The workshop will cover principles for writing CME exam questions ("items"), suggestions for writing realistic and practical items at the appropriate cognitive level, and item writing exercises. Experts will have the chance to not only develop items, but receive instant feedback on how well their items match industry standards, allowing them to edit their items and have them accepted at the workshop. Subject matter experts will be provided the opportunity to learn cross-field item-writing principles which will allow them to write valid questions in a variety of professional and educational settings.
