Use of an Inclusive Option and the Optimal Number of Options for Multiple-Choice Items.
Crehan, Kevin D.; And Others
Educational and Psychological Measurement, v53 n1 p241-47 Spr 1993
Studies with 220 college students found that multiple-choice test items with 3 items are more difficult than those with 4 items, and items with the none-of-these option are more difficult than those without this option. Neither format manipulation affected item discrimination. Implications for test construction are discussed. (SLD)
