Quiz-writing trainees have their mettle tested
The Ajman College of Law and the Human Resource Office created “Writing Test Questions and Measuring the Targeted Learning Outcomes" with the goal of building effective teaching strategies and developing reliable and valid tests.
Randa Soliman, the head of Teaching English as a Foreign Language Department at the College of Education and Basic Sciences, prepared and oversaw the training session.
Trainees participated in debates over viewpoints on assessment and evaluation, and asked questions about teaching, assessment and evaluation. Trainers stressed the need for learners to seek self-development, self-assessment and lifelong learning.
At the end of the session, trainees used technology – an interactive application – to design a test that applied the criteria of learning outcomes and assessments that they had been shown.
