End of Semester--Assessing your assessments
Here are a few tips to get you started:
- Review how students did on each test question so you can gauge whether the question accomplished the goal you had in mind when you wrote it.
- Use test questions to analyze which learning outcomes students didn’t perform well on and consider how to address those outcomes better with class activities and additional practice time.
- Take note of any questions that were either frequently missed or answered incorrectly so you can revise them or eliminate them.
- Finally, based on your analysis of your end of the semester test, come up with which lessons and assignments helped your students most and use that information to focus your instruction.
