Test and Essay Items

Developing the proper test and essay questions are vital to proper assessment and and obtaining measureable learning outcomes.  My thought process behind my test and essay questions is that I prefer performance based assessment because it seems to be a more hands on approach and a more in depth evaluation can be obtained through observing.  I don’t look for a right or wrong answer from the essay questionm but how much information the student knows and whether or not they have an understanding of the information they are writing,  I am able to observe and assess whether or not the student has learned and recognizes all the different facets of information taught concerning clocks and telling time.
