    To develop support materials to assist in developing, administering, and grading written examinations required in IES 6, Professional Capabilities and Competence .


    This project has developed an International Education Information Paper, Development and Management of Written Examinations, which assists professional organizations conduct written examinations to assess the capabilities and competence of candidates for qualification. The paper provides an overview of the policies concerned with the development and administration of examinations, including "high stakes" examinations that lead to qualification as a member of a professional organization. It also includes examples of the processes and procedures that member bodies use to deliver reliable and valid assessments, including appropriate elements of quality control. The paper is especially useful to developing organizations that need to make decisions on assessment practices for their education programs.
