Characteristics of A Good Test
1- Validity:
A test is considered as valid when it measures what it is supposed to measure.
2- Reliability :
A test is considered reliable if it is taken again by the same students under the same circumstances and the score average is almost the constant , taking into consideration that the time between the test and the retest is of reasonable length.
3- Objectivity:
Objectivity means that if the test is marked by different people, the score will be the same . In other words, marking process should not be affected by the marking person's personality.
4- Comprehensiveness:
A good test should include items from different areas of material assigned for the test. e.g ( dialogue – composition – comprehension – grammar – vocabulary – orthography – dictation – handwriting )
5- Simplicity:
Simplicity means that the test should be written in a clear , correct and simple language , it is important to keep the method of testing as simple as possible while still testing the skill you intend to test . ( Avoid ambiguous questions and ambiguous instructions ) .
6- Scorability :
Scorability means that each item in the test has its own mark related to the distribution of marks given by ( The Ministry of Education) .

While preparing our usual tests, we need to have many important points in our minds as we write them :
1- Organization of data, school ,subject ,term , session and time.

7- Keep the mechanics simple and clear . Don’t mix types of test items ,(general questions in place of language item or vice versa )
8- Test should involve the cognitive ,effective and psychomotor skills that are important to the units ,varied (subjective and objective questions )and measure different aspects .reasoning ,observation ,comprehending and deducing.
