Yardstick Itematic helps you build your item bank quickly, effectively, and within budget.

Writing items for your item bank is a costly and time consuming process. Yardstick Itematic is a revolutionary way to build multiple questions at once without having to painstakingly write out each question individually. Based on the principles of automated item generation (AIG), Yardstick Itematic is a user-friendly web-based tool where your authors can create hundreds of questions at a time, instead of just one.

Yardstick Itematic works by segmenting a question into multiple components based on its grammatical structure.

Using a model defined by the user, a list of alternative stem components (e.g., procedures, symptoms, patient characteristics, etc.) become easily interchangeable. This allows users to quickly construct unique questions and answer options in a systematic manner that is more efficient than creating questions one by one.

  • Easily create question templates
  • Specify sets of valid question stems
  • Create comprehensive lists of question options
  • View various combinations and permutations
  • Denote “friend” and “enemy” options
