Frisbie, David A.; Sweeney, Daryl C.
Journal of Educational Measurement, v19 n1 p29-35 Spr 1982
A 100-item five-choice multiple choice (MC) biology final exam was converted to multiple choice true-false (MTF) form to yield two content-parallel test forms comprised of the two item types. Students found the MTF items easier and preferred MTF over MC; the MTF subtests were more reliable. (Author/GK)
