The Writing of Multiple-Choice Mathematics Test Items.
Horn, Dorothy M.
This paper is designed to assist mathematics teachers in writing multiple-choice test items. The steps in constructing test items are considered and suggestions for revising poorly constructed items are given. Poor items as well as good are considered and in some cases the changes needed to overcome weaknesses in an item are indicated. The revised items which are included in this paper appear in the series of booklets, "Grades 7 and 8 Mathematics Test Item Pool." Objectives for two units at the seventh and eighth grade levels and grids used in developing sample items for these units are shown in the appendices. (FL)
