A Confidence-Building Multiple-Choice Testing Procedure.
Wisner, Joel D.; Wisner, Robert J.
Business Education Forum, v51 n4 p28-31 Apr 1997
Undergraduate business students completed two multiple-choice tests: one in which they indicated their answer and one of three levels of confidence, and one in which they circled the item only when they possessed high confidence in the answer. The three-level test took longer to take and grade; students preferred the second format. Both types tended to increase student thoughtfulness. (SK)
