Kolstad, Rosemarie K.; Kolstad, Robert A.
Journal of Dental Education, v55 n2 p161-63 Feb 1991
A study evaluated the use of a "none-of-these" option on multiple-choice achievement tests in undergraduate dental education. Results indicated this option neither enhanced nor diminished examinee performance stability but did reduce the examinee's opportunity to select correct choices by means unrelated to course objectives, thereby enhancing validity.
