Abstract

The quality of test items is crucial for test validity and for the interpretation of test scores with reference to learners' language ability. Providing item writers with adequate item writing documentation and formal training can substantially improve the quality of the items they produce. This entry provides practical item writing suggestions such as improving teachers' knowledge of language assessment, producing test specifications, writing test items in teams, peer‐reviewing items, and analysing test taker responses.
