A great resource on test composition and design

Texas Tech has a very helpful page outlining some principles concerning test composition and design. It offers a good overview of Bloom's taxonomy, as well as a basic description of test reliability and validity. There's also a chart comparing the merits of various test formats (multiple choice, essay, true-false, etc.). A good place to start when thinking about assessing students!
