How to Design, Construct and Evaluate a Multiple-Choice Examination in Health Education--A Practical Approach.
Fox, Robert A.
A well developed multiple choice test is a reliable instrument for grading students and evaluating teacher presentation. There are three steps in the development of a valid multiple choice examination: 1) design or "blueprinting," 2) item construction, and 3) item analysis and evaluation. "Blueprinting" is the identification of the types of knowledge to be measured and the relative importance of each. The actual writing of the questions, or item construction, follows. Item evaluation examines each question to test its validity and clarity. Explanations and examples for each step are included in this guide. (CJ)
