The Test Development Process:
Field Testing (con't.)

  • Items developed at the item writing workshop are used to assemble field test forms.

  • Several committees of teachers work with Riverside/SED staff to prepare and review a series of field tests.

  • All possible field test items under go additional content review prior to actual field testing

  • A field test sample is selected for all questions and students take those field tests. These are SECURE test forms and schools must maintain their security. Schools may not make any notes or photocopies of the field tests.
