Test Development Workshops

In academia, examinations are game-changing. They determine who is accepted to courses, who receives a scholarship, who doesn’t take second year Economics, and who qualifies as a lawyer or a doctor. In our culture examinations are the bottom line of the educational system, and unfortunately they are often the focus of study.

“I never give 100”, “You should take the second sitting, it’s always easier”, “I wrote a three-page essay and he just marked a tick - he can’t have spent more than five minutes on it”. We often hear statements like these, reflecting only some of the problems with examinations in academia. For more than 25 years the National Institute for Testing and Evaluation has specialized in the development of examinations and scientific research into testing theory. It is the foremost body in the field in Israel and a world leader. One of the founding principles of the National Institute for Testing and Evaluation, a non-profit organization, is the improvement of the quality of examinations in schools and institutions of higher educations.

NITE offers a range of workshops on different aspects of developing, composing and scoring tests. The workshops are available to individuals and institutions interested in developing professional standards in the field and creating a fairer test culture. The workshops are given by lecturers experienced in developing and writing tests.
