Brett ClarkeIn this hands-on, workshop you will be challenged to apply the principles of good item design to create your own short and long for exam questions.

You will learn how to self critique your own items as well as critique and therefore improve those items obtained from other sources that you may have considered for inclusion in your next school-based exam.

Feel free to bring along any items/exams you may have developed/used in the past if you would like some feedback.
