Undergraduate Student Response Strategies to Test Questions of Varying Format.
Barnett-Foster, Debora; Nagy, Philip
Higher Education, v32 n2 p177-98 Sep 1996
A study compared response strategies and error patterns of 272 college freshmen on chemistry test items in multiple choice and constructed response formats. Analysis of test data indicated no significant difference in solution strategies used or types of errors committed across test formats. However, interviews with 21 participants revealed subtler differences in types and frequencies of problem-solving behavior. (Author/MSE)
