Emphases were place on test planning, test preparation, trial testing, test evaluation, test production publication and distribution, as well as the challenges surrounding the construction and development of test. The conclusion reached is that the challenges outlined in the paper can be overcome if a test developer is well knowledgeable in psychometrics and is grounded with the contextual insight of the content of the his proposed test or is willing to consult expert. The recommendation that test should be constructed and developed by experts and that intending test developers should first become expert in the field of psychometric were made.
