Multiple Choice Questions: A Close Look.
Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ.
A sample of 22 multiple-choice questions is provided to point up the potentialities of this type question, as well as to dispel the myth that "objective" tests require no thought, insight, or understanding. The questions have been taken from a variety of tests constructed by Educational Testing Service, and are presented as they appeared in the original tests, with the directions, when given, as they were given to the students. Each question is followed by a statistical analysis of its performance and by a brief discussion of the thought processes involved in formulating the questions and arriving at the correct answer.
