Developing a high-quality item bank is an extremely involved process, and authoring of the items is just the first step. Items need to go through a defined workflow, with multiple people providing item review. For example, you might require all items to be reviewed by another content expert, a psychometrician, an editor, and a bias reviewer. Each needs to give their input and pass the item along to the next in line.
Both of our platforms, FastTest and Assess.ai, have powerful functionality to manage this process. Admin users can define the stages and the required input, then manage the team members and flow of items. Assess.ai is unique in the industry with its use of Kanban boards – recognized as the best UI for workflow management – for item review.
An additional step, often at the same time, is standard setting. One of the most common approaches is called the modified-Angoff method, which requires you to obtain a difficulty rating from a team of experts for each item. The Item Review interfaces excel in managing this process as well, saving you all the effort of manually managing that process!
