Coordinated Session: Technology-Enhanced Items: Lessons Learned and Future Directions

As assessments move from traditional paper-pencil administration to computer-based administration, many testing programs are incorporating technology enhanced items (TEIs) into assessments with the goals of measuring higher-order thinking, offering insight into problem-solving, and representing authentic real-world tasks. This session explores diverse applications of technology enhanced items and describes lessons learned from their administration. Additionally, this session introduces methodologies intended to model aspects of TEIs which are not considered in traditional latent variable models. The session includes commentary and discussion from an expert in item development.
