Effects of Violating Three Multiple-Choice Item Construction Principles.
Schrock, Timothy J.; Mueller, Daniel J.
Journal of Educational Research, v75 n5 p314-18 May-Jun 1982
Three item-construction principles for multiple-choice tests were studied to determine how they affected test results for high school students: (1) use of incomplete sentence stem; (2) location of blank in the stem; and (3) presence of noncueing material. Differences in item construction had a slight effect on test results. (Authors/CJ)
