Kolstad, Rosemarie K.; Kolstad, Robert A.
Educational Research Quarterly, v13 n4 p2-5 1989
The effect on examinee performance of the rule that multiple-choice (MC) test items require the acceptance of 1 choice was examined for 106 dental students presented with choices in MC and multiple true-false formats. MC items force examinees to select one choice, which causes artificial acceptance of correct/incorrect choices. (SLD)
