Clarity Finally, examine the test items in Table 7.5 for
their general clarity. You may wish to use the rubric (pp. 166 – 167 ) to
assist their evaluation. Note that key terms are highlighted in the items to
direct learners’ attention. The items appear to be clear in that all
information required to answer an item is presented before the learner is
expected to respond. Grammar, punctuation, and spelling are correct, and the
items have a professional appearance.
Once the items and directions are written, evaluated, and
refined, you are ready to create the design evaluation table and review the
materials developed to this point. Your role is to organize the materials,
locate appropriate reviewers, facilitate the review process, explain materials,
answer questions, and take notes. The reviewers’ role is to study the documents
provided and make the requested judgments.
