20201016T1200 20201016T1345 Asia/Ho_Chi_Minh IMPROVING ASSESSMENT QUALITY THROUGH ONLINE TEST ITEM ANALYSIS

Learning Management Systems (LMSs) have been enabling functions for tracking students' participation and performance in ways that were unimaginable and almost impossible in a traditional brick-and-mortar setting. Not only do Mini tests deployed on LMSs assist instructors in consolidating learners' knowledge and skills, they also provide insights into learners' performance levels. If analyzed methodologically, those mini tests results may as well act as a critical indicator for improving the quality of the tests per se. In the current paper, how item analysis of test results may shed light on enhancing test design quality in English language assessment will be discussed. Data of test results from two English courses at a university in the South of Vietnam will be analyzed to illustrate how item analysis could enhance test reliability by revealing the extreme items, i.e., either too easy or too challenging and biased items, i.e., negatively correlated with learners' midterm and final test scores.
