Team-Based Testing
Revolutionizing Student Testing with Group Collaboration
Testing in teams has become increasingly popular as research shows students form a more in-depth understanding of test material.
Why use team-based testing?

In team-based testing, students first take the test individually and see their overall score without knowing which questions they missed. They then take the same test as part of a team. This form of testing is a form of cooperative learning, which has been known to enhance individual learning since the 1980’s. Students who participate in group testing are not only successful on the tests taken with others, but perform better individually in the long run (see this study). By encouraging students to explain why some answers are better than others and engage in discussion with others, these tests give students a more in-depth understanding of content while also helping students practice critical thinking and professional interpersonal skills.  Read more here. 

examN+’s iRAT/tRAT test scheduling automates this entire process; it automatically administers tests individually (during the iRAT phase) and then creates groups (during the tRAT phase) and schedules a test for each group.

Team-Based Testing
Individual Readiness Assurance Testing
Students are shown their test scores immediately after they take a test individually. The specific questions they missed are not detailed. This gives students the ability to have more honest discussions with their classmates during the tRAT.
Team Readiness Assurance Testing (tRAT)
Once taken individually, the same test is administered again to groups of students who are now working in teams. Each team of students discusses and re-evaluate questions in a group setting and a single test is submitted for the group. After the test is submitted, the incorrect and correct responses are displayed.
