SEE ITEM Grids

SEE Test Standardization 2021
SEE Standardization test will start from 2021. For this, various activities are undertaken. The main activities are item development, pre-testing of items, item analysis, selection of quality items, pre-test of test and establishing quality of test. These process are briefly described below.

Item Development

A good test item needs to fulfill various criteria – represent important aspect of curriculum; proper item format; test at required cognitive behavior; meet statistical requirements such as difficult level, discrimination index; and be at acceptable valid, reliable and fairness levels.
Item development for SEE standardized test followed curriculum of grade X. In order to make the curriculum and specification grid provided in the curriculum comprehensible, the specification grid was given below.

Marking Scheme
Constructed Response/Subjective type of items are realtively open with possiblity of divergent responses. In order to make marking of such items uniform as far as possbile, marking scheme are developed. During drafting of items key answer for the objective type items and marking schemes for SAQ and LAQ are also prepared, pre-tested, and finalized. Basically, following aspects should be considered while developing marking scheme.
  • Score points to elements or reasoning steps are allocated – not on the assumed difficulty level of item.
  • Marking schemes are based on the analysis of the types of expected answers.
  • Crucial elements are listed, and reasoning is presented in a step-wise, hierarchical order.
  • All possible/expected answers are provided as far as possible and where open indicative suggestions for possible/probable answers are provided.
