Anderson, Paul S.
International Journal of Educology, v2 n2 p143-84 1988
Seven formats of educational testing were compared according to student preferences/perceptions of how well each test method evaluates learning. Formats compared include true/false, multiple-choice, matching, multi-digit testing (MDT), fill-in-the-blank, short answer, and essay. Subjects were 1,440 university students. Results indicate that tests students liked least have highest evaluation ability. (TJH)
