Can Multiple-Choice Tests Measure Writing Skills?
Breland, Hunter M.
College Board Review, 103, 11-3,32-3, Spr 77

The use of multiple-choice tests in combination with essay assignments can be the most educationally sound solution to the administrative problems involved in college course placements. (Editor/LBH)
