Abstract

[Evidence-centered assessment design (ECD) provides a simple principle as the basis of assessment design: assessment tasks should be designed to provide evidence of the claims which the assessment designers wish to make about the examinees. This paper looks at the Bayesian model of evidence which underlies much of the ECD philosophy. It then goes on to explore how the ECD principle can help assessment designers think about three important issues in the future of assessment: (1) How can we organize evidence about student performance gathered from diverse sources across multiple time points? (2) How should we balance information gathered about multiple aspects of proficiency? (3) How should we collect evidence from complex tasks? The chapter illustrates these ideas with some examples of advanced assessments that have used ECD.]
