Considerations for Creating Paper-Pencil Tests
           Renee Robinson, Saint Xavier University, Chicago, IL
This paper provides information for creating effective teacher-made, paper-pencil 
tests. Consequently, an examination of the importance of careful test preparation 
and the relationship between assessment, instructional improvement, and student 
learning are discussed. The focus of this paper is to assist faculty, who may not 
have been exposed to test writing practices in their graduate studies or 
professional development activities, by presenting specific topics of 
consideration when developing their own paper-pencil tests.
