Evaluating Achievement

By

Abstract

The teacher-made tests comprise all these tests constructed by classroom teachers individually or in groups for the assessment of their pupil's achievement in specific school subjects. Such tests assume various labels such as quizzes, mid-term tests, end-of-term/year examinations, examinations and the like. The tests also assume various forms since the teachers feel free to use any test item-type they deem suitable and convenient. The variations in label and form leads to lack of similarity in teacher- made tests with respect to length, timing, scoring pattern, item types and item quality.
