The purpose of this study was to document the effects of
applying the platform unity concept, a concept based on the
principle of curriculum alignment. This principle states that
the planned, the delivered, and the tested curricula are
congruent. Specifically, platform unity aligns planned,
domain-referenced content with appropriate test types.
Mathematical formulae were created to determine numerically if
planned and tested content were congruent. In addition, four
other constructs were examined. They included overtesting and
undertesting of course content and, effectiveness and
efficiency of test item type selection.
