Part 3: Develop Test Administration and Grading Strategies

As part three of the evaluation project you began in Week 3, this week you will create a paper designing test administration and test grading strategies from the test blueprint that you developed in Week 1.

You need to:

• Describe exam security prior to the test

• Develop a cover sheet with overall exam instructions and an academic integrity clause for the students to sign in regard to academic dishonesty (place in Appendix)

• State how items will be arranged and formatted on the test with your rationale

• Provide sample directions to the learner for each set of test items

• Identify strategies to prevent any form of academic dishonesty

• Explain three elements essential to test administration

• Describe the procedure on how you will score the exam

• Verify the appropriate time allotted to the learners for completing the test.

• Identify the statistical analyses you will utilize for your exam and provide your rationale for your choice.

As you create your paper, be sure that you follow APA guidelines for writing style, spelling and grammar, and citation of sources.

Name your document NSG6102_W5_A2_LastName_FirstInitial.doc. Submit this assignment to the W5: Assignment 2 Dropbox by Tuesday, September 8, 2015.
