The most significant phase in formulating assessment questions is the creation of the Test Specification Table (TST). A reliable TST can generate high-quality assessments that test students' comprehension of a topic. Most universities have begun requiring TST preparation for each course prior to the start of a teaching and learning session. Its goal is to assure consistency in the assessment questions provided by each lecturer, even if they are completed by various people. Despite the importance of TST preparation, no research has been conducted to determine the extent to which TST is effective in achieving learning objectives. As a result, descriptive statistical analysis will be used in this study to evaluate student achievement on an assessment created in accordance with revised Bloom’s taxonomy. The data for statistics and probability courses offered to students at Malaysia's largest public universities is the focus of this case study. The study's findings revealed that TST is helpful in assisting in the development of high-quality assessment questions for assessing a student's progress. This research also offers some changes to the TST production process so that it can become a more comprehensive guide for future question drafters.
