Abstract

This article describes a project used in a sophomore-level psychological testing and measurement course. The project helps integrate the seemingly separate topics of item writing, reliability, and validity by having students work through the different phases of developing a test. Students have reported that this project was valuable in learning how to create and evaluate tests.
