Test Question Templates

For many years, I struggled with a common teaching dilemma: how can I help my undergraduate students practice and perform analytical thinking within the confines of traditional high-stakes tests?

We call the framework Test Question Templates, or TQTs for short.

Our first peer-reviewed paper on TQTs is this:

And here are some other sources of information about TQTs:
