Chapter 4 discusses one traditional form of assessment – Paper-and-pencil tests. The chapter first provides an overview of the characteristics and functions of this kind of assessment. Some step-by-step procedures are given for developing a test. Although this form of assessment is restricted to testing students cognitively, tests can be constructed in a way that a broad range of learning outcomes can be assessed. Some examples for constructing test items are given and some construction guidelines are provided to assist teachers in developing test items.
