DOI: 10.4018/978-1-5225-7829-1.ch015
This chapter presents a completely structured training (CST) for the Angoff standard-setting method. The CST was developed to address the challenges teachers face in making the required probability judgments about student performance. It includes a comprehensive curriculum and instruction, practice, and feedback to guide participants on task performance. Overall, the approach is useful for developing critical-thinking skills among teachers in the context of assessing and evaluating educational achievement. This chapter also describes and illustrates how to use the training to facilitate professional development for K–12 teachers through programming. Guidelines, lessons and recommendations for implementation and study of CST are also provided.
