NCHEC Item Writing Workshop: Acquire Skills to Enhance Research, Evaluation, and the Health Education Profession

Melissa Rehrig, MPH, MCHES, NCHEC; Jim McKenzie, PhD, MCHES, Penn State UniversityHershey; Jacquie Rainey, DrPH, MCHES, University of Central Arkansas; Dianne Kerr, PhD, MCHES; Kent State University; David Brown, PhD, MCHES, Jackson State University Background: Learning to write valid and reliable exam items is a vital skill for the health education specialist practicing in any setting (academic, community, worksite, school, and medical). Such items are used by health education specialists to evaluate and conduct research about health-related knowledge. The National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, Inc. (NCHEC) has been offering the Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) examination since 1990 and the Master Certified Health Education Specialist (MCHES) examination since 2011. During this time, it is has been the responsibility of NCHEC's Division Board of the Certified Health Education Specialist (DBCHES) in partnership with Professional Examination Services (PES) to create the items that appear on the examinations. Methods: It is now time that the development of examination items become more transparent and that the health education profession have the opportunity to become involved in the process. Therefore, the purpose of this workshop is twofold. The first is to enhance the knowledge and skills of the participants on test item development, construction, and evaluation. Participants will learn the guidelines used to write exam questions and what constitutes a "good" question. These newly acquired skills can be generalized to a variety of health education programming to enhance the rigor of research and evaluation. And, the second is to increase the item pools for both the CHES and MCHES examinations. Specific information will be provided concerning the process by which test items are validated and placed into the appropriate Responsibility and Competency for the CHES and MCHES examinations.
