Quality Control Checklist for Item Development and Test Form Construction

This checklist has been developed for use by state education agency staff to review developed test items and test forms submitted by vendors or item development committees. This checklist can also be used to train new office assessment staff, and item content and bias review committees. Because each state has its own unique test design and assessment plan, states are encouraged to modify this checklist to meet their needs. The ultimate goal is to ensure that all test forms used in large-scale assessment programs meet the content specifications set forth in the test blueprints and guiding documents, as well as meet professional and psychometric standards for excellence.
