Mini-Assessment Series

Multiple-Choice Questions

This mini-webinar covers all those pesky details about multiple-choice items and their distractors.  You get tools for creating items and a QC checklist – resources your subject matter experts can use over and over.  You will see good and bad examples and leave with guidelines on how to develop valid multiple-choice questions that discriminate those who know from those who don’t     

Objectives:  You will be able to: 

  • Write questions (items) that comply with best practices
  • Write responses (correct answers and distractors) that are parallel in construction and lack specific determiners (cues)
  • Develop multiple-choice questions that measure the knowledge and skills your situation requires

Length: 75 minutes

Materials:  Workbook with rules and a QC checklist
