Look forward to the disucssion. Noticed you violated one of the rules of assessments: trick questions. Never use a trick question or one that does not contain the correct response.

Hi Craig,

Thanks for commenting. We didn't intend to create any trick questions; which one do you believe violated the rules?

Best regards,
Wendy Kirkpatrick

I am going to guess Craig means the behaviour question....which I am hoping will be further explored next week! Great blog - thanks.

One of the questions did not contain a "correct" answer (alternative). Both answer alternatives were incorrect. That is not a "good, fair" test item, as there should always be plausible answer choices and one correct answer choice.

If the discussion is about question #2, I can take responsibility for it. I am a product of public schooling, and I took many tests with questions like this. I am not an expert in writing test questions; I didn't think there was actually anything wrong with it. Sorry to have caused anxiety if this is not a fair question.

We will, in future postings, describe the most effective ways to evaluate Level 3 Behavior, so stay tuned!

2. The most effective way to evaluate Level 3: Behavior is by:
a. Distributing a survey to training participants 90 days after training
b. Distributing a survey to the supervisors of the training participants 90 days after training
c. A and B
d. None of the above
