence. In your own words, provide a brief description of each of these six types of evidence. Then, choose one of the six types of evidence and give a specific example of a way that you could gather this type of evidence.
  3. What is meant by the term “disparate impact”? How does disparate impact relate to the possibility of bias in educational assessment? What is the most likely explanation for disparate impact if bias has not occurred? What are two ways that you can think of that might help to alleviate disparate impact in general in assessment?
  4. If you as a teacher had to decide between using selected-response tests or constructed-response tests in your classroom, how would you figure out which one to choose (if you could only use one or the other)? Share at least five variables that you would consider as you pondered your decision.
