Let’s Talk Teaching: Test what you’re teaching

Ever have your students complain that they were caught off guard by your exam or quiz? They may actually have a point.

In this week’s episode of Let’s Talk Teaching, CTLT’s Julie-Ann McFann explores ways to ensure that your tests actually measure what you are teaching. She takes the fear out of scary concepts like alignment, tables of specification … and unicycles. Plus, learn how to avoid the very real pitfalls inherent in test banks.

Discover more about the concepts discussed in this week’s episode on our show notes page.
