The Assessment and Teaching of 21st Century Skills (ATC21STM) project had a research and development plan that reflected a traditional approach to conceptualisation of constructs, and then establishment of test blueprints followed by test construction. The test construction process included several stages – of drafting task ideas, panelling these with teachers, then piloting revised tasks, and trialling these with students. Within the conceptualisation phase, the project focused on the…
