This workshop focuses on the application of knowledge pertaining to the basics of psychological test development. Specifically, an overview of testing, its ethics, and the five phases of test development will be tackled through interactive lecture and hands-on experience. By the end of this workshop, participants are expected to demonstrate skills in documentary analysis, item construction, item analysis, and item revision.
At the end of the workshop, the participants are expected to:
- develop their synthesizing skills in conceptualizing a psychological construct and its specific facets;
- develop their creativity in constructing sound test items that are representative of the construct, are free from gender and culture bias, and are clear and comprehensible;
- develop their analytical skills in examining the quality of test items based on established standards in test development;
- develop their ethical sensitivity in the practice of test development and test usage; and
- develop their multi-cultural responsiveness in understanding and appreciating the influence of personal beliefs, emotions, and cultural differences in writing test items and developing an entire test.
