Online practice tests have been used as an alternative e-learning approach to traditional paper-based preparatory exams. Most online tests are designed to assist learners with randomized multiple choice questions (MCQ) with automatic scoring systems. This paper deals with the problems associated with content development for a national database of questions (test items) for the higher secondary board examinations in the context of Bangladesh. The authors analyze the process of developing board approved structured questions and suggest three requisite steps: 1) identifying skills, 2) question writing, and 3) scenario or stem writing using Bloom’s taxonomy of cognitive assessment. This paper highlights the need for a coherent content development system as a precursor for maintaining the authenticity, reliability and reusability of structured questions. The test items cover four types of knowledge to meet the board approved objectives for assessments.
