Assessment 1: Designing Assessment Tasks
o You will design an extended assessment booklet comprising eight item sets.
o Think about what types of learning objectives each assessment set will measure (e.g. knowledge, understanding, skills and critical thinking).
o Develop eight different item sets to measure the learning objectives in a single subject area of your choice (e.g. mathematics, English, science, history). Viewed together, the eight sets form a cohesive assessment booklet demonstrating your ability to design different item types.
Create eight item sets using each of the following item types:
1. extended essay
2. restricted essay
3. completion type
7. multiple-choice items
You can sequence the item types in any order; however, do not mix different item types within the eight sets. Together, they need to form a cohesive assessment for the one group of students who are studying the topic you have chosen.
