Test quality is based upon the ability to produce a test that accurately measures the areas intended by the test developer. To achieve this, it is essential that each item in the test clearly convey the concept being assessed, be at an appropriate difficulty level for the group being tested, and avoid common item writing errors that give clues to the correct response or detract from the item’s meaning. Attention to such detail will not only improve the overall effectiveness of the test but will also address concerns regarding test wiseness and perceptions of test quality and fairness.
