Marking Systems for Multiple Choice Examinations
Whitby, L. G.
Medical Education, 11, 3, 216-20, May 77
Advantages and disadvantages of no-penalty and penalty marking systems are discussed. Ways in which examiners have attempted to correct for guessing by students are reviewed, along with the use of "don't know" options and confidence-weighting for attempting to assess the degree of certainty that candidates attach to their answers.
