The Twelve Days of Testing

I thought I would share the Twelve Days of Testing since final exams are beginning and I obviously seem to be getting into the holiday spirit....
  1. Create a successful testing environment
  2. Follow the recommended time for administering tests
  3. Establish rapport with examinees
  4. Limit test anxiety
  5. Provide test security and eliminate cheating
  6. Understanding the numbers I, II, III, IV
  7. Interpreting test scores
  8. Analyze individual tests scores across all levels - instructor, district, and state
  9. Provide positive reinforcement and build upon an examinee’s relative strengths
  10. Remediate an examinee’s relative weaknesses
  11. Implement improvements across all levels
  12. Read and learn “The Secret of Writing Multiple Choice Test Items”
Happy Holidays! J.T.


  1. Cute! But don't forget a 13th one. Know and use appropriate accommodations and modifications. (or maybe you did and I missed it)

  2. I totally agree with PatESL. I actually did include "Students with an IEP may have special accommodations as specified in an IEP, IRP, 504, LEP, and ELL" within the 1st link "Create a successful testing environment," but it should be more prominently noted. Thanks for the feedback!
