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

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.
