It’s Test Bank Time!

We’re going to begin developing CDE prep test banks today. You will be developing test banks of 25 questions each for your chosen CDE.  Those not preparing for a specific CDE will be helping with some of the other CDEs.  Each test bank you create will be worth 20 points in the grade book.  We’ll be using tests that we already have either in the tubs, Google Classroom, online, or from the National CDE tests that have already been released. You won’t have to make up your own questions, just retype them into ExamView.

Install this software.  You will have to restart your computer after you install.

Once your computer is re-started, open ExamView Test Generator.  You’ll find it in your launch pad.

Name your Test Bank with the  name of the CDE and a number.  Each subsequent test bank you create, will be the next number.  i.e.- NatRes 1, NatRes2, VetSci1, VetSci2, VetSci3, etc.

Keep following the same process until you have typed in 25 questions.  When you have typed 25 questions, click File>Save As> Title your test bank VetSci1, or whatever is pertinent to your specific test bank.  Your computer will automatically save your test bank in the “banks” folder.  Once you have saved your test bank, email it to me.

If you need help, please ask.  Hopefully I’ve laid out the directions pretty simply for you.  I will be creating tests for members to study from by pulling random questions from the test banks we will be developing.  Feel free to develop more than one test bank today – as mentioned above – these will be worth 20 points each – a good way to boost your grade and make up for late or work that’s been less than excellent.

***** We will leave for Flandreau next week Wednesday, March 16th at 8:00 a.m.  Bring lunch or money (or both), bring a PENCIL – we will be using scansheets and results will be available on judging card.  Dress appropriately for the weather.  Be here early enough to grab a clipboard if you will need one.  Keep track of your clipboard and make sure it gets back to the classroom.  We should be back around 3.  I’ll be checking grades with Mr. Boyens to make sure you are eligible.

Your first test bank is due Thursday, March 10, 2016 at 8:15 a.m.
