National EMS Testing Information
Testing has consequences for students and instructors.
Teachers, students and candidates for certification often misunderstand tests. In this section I have written information that covers the purpose of tests and National EMS Certification.
I have described the art of item (test question) development and how to use test questions in education. The role of a practice analysis in the classroom as a key to answering “what to teach” is included. Answering the question, “what is passing?” is also covered. Finally, instructors will benefit from the information regarding how to improve the validation of the tests they create.
