The assessment validation checklist is a powerful tool that can help you create a quality review process that will help you achieve your desired results.

You’ll need to gather all of the information necessary for an effective validation process. This includes details about your current assessment procedures and methods, as well as the data collected from past assessments. You’ll also want to make sure that you have access to any relevant study or research materials that may support your claims or hypotheses.

Once all of this information is ready, it’s time to start assembling the assessment validation template itself. A Lumiform template gives a first glimpse of how you can structure your assessment validation checklist, but it can be highly customized to meet your specific needs.

An assessment validation template ensures that your focus on the following sectors of improvement:
