Need Improvement of Teacher-Made Tests By DAVID NYDICK UPI Education Specialist Criticism has been directed at intelligence tests, achievement tests and college board examinations during .the past few years. The most serious problem is not with these tests but rather -with teacher-made tests which are used in most classrooms. Test making involves many techniques in which the test maker requires training. The development of a test is a complicated procedure. There are many types of exam questions such as essay, multiple choice, true - false, matching and fill-in. The test maker must know which of these are best suited for testing a particular skill. It is necessary to state each question in such a way that it is clearly understood. There should be little opportunity to debate which is the correct answer. Skilled Experts The experts who devise examinations such as intelligence tests and college boards are skilled in test making. They follow an extensive procedure in preparing questions, trying them out, revising them and continuously checking them while in actual use. There is a complex statistical analysis of these exams. If these tests are criticized, what should be said about teacher-made tests. Many teachers have had no training in test making. College courses in testing are not ordinarily required for graduation or teacher certification. Too many schools and school systems do not provide in- service programs on test preparation. What does the teacher do? She makes up tests in spelling, arithmetic, geography, grammar, history and any other subject area for which she is responsible. She thinks she is testing the student's knowledge but really can't be sure. The questions are often misleading. The sampling of material may be improper. The actual skill being taught may not even be involved in answering the questions. Untrained Methods The test is given to the students and a score is determined. In some cases this score is a major factor in deciding the student's grade for the course or subject. There is often an unrealistic weight given to particular tests in relation to other tests and methods of evaluation. Should short quiz on additional facts be given the same weight as an extensive exam involving prob- lem solving or a student's classroom participation? The area of teacher-made tests has received too little attention by educators. It has become an important part of the educational program and yet teachers are left to their own untrained methods. It is unfair to expect teachers to prepare quality tests simply because they are teachers. In many cases the extent of their training is the fact that they themselves have attended school and have taken tests. This is surely a limited background upon which to prepare exams which involve the evaluation of student progress. There appears to be a serious need for improvement in this area. It is a responsibility of all agencies and people concerned with quality education. There are materials available to help teachers improve the quality of classroom tests. It would seem that an effort in this direction would be most valuable. Brief Respite CLEVELAND (UPI) — Freedom was sweet — and brief — for Curtis Pulley, a 21-year-old bank robbery suspect. The judge cleared Pulley Thursday of charges of robbing the Cleveland Trust Co. of $750, ruling the charges should not have been filed under a city statute. Pulley walked outside the court room and was re-arrested and charged under a state statute. thru the house Mon. Thru Thurs., 9 'til 5 Fri. and Sat. 9 'til 9 Greensburg (Ind.)
