    What item development best practices do you follow?

    A well written item is the result of a coordinated effort by a team comprising project manager, subject matter expert who is also an item writer, language reviewer, technical reviewer, and art work specialist. A project manager of program manager initiates the item writing activity by defining the scope, timelines, and the process. The next step in the planning of items, in the form of a blue print. Sometimes the blue print may be given by the client. An item writer writes an item which is thoroughly reviewed for its grade appropriateness, language accuracy, alignment with the standard, and technical correctness. If the item involves artwork, it is created and inserted at the appropriate place in the document.

    We create items from scratch and needless to say items are original. We build up project-based artwork library and use art pieces from the library in a file wherever applicable. We create a guideline document based on the specific requirements and guidelines from the client, and derive a checklist from the guidelines and attributes of a good item. Each reviewer has to strictly adhere to this checklist.

    Every item is thoroughly analyzed before sending out and the feedback of the reviewers is shared with the item writers. Not only the feedback from the internal reviewers, but also the feedback from the client is also shared with the item writers. Their items are monitored closely to ascertain that they are not committing the same mistakes and learning from the feedback, which means they are on the right learning path.


    What qualifications do you require for the item writers you employ?

    Item writers hold a minimum of a Bachelor's degree. They are not only experts in their subjects, they have had fairly good experience in item writing from their past and present work. Our subject matter expert team comprises our leading USA-based subject matter experts.


    What elements of item development are you able to complete? (e.g., content, graphics, audio, technology)

    We have vast experience making items with content, illustrations and graphics. Eduwizards has its own technology team with full capability and can satisfy any client needs regarding technology (and technology enhanced items). We can do audio as well, but have not yet had the opportunity to include audio within items.


    What is your experience with creating items that represent a variety of DOK levels and cognitive complexity?

    We are capable of creating and have done items of different Bloom's and DOK levels of cognitive complexity. Enclosed samples are of different DOK levels as indicated against each item. We can create both selected response items and constructed response items for NWEA.


    Are you able to provide technology enhanced items in a consumable technological format? (e.g., QTI, HTML 5, XML)
