Objective Questions. Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, 21.
The first of three sequels to the booklet "Student Assessment," this booklet begins by describing and providing examples of four different forms that objective questions can take: (1) conventional multiple choice questions; (2) true/false questions; (3) assertion/reason items; and (4) matching items. Guidance is offered on how to decide which type of question to use in a given situation, and on how to write objective questions of different types. Methods for evaluating objective questions are then discussed, including evaluation by a colleague or validation panel and quantitative evaluation. Advice on how to mark objective questions concludes the booklet. Three general references and three subject-based references for teachers of chemistry, physics, and mathematics are recommended for further reading. (MES)
