There is a range of resources to help you as you prepare your tests and exams.

When preparing your test and/or exam there are several factors to consider, including:

  • Alignment to your learning outcomes
  • Diversity of questions including the use of selected response and constructed response questions
  • Question structure, including which question type to use online 
  • Mark allocation and marking criteria
  • Online setup and formatting 


The following resources will help you work through the above, and more.
