Abstract

Beginning in the fall of 1979, at their respective institutions, each author used criterion-referenced measurement to assess student achievement in the junior- and senior-level occupational therapy course in psychosocial dysfunction. Based on their experience, the authors offer a guide for the construction of criterion-referenced test items and discuss the implementation of criterion-referenced measurement in a traditional college setting.
