Grade Level Difficulty?

August 15, 2013 - 9:46am -- Lisa W.

As I have gone through this process and am writing and evaluating questions, I feel that I am not fully understanding the difficulty levels of question writing. To me it seems that the questions I evaluate are generally easy for 7th and 8th graders, and that I have possibly written mine too difficultly.  I am working off of the chart to analyze the questions, but feel that maybe I am still missing something. Does anyone have a way of judging difficulty other than referring to Webbs DOK chart?
