Multiple Choice Questions: Getting Them Right - eLearning Industry

Multiple Choice Questions: Getting Them Right - eLearning Industry | Creating Better Online Assessments | Scoop.it
Multiple choice questions are considered to be the question type with the widest possible range of applications, as they are well suited for testing almost any degree of understanding. This question type works equally well whether you need to test for knowledge retention, application of newly acquired knowledge, or the ability to analyze new contexts. Due to this (and a number of other factors), multiple choice questions are the leading question type both in the corporate and in the academic sector.

Examining Your Multiple-Choice Questions

Examining Your Multiple-Choice Questions | Creating Better Online Assessments | Scoop.it
As Ron Berk (known for his pithy humor) observes, the multiple-choice question “holds world records in the categories of most popular, most unpopular, most used, most misused, most loved and most hated.” According to one source I read, multiple-choice questions were first used around the time of World War I to measure the abilities of new Army recruits. As class sizes have grown and the demands on teacher time expanded, they have become the favorite testing tool in higher education.

Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Creating Better Online Assessments | Scoop.it

I just got this poster from a fellow teacher featuring the 6 thinking skills as outlined in the revised taxonomy. As you probably know, Blooms taxonomy that was first created in the 1950s has been revised by Krathwohl and there are two  main changes that appeared in this revised taxonomy: the first one is semantic in that nouns are now being replaced with verbs; and the second change relates to the order of these thinking skills.

You can let your learners order a process, let them make the right combinations, point something out in a picture (hotspot questions) or let them fill in a blank.
