Workshop: Pragmatic Use of Psychometrics to Enhance Quality of Assessment

Date/Time
18 Jun, Monday, 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Venue
NUS, Tahir Foundation Building (MD1), Level 3, Multi-Purpose Hall 1
Description

Producing an assessment to assess student learning involves a chain of events. Psychometrics can provide us with useful information at some critical junctures in this chain of events, so that we could take corrective measures to ensure a valid and reliable assessment. This workshop will systematically identify the critical junctures, at which we need to seek psychometric support, to inform us on the quality of the events that we have thus far carried out. Then, we will work with some of the psychometric tools and procedures that we could employ to provide us information at these critical junctures. Finally, we will interpret the said information and discuss the corrective measures we could take to enhance the quality of assessment.
