Item Review Workflow

Reduce test development timelines and increase item quality with a dedicated Item Review module.  Create your review fields, give assignments with deadlines to users, and analyze the results.

Item banking

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.

Workflow management is well-recognized as an essential step in project management.  Just like no software development project would be done without a system to assign tickets to developers, no high-quality exam should be built without 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!
